Gates McFadden
I would disagree, Gates was great in the role of Doctor Crusher, but I must say Diana Muldaur was far worst Star Trek actor. Why in the world, they gave her a chance to replaced Gates McFadden during one season of TNG. Thank God, that they made agreement to bring back Gates after just one season with Diana Muldaur. Also, Diana appeared in one episode of TOS and she wasn't very good in that episode too, and that is when she was much younger.

I have nothing against him, but Robert Beltran. So wooden.

Her character made an excellent foil for Picard; finally, someone to stand up to him! There was never any intent for her to stay more than one season. She was there while Gates McFadden had her baby.

My vote for worst Star Trek actor ever would be Marina Sirtis. She may have had black hair, but she acted like a "stereotypical dumb blonde" throughout most of TNG.

Actually she appeared in two TOS episodes:
In Truth is There No Beauty
Return to Tomorrow

And I stand by my opinion re: Gates.

Worst regular: Robert Beltran, he wasn't even trying.

Worst guest star: whoever played Sisko's mother. She was completely wooden.

Nana Visitor.

I think I'm going to have a seizure every time I hear her voice. Like Kramer from Seinfeld when he hears Mary Hart.
I'm pretty sure the title of the thread is "Worst Star Trek actor", not "Actor whose voice irritates you the most".

As for Nana Visitor, she is one of the best Trek actors.

I'm going to go with the nameless ensign from Voyager's "Displaced". From her hilariously over-the-top stunning to the worst line readings ever she fails on every level imaginable.

Jump to 4:20. Her scenes last for 20 seconds.

Eric Bana as Nero. The name was stupid. His odd drooping mouth was stupid. His monotone voice throughout the whole movie. Fuck, he was aweful.

How is his name any more stupid than Spock, Decius, Dax, Kira, Chang....Well, I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

Corbin Bensen. His performance as a Q was infuriatingly irritating, and until he showed up, the episode he was in was shaping up to be one of my top 5 favourites. It would be if he hadn't ruined it. I've never seen him in anything else (other than playing himself on "Seinfeld"). Based on his TNG performance, I think he's a hack.

Re: Worst Star trek actor ever

I forgot about Marina Sirtis. I think she got better, though; decent in the films.

Beltran is still worse.

Both were better than I would be, though.

They never intended for McFadden to return, she was fired and only came back after Muldaur decided to do a movie and was unavailable for the first few episodes of season 3 (she was offered a contract to become a series regular but refused).
McFaddens pregnancy had NOTHING to do with it, her son was born in 1991, you do the math and tell me what season that was.
