I wonder if there are reports from any actors/crew other than the secondary TOS cast?

They have. You catch enough folks on the convention circuit - guest actors on TOS, some of the new cast in the Bennett-produced Star Trek
movies - and they've said similar things, from the dismissive attitude on to line hogging/counting, etc.
I've been to lots of conventions, and have heard the stories. He'll I've met the man twice and thought he was quite unfriendly and ungracious.
But still that's all Star Trek stuff. What about all his other work? Has anyone else complained about this stuff?
