    Quote:
    I think part of the problem with the rest of the crew is this series tries to be "realistic" about dialogue, and the result is characters have far less personality than the earlier crews did. Picard, Data, Troi, Geordi, even secondary characters like O'Brien all had distinct, colorful personalities, even if that resulted in dialogue that was hammier than people in the real world tend to use. In Discovery, only two or three people have any personality at all, and those personalities are not at all charming.


I seem to remember an interview with Louise Fletcher (Kai Winn on DS9) where she said the material allowed the actors to overact and be operatic and she liked that.
