Bakula had no chemistry with Ada Marentes, whatsoever. I never bought their romance, because of it. I also hated Scott's delivery on all those stupid speeches. Yes, they were boring and they were stupid, but he could've tried to ham it up, with them, or do something to make them seem more interesting. Instead, he'd make the unfortunate acting choice of making like he was reciting Shakespeare. There's no question that Bakula was given some pretty bad material, often times, but his acting range isn't especially broad, either.
