Default In the long run, what do you think is more important?

Their looks, or their acting?

I would say acting skills def. You cant have star trek with out good acting.
Its a rule and law in my book for star trek. It makes star trek what it is. An excellent sci fi adventure and saga that thrives. As for looks you still always will have the other crowd that goes by the whether the person is hot if then they will watch the show or movie.

Or if they resemble the characters of the show a little. I think Chris Pine is a great choice for Kirk in terms of looks, but the acting, I'll just have to see how it plays out when the movie comes out next May.

I think acting is much more important. We have to really feel that this is TREK to believe it and the interactions between the characters are of utmost importance. I will want to be able to close my eyes (of course I won't though) and believe that I am really hearing dialogue from TOS.

The better actors they are in their roles, the less their individual differences in apperance will make. Impersonations are great for SNL sketches, but they won't make a good 'reboot' feature film.

It has to be both and can be. Consider Zoe Saldana, acts like meryl streep, looks like a godess.
