    I liked Iggy Pop in TMF... actually really liked both him and the episode.

    I must say, I didn't care for that guy who was the initiate from the DS9 episode where Dax has to spend a few days with a Trill initiate, part of the ritual to see is someone should be joined. Part of it was the whiny character.

    I was particularly underwhelmed with her performance last time I saw 'Deadly Years' myself - that whole 'blonde bombshell,' a former flame of Kirk's, in that rediculous pink outfit, and she's a doctor? All add up to me think very little of the character. And don't get me started on how she always spoke like she'd just run a marathon. Was that really considered attractive in the sixties? If so, I've found a new appreciation for being a child of the ninties...

    I would go with Paul Sorvino. What the heck is an actor like this doing on Trek? Don't get me wrong, I'm not stereotyping him as the eternal Italian Mob Boss or heavy cop, but he came off as completely out of his element in "Homeward". He also had no chemistry with Michael Dorn/Worf who was supposed to be his adopted brother.

    Stephen Hawking wasn't very animated.




    Just kidding. It was a superb bit.

    Yup. Nothing is funnier than mocking the handicapped.

    Aw c'mon, lighten up a little. A little tasteless, sure, but I'd give the guy a break.

    Ugh, I severely dislike that character/actor. Arjin the Trill initiate. He looked even whinier than Wesley Crusher and was a complete bore. I suppose he was written that way but the actor made him stuffy beyond redemption. I always hate it when he goes all "I should have known this!" to Dax.

    Joe Piscopo was embarassing... So was that whole episode. Some of the worst jokes I've ever heard. Even Guinan is making a fool of herself. "You're a droid and I'm annoyed". Wow, that's a real kneeslapper! A thousand years of socialising and that's the best she can come up with?

    Jason Alexander I don't mind much... It was a lifeless performance but I do like the overall episode because its a rare display of cool aliens and I liked the idea of the think tank.

    Padma Lakshmi was horrible.

    Steven Berkoff was a riot. I like me a bit of overacting.
