So I totally get this, especially for the lead actress. But I softened some after discovering her Vulcan rooots. She felt awkward and stilted, but I realized that was her attempt at displaying the Vulcan logic/unemotional thing but not all the way. Don't think she really made it work but I became much more forgiving. Had no issues with other actors, except maybe the captain?
