Lieutenant Commander Michael Argyle was one of four officers to serve as Chief engineer on the starship USS Enterprise-D in the year 2364. (TNG - The Lost Era novel: The Buried Age)


Aboard the Enterprise

Argyle oversaw the shakedown cruise of the Enterprise in 2363, and was naturally over-protective of the ship's engines in the early days of their voyages. When Captain Jean-Luc Picard ordered that the Enterprise proceed to maximum warp speed, Argyle was very unhappy, but carried out his orders and got the ship to exceed warp 9.7. (TNG novelization: Encounter at Farpoint)

As one of the chief engineers aboard, Argyle personally oversaw Kosinski's warp speed experiments, even though he didn't trust Kosinski with the engines, believing his equations to be ridiculous. Ultimately, he was proved correct as the enhancements in engine performance were due to his assistant, The Traveler. (TNG episode: "Where No One Has Gone Before")

Argyle was also called into sickbay several weeks later, to oversee the construction of Lieutenant Commander Data's "brother", Lore, who had been recovered on Omicron Theta. (TNG episode: "Datalore")

Later Career

After leaving the Enterprise, Argyle served as Chief engineer aboard the USS Repulse under Captain Ariel Taggert. From the Repulse, he went to the USS Excalibur under Captain Morgan Korsmo. Argyle was killed on the Excalibur during the Borg incursion of Earth space in 2373. (TNG novel: Vendetta, NF short story: "Making a Difference")

Discrepancy Note: In TNG comic: "Suspect", Argyle's first name was "Terence", and he was assassinated in 2371 by a Zortai with a grudge against the chief engineers of the Enterprise.

Argyle is the now dead but once "stalwart Ghoul manservant" of adventurer Herbert Dashwood in 2277.



Argyle was born before the Great War and first met Dashwood in 2241, when the adventurer stole his girlfriend. However, despite the misunderstanding, they became good friends.

If radio dramas inspired by their adventures hosted by Galaxy News Radio are to be true, Argyle was a very frank, untrusting individual constantly exasperated by his master's recklessness and how easily he fell for women. Nevertheless, he was very loyal, refusing to abandon him and always saving him from any dire situations, no matter how much force was required.

Argyle was a master of unarmed combat, practicing an undisclosed style of Martial Arts, being so skilled he could rip out an opponent's heart or kill a Mirelurk with his bare hands. He apparently liked to collect martial arts memorabilia as he carried a Bobblehead of Vault Boy practicing Martial Arts. He was also a gifted shot although he very rarely used his gun, a 10mm Pistol. He was a huge fan of the Shady Sands Shuffle maneuver.

The final adventure with Dashwood came when Dashwood was seduced by Penelope Chase into revealing to her the secret underground village of Rockopolis that Dashwood and Argyle were charged with keeping secret. Dashwood, ever easily controlled by dames, took her to it where she revealed she was in fact a Slaver double agent for Paradise Falls. Before she could kill Dashwood, Argyle ripped out her heart with an attack of his dubbed the "Eagle Claw". Unfortunately, it was too late for either Argyle or Dashwood to stop the slavers from attacking the village, and they were separated in all the confusion.

Interactions with the player character

Argyle's corpse can be found in Rockopolis. This information can then be given to Dashwood, much to the ex-adventurer's sorrow.

  • "Lotus kicckkk!!!"
  • "Funny business? Why, Miss Chase, you hurt my feelings. I mean, there ain't nothin' funny about...the EEEEAAAGLE CLAW!" (Before ripping Penelope Chase's heart out.)
  • "I always knew this broad was heartless. Get it boss? Heartless?" (After ripping Penelope Chase's heart out.)
  • "Ah, the good ol' Shady Sands Shuffle, sure brings me back." (After placing a live grenade in a Super Mutant's pocket.)
  • "Hey Fellah, got a light?"


Argyle only appears in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

  • Argyle may be reference to Kato from The Green Hornet, a popular radio program from the 1930s.


  • Argyle's body might disappear after installing the Xbox 360 patch. (confirmed)
