I have to go with Geordi Laforge even though I love Trip to pieces. Because if I were on a ship where Geordi is Chief Engineer, I would sleep like a baby every night knowing that the engines are in such good care and even in very dire situations I would trust him completely. How many times did he get the Enterprise out of impossible situations, with limited resources and a ridiculous deadline? Nuff said...

But Trip would definitely be a close second. Love him!

Scotty made everything sound so impossible and saved the day before the ship exploded. He is Legend.

Scotty was the "miracle worker." I would have to choose Scotty simply because he could do it all but Geordi would give him a run for his money.

Arrrrghhh another difficult choice for me because I loved Scotty, Geordi, and O'Brien... Scotty was magic though he was like the Johnny Unitas of Engineering. So, he got my vote.

Default Scotty!

Only ever one choice in it for me! Scotty was the original creative thinker, with making do with what he had & somehow managing to pull through by the skin of his teeth, sometimes using sheer will power alone!

I always felt that he had a more 'spiky' character to the others on the list & I would rather have him as my chief engineer than any of the others,

Scotty himself said he made situations look worse than they were to give himself more time to "work his magic".

Geordi had bionic vision, so he cheated.

I'd choose Trip cause he was the most interesting to me as a character, plus he was an engineer at a time when cruising around space didn't resemble being on a luxury cruise around the galaxy. He did some neat engineering maneuvers while on Enterprise.

Close second, the Chief. O'brien was brilliant and fun to watch at the same time. Plus, I can't understate his importance in the Dominion War.
