I like how, if you squint, the Continues Kirk appears to be Shatner Kirk. He nailed Shatner's posture and gestures.
I find him a little too soft spoken, he often seems that he's only the "nice Kirk" from "The Enemy Within"

But Spock is usually the worst casting choice in every remake. Can't find a second Nimoy.
Concur (although I do think Quinto does a nice job), and while I enjoy the various fan-continuations, I find the actors playing the principal characters all come across as fans getting to play dress-up - this is not a dig at the overall level of acting prowess, as I don't get this from the new characters, like the red-headed counselor in Continues (whose name is escaping me at the moment) or the guest parts.
