The sole non-technical Emmy nomination for any of the Star Trek spinoffs was in
TNG's final season, when the show was nominated for best drama.
For acting Emmy nominations, you have to go back to the first series, which 538
doesn't cover in this article. Per the wiki, Star Trek was nominated for 13
Emmys over the 3 seasons, with 8 of them technical Emmys. Leonard Nimoy was
nominated for best supporting actor (drama) each season, and the show was
nominated for best drama in seasons 1 and 2.
The animated series was nominated twice for Outstanding Children's Series, and
won for its second season.
Personally, I think the spinoffs were probably given short shrift as the
programs were either first-run syndication or UPN. Even today I'm hard pressed
to think of a broadcast network outside of the four that has gotten much Emmy
attention. A quick web search finds plenty of articles about the CW getting
Emmy snubbed, even with Jane the Virgin and My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend getting some

Subject: [TV orNotTV] Data analysis suggests "Mad Men" is most iconic Emmys
I was surprised that so many of the Star Trek franchise nominations
were for technical work. There was some great acting on some of those
series. I guess it's points off for understated performances or
wearing alien make up.
Actually, maybe "Saturday Night Live" is the most iconic show, just
from the number of nominations.
