To be honest, one of my least favorite main character acts was Scott Bakula. I know he is supposed to be a good actor, but I hated his portrayal of Archer.
I felt the same too (initially) and was one of factors that put me off ENT. But year ago saw the mirror two-parter and thought he was quite good. So gave the series another shot, and although still not my favorite actor or capt, quite enjoyed him off-and-on throughout the run.
Yeah, from whatever little I did see of ENT, I thought he did camped up the role. But the whole mirror Archer schizophrenic scenes were really interesting in that Mirror Darkly episode.



Though, even in that episode, his whole " grawrras im an evil XO trying to get some respect " came off more like whinny jock that wasn't getting what he wanted than legit.

^ To be honest, I did not care for his acting in the two mirror episodes.

I'll go by series:

TOS - William Shatner. His sentence construction and delivery really bugs the hell out of me.

TNG - Diana Muldaur. She was awful. A cheap knock-off of McCoy.

DS9 - Don't have any, loved the series and the cast.

VOY - Robert Beltran. It was obvious he didn't want to be there. Should have killed him off, promoted Tuvok and made Ayala the new Security Chief!

ENT - Jolene Blalock. Her method of doing controlled emotions was just a trout-pout. The character I didn't mind, but her delivery was weak in some places.
I agree with everyone on this list except for Shatner, who IMHO played Kirk to near perfection. The only problem I had with the Shat was the occasional ridiculous karate chop, especially the one he delivered to the Gorn.

I have to say that the worst regular series actress is Jennifer Lein (Kes) I've been through the Voyager series several times and each time I go through it, she gets more annoying.

She started out brutal, but got better. I'd rather have kept her over Wang or Beltran.

Ditto.

Actually, I thought she was cute as a button, and, to be honest, she was the only reason I could bring myself to watch the show. I think I've seen *maybe* six or seven post-Kes episodes.

"Cute as a button"? I thought her hairdo was very bizarre: not just on her, but for everyone who wears that hairdo. It's a good thing my opinions don't mean anything for people!

I did find the character of Kes a bit ironic. It seems you can't have a good Trek series without its token telepath who can detect things the others (and the computer) can't.

Yeah. She was cuter when she was a bad guy(literally). It sounds weird, but the cute innocent crap wasn't what I saw in one of her movies later after I watched Voyager.

Ethan Phillips. I suppose he's technically not the worst actor, but I can't stand Neelix.

Eric Bana as Nero: "Hello, Christopher." Easily the most frustrating line of Star Trek for me. The line was completely out of place; the pacing, the inflection, everything. It detracted from the tense scene and I couldn't stop thinking about it afterward.
I loved Eric Bana's delivery of that scene.

How about the woman who played Tincoo in VOY: "Virtuoso?" She made Beltran look like DeNiro.

Mistress Biata from "Angel One" anyone? Her buddy that defected with Ramsey was pretty awful as well. Come to think of it Ramsey was pretty bad too.

George Takei. Atrocious actor who reacts to anything by looking confused or giving a shit eating grin.

Nasty person and shameless media whore too. Has milked almost 50 year old quarrels on set and his own sexuality endlessly for tabloid exposure. Feels like he should be constantly in the public eye because he had a minor role in a 60s action show. Obsessively jealous that far more talented actors get more recognition than he should be getting for saying "Aye sir!" every 3 episodes.

His comeuppance thankfully eventually came. After bitching about Shatner's acting for years he made an embarrassing tit out of himself in his Voyager episode with a performance that wouldn't be passable in a school Christmas play. Wonderful. Loathsome human being. The Paris Hilton of Star Trek. He'd do anything to become a bit more famous.

Runner up is Eric Bana as Nero but at least he has given great performances elsewhere.

takei isn't a good actor, but to describe him as a 'loathsome human being' just makes you sound mental. and if he's always a bad actor, how is that one voyager episode a comeuppance? more like being consistant.
