I prefer the Van dyke look on Riker. It gives him the air of authority.

Beard.

Without it, he looks like the "Ensign Babyface" he once said people called him.

Ensign Baby Face himself, Jonathan Frakes gained weight throughout the series and movies?? No way! I dig the beard.

Jonathan Frakes should've been born with the beard of awesome. In fact, it should be permanent; instant regrowth.

He just looks weird when shaved.

Bearded. It's interesting to wonder what Riker would look like with a goatee, though.

Re: Riker: beard or no beard?

We saw that when he (Tom Riker) appeared in DS9

Oh, and Beard! At least up until Insurrection - I thought he actually looked better without it by that point (ie, more "well groomed")

Re: Riker: beard or no beard?

Back in the old days when StarTrek.com had a RP room called the Holosuite, a buddy of mine played Riker and so entrenched was the beard on the group consciousness, the immediate nickname was The Bearded Wonder or just plain ol' Beardy.
