Producer Ordered Voyager's Cast: "Talk Like Robots" [News]

Ever wonder why the acting was so bad on Star Trek: Voyager? One reason can be placed squarely on the shoulders of the producers. Garrett Wang, who played Ensign Kim on the show, explained that producer Rick Berman told the human cast to act less human.

"Berman informed us that he expected all actors portraying human roles to follow his decree. He told us that we were to underplay our human characters. He wanted our line delivery to be as military — and subsequently devoid of emotion — as possible, since this, in his opinion, was the only way to make the aliens look real."
You know another way to make aliens look real? Make more realistic-looking aliens.

Did Berman's decree help or hurt Star Trek: Voyager?
