Re: Is Star Trek (the original series) aging really badly?

Shatner and Nimoy never seemed more than average actors to me. Certainly the characters they played were iconic, but their acting careers beyond Star Trek weren't that great in my opinion.

Who besides Patrick Stewart and Colm Meaney have had great acting careers beyond Star Trek? Alexander Siddig has done okay... I might be forgetting one or two, but I think William Shatner is definitely in the top 5 as far as success outside of Trek. How many Trek actors have won emmy's for non trek roles? Or has enjoyed starring roles in multiple popular tv shows? Shatner has.

I think Nimoy gave a better performance as Spock than 99% of trek actors, including shatner. Of course this is a matter of opinion.
