Yeah, the actors, especially the second generation who grew up with TOS and the films, were some of the most outspoken when it came to how things were supposed to work in Trek. Not so much in TNG, but by the time VOY and ENT came around.
I understand much the same thing is happening on Nu-Who these days, since all the new Doctors grew up fans of the classic series. It's given them a bit more pull with the studio as to where the character goes, such as Smith convincing them to dump a "Jack Sparrow" style outfit for Chinny in exchange for the tweed and bow tie.
