Anwar I agree she did look sexy as a cosmic cheerleeder. Though I can definitely see why she got called fat by a producer. She was sporting a little pouch. Still, she was sexy.

Jedi, did you ever watch the Original Series? Troi looked fine in a skirt.

I have seen the original series (though I'm not a huge fan) but that had the excuse of being in the 60's. When they they started the modern age I think it just didn't fit with where the rest of the show went. Thank God they dropped it after a few eps.

Denise. The character was bad, and her acting was bad. Gates and Marina were pretty bad, too, but she actually bothered me.

Chris Pine. Awful rendition of Kirk.

I know child actors are easy targets, but Brian Bonsall. Yeech!

And the worst of all time... Bitsy "I've only got one line, but By God I'm going to deliver it" Picard!

I think Chris did an awesome Kirk. Thankfully, I am in the majority this once.

As for most unprofessional, Robert Beltran you are the winner.
I know he gets a lot of heat for playing his character as reserved, but I have never seen "wooden." Voyager had more than it's fair share of flamboyant characters, Chakotay wasn't one of them.

Re: Worst Star trek actor ever

I think some are confusing CHARACTERS they don't like with bad acting performances, specifically in the cases of Diana Muldaur, Ethan Phillips, and Chris Pine.



Phillips was GREAT at portraying a very annoying character, just as Muldaur played a crusty McCoy-esque doctor well, and Pine played a juvenile punk Kirk very well.


At least I think so.

I agree. Beltran played Chakotay in an understated way that I think is consistent enough with a character who has spent a lot of time cultivating peace within himself.

I haven't seen much ENT, but in the few episodes I have seen, I consider Jolene Blalock's work to be uninspired and one-dimensional, with none of the subtlety shown by other actors playing Vulcans (such as the original Vulcan, Leonard Nimoy).

Pine IS a juvenile punk, so it's not that much of a reach. He's just playing himself.

So you've spent a lot of time with Chris Pine and know him personally?
