Curious to know how other fanfic writers handle writing Trek characters with accents. When you are writing Scotty, do you write his dialogue in Scots e.g. by having him say 'I cannae dae that Cap'n!' instead of 'I can't do that, Captain'. Ditto for Doctor McCoy and his southern charms :-) When I write Scotty, I use some Scottish slang terms e.g. having him call someone a numpty, but it's mostly 'regular' English. I'm not at all familiar with the Georgian accent, and don't really know what word choices people from Georgia would make (whereas I'm pretty familiar with Scots) so I sometimes struggle to write McCoy accurately. Are there any other characters this applies to? How have you all approached the issue?
