Re: How come the TNG cast is the closest of all show casts?

It makes a difference because actors' attitudes in real life can come across on the screen, even if it's not intentional. For example, in George Takei's autobiography, he says Shatner intentionally screwed up a scene where Kirk was going to tell Sulu that he had been given the Excelsior (by failing to completely commit himself to it), so the scene was dropped. (I think this was either film 4 or 5 - not sure now.) Shatner's insistence on being the star of any scene he's in, and the ONLY one to get any of the limelight in those scenes, affected the development of the relationship between Kirk and other characters.
