    Actually, Walter Koenig did a nice turn as Bester in Babylon 5.

    One of the few marginally watchable things about B5.

    Commissioner Ferris: "I'm sorry about causing your Communications Officer to call in sick today."
    Kirk, tense: "Understood."
    Commissioner Ferris: "With the wife I've got, I've always been partial to a hot piece of ass while on these trips. Got a little carried away ..."
    Kirk, very tense: "Under. Stood."

    There was no such thing as an 'ensemble' show on television in 1966. Anyone who was making that claim, no matter who they were, was completely utterly and totally full of shit. Simple as that.

    ^ There were ensemble shows in the 60's.

    Room 222 comes to mind..as does Mission: Impossible.

    Star Trek was not an ensemble show, nor was intented to be.

    Even those shows had one or two actors who were considered the leads. The only actors I remember from Room 222 are Michael Constantine and Karen Valentine, but it's a pretty safe bet that Peter Graves was signed as the lead of M:I.

    (Checking imdb.com for Room 222...)

    How could I forget Lloyd Haynes?

    All of the shows I'm thinking about had an actor signed as the lead as well... but then so did all of the modern Star Trek series.

    While none of the 60's shows (that I know of) had ensemble casts on par with Hill Street Blues or M*A*S*H*... shows like Mission:Impossible, Lost In Space, Land of the Giants, etc. featured all of the regulars in the opening credits and generally treated them as more integral components of the series.

    On Star Trek, they not only weren't featured in the opening credits but were regularly substituted with random stand-ins.

    Cue Adam and Jamie.

    The myth that Star Trek was an ensemble show is totally and completely BUSTED!
