Who is the worst actor to appear in Star Trek history?
Do guest actors count, or are we talking strictly series regulars?
Garrett Wang or Robert Beltran - it's a toss up
I am not a big fan of Subcommander Thei (and his dialogue delievery) from the episode The Neutral Zone.
That extra who fell asleep after his scene was over and he was supposed to be dead. Leonard Nimoy wrote in I Am Spock that his snoring perplexed the sound engineers, who had no idea what might be causing such a peculiar noise...
Victor Lundin - Klingon Lieutenant from "Errand of Mercy" See at the 10:00 mark:
Robert Beltran. I think hes probably not that bad, but he just wasnt trying.
Chakotay's mouth said 'Borg cube closing fast', but Chakotay's eyes said 'Wheres my paycheck?'
jolene blalock for regulars
My vote would go to Anthony Montgomery for a series regular.
That's hard- there were so many. I wouldn't even try to recall the guests or background actors who sucked.
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.
Shatner was aweful at times, surprisingly awesome other times.
Oh, I could look it up, but I'm recovering from vertigo so I won't. But Captain Klang or whatever he was called in Star Trek TFF. He was pretty bad.
OH WAIT! The super hot Romulan babe at the beginning of TFF... She was the worst. I still cringe everytime I hear her voice in that movie. Smokin' hot though. Hottest Romulan ever.
I think I'm going to have a seizure every time I hear her voice. Like Kramer from Seinfeld when he hears Mary Hart.
The team of scientists at the start of "Home Soil", especially the woman who explains how terraforming works. She sounds like she's a fifth grader in a school play.
From some of what he's said, he was actually thinking 'How obviously disinterested do I have to be before they'll sack me?' He'd asked for a better role, and then asked to leave, but they just held him to his contract and offered more money, so at one point he set out to get himself sacked. (According to his version at cons, that is).
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.
the guy in the films that was david
I have nothing against him, but Robert Beltran. So wooden.
