Voice Overs in the new ep
 
My god....

The Cardassian Diplomat voice actor must have been told to "play a caricature of a sinister guy pretending to voice-act in an opera...that's pretending" Same with the female Vorta...these two stood out. TERRIBLE.

Overall...all of the voice acting was overdone... Tell all voice actors to tone it down.....and stop ACTING! and start acting.

Every time I watch a STO cutscene I ask myself do people or aliens from the show really act LIKE THIS? Do they gesticulate this much with their hand motions?

Don't give us voice-overs if it makes me laugh at what's going on with the story.

You haven't lived until you've seen an Orion gesticulate without using hand motions.

haha I haven't had the pleasure. During the Doomsday remastered episode there's one point where you're on the Klingon ship that you contact someone back at Starfleet...but man...hahah...the gesticulating is borderline seizure-like

I want to say that it's worse...actually it is worse.

I am of a different opinion -- ANY voice acting is better than stone-cold silence. I found it a welcome and worthy addition. Sure, the quality wasn't the best, but that's become a trademark of STO and I wasn't expecting any more.

Glad to have VOs!!

I kinda liked the way they made Caption Shon talk, his hammyness reminded me of Captain Kirk! :D

I'm of the school that if you're not going to take it to a certain credible standard, don't insult me by having some $10 an hour voice actor do some laughable dialog that's going to break my immersion...my favorite part of the new ep was the last 1/4th of it battling Jem'Hadar ships outside DS9...the part without voice dialog.

Captain Shon was probably the best of the bunch.

Everyone else was a caricature.
