Well if we're judging them on usefulness, I'd point out that Falco's kill count isn't much better than Slippy's.

numbers? ^^

If we're judging them on usefulness, then in order...
Slippy: Team mechanic, brilliant inventor and all-around maintenance guy, least skillful pilot but games like Assault show he's comfortable in other vehicles.
Peppy: Experienced advisor and navigator, has plenty of wisdom and sage advice, probably the one Fox listens to the most and is almost like another father to him.
Falco: He's, uh, brash and cocky and spouts lots of one-liners, somehow the second-in-command for his supposed ace piloting skills, which is a role Fox already serves.
Slippy wins because no matter how wimpy he can be in flight, his expertise is too invaluable in making Star Fox function.
Whoever started using the word "canon" in this context, anyway?

this is what TV tropes refers to as an "Informed Ability", we're told Slippy is a mechanical genius but we never really see it

We know he created the Blue-Marine and upgraded ROB's AI over the years. Do we need to see him building his tools and gadgets directly on-screen, taking away gameplay time?

At least when Slippy got into trouble you expected it, the other two however.......there is only room for one useless wingman and it has been taken Falco and Peppy, now do your jobs not slippy's.
