Comparisons to Scotty Edit

Is it possible for us to give a citation to the fan reaction to similarities between Argyle and Scotty? Otherwise, I'm not sure it really belongs here. --OuroborosCobra talk 06:35, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Maybe Argyle and Scotty comes from the same area in Scotland? Or Argyle just is the "Standard Scottish Engineer":D

I like Argyle, even compared to La forge. i am going to write several blogs about Star trek. and also the errors of the first season (incomplete crew for example) and I think that Star Trek TNG crossed the line by using the TOS klaxons. So why not have an engineer resembling Scotty? What is the officiall reason why Argyle disappeared?! Why hasn't Biff Yeager explained this...and why hasn't he appeared in any other Star Trek even as a different character?! It is dumb that he got killed of in all that literature.

I have a better explanation of why Argyle left...He appeared in Where No One Has Gone Before, Datalore, was mentioned on Lonely Among Us, and didn't he speak over the intercom on Hide And Q ???? Anyways, since all these episodes aired before 11001001, he probably transferred off of The Enterprise on Starbase 74.

I second that. I am going to delete the fan reactions. This is unsourced information. And earlier I added the similarities between TOS & TNG, since both started off with an incomplete staff. It got deleted. So I guess until somebody from the production staff explains more about Argyle, we must stick to the obvious facts.

As suggested in 2007, it should be removed as unsourced, as you said.--31dot 02:22, December 20, 2009 (UTC)
Here is the removed passage:

Argyle's appearance and vocal pattern resembled that of Montgomery Scott's in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home which fueled the fire of critics who claimed that The Next Generation was (again, as there were many such accusations made in the early days of the series) ripping off the classic Star Trek series.--31dot 02:23, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

Accent Edit

Um, who says he has a 'slight Northern English accent'? New England, maybe... 20:35, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

I think it is more of a slight Canadian accent. In Correct 23:10, April 9, 2012 (UTC)
