Oh, definitely. I much prefer Sisko to Sheridan or Sinclair. Overacting beats bad acting any day of the week.
At least with Brooks he got better as the series progressed whereas IMO Boxleitner was bad at the start through the finish.
I have to disagree with that.

In the beginning, he was acting as Captain Skippy. Even his voice over in the opening credits reflected this. Later, as he grew into the role, and the role grew into him, he was so much better, so much more entertaining. He was pretty awesome.
Not to mention (and I know Omaha knows this), Sheridan was deliberately written at first to work with the audience's expectations of a lightweight based on his previous roles.

I never gave much thought to Boxleitner's acting ability until the scene with Kosh in "Interludes and Examinations". Especially considering his actin partner was a mobile shower curtain.
