Chief Engineer?Edit

I was just wondering why this character isn't listed as one of the Cheif Engineers of the Enterprise-D like this character, Logan. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Skeletorsingh (talk • contribs).

I guess in the non-canon world he was called a chief engineer, but there is no reference to him holding that position in the episode or script. He does answer when Picard calls for "Main Engineering," but he may have just been the shift commander on duty. The only thing that may indicate his position is his rank, higher than the confirmed (by script) Chief Engineer Logan from two episodes prior.--Tim Thomason 01:07, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
I don't know if he was the chief engineer or just a high ranking shift supervisor. I don't even think "Chief Engineer" Logan was even an actual chief engineer. In Correct (talk) 18:33, January 13, 2016 (UTC)


How did we know that he always announced himself by name? The Enterprise D originally had multiple chief engineers. --RicoRichmond 16:52, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

There is nothing in the script that suggests Picard was annoyed at Commander Lynch. Until someone can cite evidence of this, I'm striking the comment in question. 22:26, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
Picard appeared to be annoyed at him using his full name.--31dot 03:27, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

Dukes of Hazzard? Edit

Lynch using his full name is reminiscent of Roscoe P. Coltrane in 'The Dukes of Hazzard' Picard's grimace seems to be a nod to Boss Hogg. Is this deliberate?The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

There is no evidence of that. 31dot (talk) 10:29, April 23, 2015 (UTC)

Deleting ThisEdit

In 2367, under Chief Engineer Geordi La Forge, Lynch was a duty engineer. He, along with Sarah MacDougal, were supervisors for the third shift. During the upgrade of the subspace phase coils, their team performed the final calibration needed to complete the procedure. (TNG: "Galaxy's Child") The only thing that I saw in the remastered edition was his name. In Correct (talk) 04:28, January 15, 2016 (UTC)
