Re: What's with all the sideburn diversity these days?

I approve very much of those grey military uniforms, they look sharp and delicious in them. It's just not a hair cut I'm partial to on anyone and I think it did him no favours. As opposed to you J.Allen who of course would do him plenty of favours.

I'm not fighting you for him, NuSpock is my #1 Trek male.

(Soval will get over it eventually..)

And speaking of hair who noticed that McCoy had a terrible dorky haircut in this one?

It was like a bowl cut! And the sides were kind of shaved.. it made him look older, much less handsome and like a dork.
And while I agree with you a tiny bit I wouldn't kick him out of bed.

(As a newbie I hope that comments not too saucy)

I would have amazing space sex with McCoy, right now, on the floor, in full view of an audience, and it wouldn't phase me one iota.

Trust me, you're not being too saucy.

Used to be everybody had the standard starfleet sideburns, and now you have Pike practically looking like Jerry Reed in Smokey and the Bandit, Kirk with square ones, and holdouts like Spock and Khan rocking the original for the most part. Makes me think that Starfleet is a little softer in the new timeline.
Starfleet gives their newest ship to a cadet and you think the sideburns are chief indication of a softer Starfleet?

But carry on! Please!

If Pike had shaved properly, don't you think he would have thought a little more about doing just that?

NuSpock was mine too, going into STID. Coming out, I am now a teeny bit obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch. What is it about those gangly pasty Brits? Oh yeeesh.

Fun fact: the US Navy actually forbids pointed sideburns. The exact wording in the rule book is something like "this is the US Navy, not Starfleet."

Re: What's with all the sideburn diversity these days?

If Pike were in the next movie, he'd probably upgrade to muttonchops. His sideburns really looked bad in this one.

Was it really that bad? Maybe he didn't shave it off because he knew his role won't be in the movie for too long...

Pike's sideburns really are distracting. I can't even remember when him and Kirk were talking about in that bar scene since my attention was fixated on those sideburns.

Re: What's with all the sideburn diversity these days?

I remember noticing Kirks sideburns at one point. Spock's looked lovely.
I went and googled Pike's because I couldn't conjure up an image of him with mutton chops. Haha I think he looked nicely greyed! Considering he's older than the others, he doesn't need to be so clean shaven.

I liked the side-burn stylings of all the characters who sported them.

A nice little nod to past series' gone by...
