Re: Worst Star trek actor ever

Speaking of Brooks, he was still pretty rough in the DS9 pilot. I hope he didn't scare too many viewers away with this (start at 5:00):

His acting smoothed out and he got into the rhythm of the role, but his famous breakdown in "Far Beyond the Stars" is still controversial - is this great acting, or awful? Start at 3:40.

Funny how at the time, I was pretty about "Far Beyond the Stars," but now it's great seeing the characters without their makeup. I think at the time I was just afraid the whole series would end with it being a story written by Benny Russell. And it would have been the fans howling NOOOO!!!! IT'S REEEAAAALLL!!!

Now that that threat is safely behind us, I think the Benny Russell breakdown scene is great.
