    Guys, I'm planning on going as Nurse Chapel for Halloween this year and I'm stocking up on costume and props as early as I can.

    I know Mc Coy used the medical tricorder during the series, but did Chapel ever use it? I did a Google image search and couldn't find an image of her using one.

    TIA,

    I'd go through TrekCore screencaps with a fine tooth comb if you want to be sure. However, it seems to make sense that she'd use one, so have at it!

    Yeah, I'm seriously tempted to get it anyway. And if anyone asks me about it, I'll tell them Dr. Mc Coy said I could borrow it.

    There's no reason to believe she didn't use it. We didn't really get much air time with Chapel, so... I'd have to believe she must have been trained to serve on away missions when no one else was available. So yes... get that tricorder! :)

    I'd imagine it was a standard piece of equipment.
