Also Bernie Casey in the Maquis was pretty bad
That's my vote, too. Start at 5:30, youch. It's weird watching Brooks play the "bantering" scenes right, and Casey get it all wrong, like they're in two different scenes rather than having a conversation. You're pretty bad when you made Brooks look like a perfectly natural, non-stilted actor by comparison.
I'm thinking they cast Bernie Casey with the Maquis twist in mind rather than the seemingly easy-going Starfleet veteran/friend portion of the role. Casey's pretty good in tough, disciplined roles, but his friendly exchange with Sisko and Dax was cringeworthy. He was miscast for half the story
