Poll Results!

The question last time was which Chief Engineer was your favorite?
And the winner, hands-down with 44 percent of the vote, is none other than Montgomery (Scotty) Scott! He set the standard for all other engineers and was my vote as well!
Second place was claimed by Charles (Trip) Tucker III with 20 percent of the vote. Trip was one of the few characters on Enterprise that I really liked... And not only because of his propensity to run around the ship in his tight blue Starfleet underwear!!
And there was a three way tie for third place! Receiving 12 percent of the vote are Geordi LaForge, Miles O'Brien, and B'Elanna Torres from The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager! Geordi wasn't the first Chief Engineer The Next Generation had... In fact, there was no regular Chief Engineer for the entire first season! Season 2 saw Geordi move to Chief Engineer... it was a good transition for Geordi, as he was not getting a lot to do on the Bridge, sitting at Ops.
Miles O'Brien came from The Next Generation. He appeared in the pilot episode, 'Encounter at Farpoint' as a tactical officer on the battle bridge, and then five episodes later as a security officer. He worked his way up to Transporter Chief on The Next Generation before he left for Deep Space Nine.
B'Elanna Torres was a little hot-tempered, but she was an interesting character! And quite a change in dynamic from all the other Star Trek series... The first Star Trek series with a woman Captain also gets a female Chief Engineer! About bloody time, I say...Thanks for voting and look for a new poll appearing soon!
