Question about pronunciation

Hi !
I have a question about pronunciation. When I watch television series, there are actors that I understand well and other that I hardly understand. Could you tell me something about those actor’s accents in that scene ? It´s from Star Trek : Deep Space Nine. I can understand them well, although Sisko (afro-american) speaks with more rhythm ? Dukat (the grey one) links more ? and Weyoun (the one with the funny ears) sounds different than both, but I can´t tell what makes that difference. Would you recommend their accents to language learners or would it be a “funny Star Trek accent “ at the end , because only those actors talk like that ?
