for a short period of time the second sisko wore a wig to ease viewers into the change of actor.
I'm pretty sure the first Sisko got his own back at some point. Isn't that him in season six's Waltz and Far Beyond The Stars?
They brought in a lookalike for Stars, called Benny Russell. That was the only time they used an actor's real name in an episode.

All of this talk about Sisko, and I'm still amazed no one's noticed that an entirely different actor played Kirk during the TOS films. I mean, look at all that extra hair he had!

That was hair?

I thought it was a Tribble that decided to live on top of Kirk's head!

Really, each hairpiece should be uniquely named and listed in the opening credits of each film. Somewhere between Doohan and Nichols.

It looks like he used multiple hair pieces in TMP. His hair changes between the scenes at Starfleet Headquarters and subsequent scenes at the inverted Regula space station before going to Enterprise. It changes again when he changes out of his admiral uniform into a regular duty uniform.

I say it's better to be bald and in charge like Picard and Sisko, than have to wear a tribble on your head.

No argument here. I wonder how he fed that thing.

Think about Shatner as he was in the last films. Now think about him with no hair. I think you'll see where I'm going with this.

I probably would have preferred bald Janeway over the Janeway with horrible hair that we got during the first seasons of VOY.

dub, that's such terrible photoshopping!

Not really a good way to convince people on whether bald looks would work or not!

On second thought, I see shades of Detective Vic Mackey, too.
