I think they were going for the bland Voyager era actor performances. They really captured the wooden performance of Garrett Wang, and the lack of presence of the cardboard cut out that was used in place of Robert Beltran in the last three seasons.
Seriously the producers of Voyager told the actors who played humans- sans Janeway- to be bland in their performances as to not overshadow their intended break out alien character: Neelix.
(maybe I'm being too hard on them, the actors that is. I actually met Garrett Wang back in his Voyager days and hes funny talented guy. I could tell that the Voyager producers were not giving the young actor a chance to try showing his talents. And well Beltran has made his hatred of his role clear.)
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.
I forgot to comment on the facial expressions myself - that's part of our animation department. But I know the guys I agree that STO could benefit from a little more love there and I'll bring it up for their consideration.
Speaking of the facial expressions, I was under the impression that some of that got glitched with LoR. I know foundry contacts would do their angry/military/scared poses, but their faces didn't match. Don't know if this is fixed yet, but it had something to do with Tovan Kev's animation matching his VO, and it borked everything else.
