Riker: beard or no beard?

Just a fun little question. What do you prefer? Personally I like the beardy awesomeness of him.

I like the beard, he seemed more fun and playful with the beard.

I vote yes on the beard, if nothing else it helped hide the initial weight gain in his face.

Beard. In the first season he looked like he barely graduated high school.

I dunno. I think he looks good (for a wacky crab catcher).

Beard. It definitely made him look younger. Beardless Riker looked like a teenager.

I prefer the beard, especially after they changed the uniforms. It gave him a more nautical sea captain kind of vibe which I liked.

I liked the beard. Without, he just looked too much like a kid. No offense, Frakes. *runs and hides*

Yet another vote for the beard, for all the above reasons!

Beard. It is very naval looking, and gives him his air of authority.

The beard made him look mature enough to be over the other officers like Geordi & Worf
