I know, the guy was a genius. The Enterprise could be blown into ashes and used as kitty litter and Scotty would still find a way to have it running by the time Kirk needed it. Perhaps, I exaggerated a little but he could make chicken salad out of chicken shyte which to me is pretty damn cool!

Scotty, closely followed by Miles O'Brien. They seemed the most willing to get their hands dirty to get the job done. Tucker probably would be #3 for that same reason.

Oddly, though I was never really much of a Star Trek: Voyager fan, I have to go out on a limb here and pick Torres on this one.

As someone who is primarily a TOS fan, I eventually tired of Scotty's constant whining. He was a one-note background character (which isn't a criticism, really - that's just how the show was built back then), while the ensemble pieces of the TNG-era developed characters like Torres more and actually made them interesting.

My second favorite would be O'Brien, as it was nice to see someone who started as essentially a background character on TNG develop into a full character on DS9.

I couldn't stomach watching Star Trek: Enterprise often enough to really rate Tucker either way, so I'm throwing him out on a technicality.

As for LaForgery, I had to dock points for him pronouncing "nacelles" as "nasals" in Star Trek: First Contact during the launch of the Phoenix. He usually did an adequate job of holding the ship together, though - that business in the Veridian system notwithstanding.

O'Brien was the closest thing to Scotty. He could fix anything but.... he wasn't Scotty.

Scotty could do it all. Hopefully he'll get a larger role in the upcoming film.
