I know some fans have issues with that scene, often accusing Brooks of over-acting it, but I do think it was the character undergoing a meltdown as you said.

I've witnessed nervous breakdowns TWICE. So I know that there is no such thing as overacting a meltdown. Probably helps in appreciating Brooks' performance.

Re: Anger or Sadness

Everything mentioned already has been brilliant.

I also get shivers with Patrick Stewart's performance in Chain of Command. Very stirring.

An early episode of the saga that comes to mind is The Naked Time. Notably Spock's breakdown scene. And I think someone already mentioned Kirk in that same episode.

I always thought that what really sells that scene is Shatner's soft "No..." at the end.

Anger: Stewart in First Contact: "this far, no further!

Brooks' "it's real" scene, on the other hand, was a moment of pure narm: really couldn't hold back a chuckle.

I don't remember anyone mentioning this, but Jim Kirk's birth in Star Trek 09.

Even though the Aldeans stole the Enterprise children, I actually felt bad for Radue when he was nearly brought to tears at the conclusion of the episode.

In "Who Mourns for Adonais", Michael Forest's performance when he announces there is no room left for gods. His portrayal of sadness hits the mark.

Re: Anger or Sadness

1. Spock's anger in Amok time and when he strangles Kirk after his mom dies

2. Kirk's pain when Spock dies. He doesn't even move from his spot on the floor.....

3. The naked time

4. When McCoy is dying

For me, it was Brooks in DS9's "Emissary." That sequence aboard the doomed Saratoga when the Bolian security chief pulled Sisko away from his dead wife and his cry of anguish was something I'll never forget.

Later on, when Sisko finally met Picard, I genuinely thought Sisko was going to strangle him. That look of barely contained anger in Sisko's demeanor and voice, yeah, that was another good moment for Brooks, IMO.

Definitely my two favorites from Sisko. The seething rage he had was moving.





I'd also add:

Others mention Kirk's "Khan!' anger, and his sadness after both Spock and David die. Totally agree! I'd add Kirk's eulogy of Spock "His was the most...human," speech, and "Let's get the hell out of here," in City on the Edge of Forever.

Picard's "...And I will make them pay!" speech.

Spock touching the door after his mother leaves, after refusing to turn command over to Scotty, in Journey to Babel gets me every time.

Yes it is way over acted, but how can you not mention Spock mind-melding with the horta? "Pain!'

When Riker is forced to kill Yuta in Vengeance Factor you can tell he is sad, but holding it in.

Whenever Dukat was enraged...too many to list.
Dukat when Zial dies

Data's non-emotional sadness when Laal dies, and when he deactivates Lore for the final time.

When Worf kills Duras.
