Re: What Not To Wear--Cardassian Edition

Going on a limb here... They're soldiers, garb worn by soldiers (more often than not) is worn for protecton, for armor.

So maybe their "spoon heads" are a especailly vulnerable spot in their foreheads? Maybe there's no skull-bone behind it and it's an easy entry point to their brain. So those "helmets" are designed to protect their spoon-head weakness.

They took them off later on the enterprise because they were at no risk there. They never wore them because...

Ummm...

Errrr....

Oh!

Really cool, innovative, and more fashionable and less visilbe surgery to place a plate behind their spoon.
