What do you think?
Sure, Kirk got the ladies (human and alien), and Spock got the lady (a nurse even!), but Scotty was the one with the ideas on how to make technology work best for the given situation. He didn’t get stuck deciding what colors to use (I’m looking at you, Chekov…), or what the mainstream media would say (like Uhura, who was clearly addicted to space talk radio). No, he knew the what the machines could do and what they couldn’t do, then he made them do what they shouldn’t do.
So he had the “creative use of technology” part pretty solid. What about the “interactive”?
