I didn't mean to annoy anyone, but that one scene in particular, where Spock is in front of the council just seemed like a very important moment in his life/career. He is typically a guy who shaves, right? I'm not a guy so I don't know all the ins and outs of facial hair etiquette, but in that moment the facial hair distracted me. Please! I meant no harm!!
And by the way, who said anything about elves?
It wasn't that he hadn't shaved. He's just one of those guys who has a permanent 5 o'clock shadow. It's more visible in some lighting (especially florescent, at least in my case) than others. IDK, maybe they use make-up to hide it in some other scenes, or the lighting on the bridge doesnt show it so much.
