True... but sheer number of acting jobs doesn't necessarily guarantee quality, either. Adam Sandler is a terrible actor, and he seems to get plenty of work.
I'm not bashing Shatner. I love him as Kirk. I just don't think he's a stellar actor.
Adam Sandler is perfectly capable of acting, he just chooses not to. Ever seen Punch Drunk Love? The one film Sandler ever did with a good script.
If you take Shatner, Nimoy, Stewart and Spiner out of the equation Picardo wins by a landslide. Shatner, I dunno. He's one of those actors who's amazing at playing the characters he plays but who doesn't have a lot of range. Nimoy just might also be in that category.
But it's hard not to put Spiner above Picardo.
