What is Up With Gowron's Head!

Hey

Check this out:




Man I love Gowron, what a great character, over the top and those eyes! His ocular popitude has kept me on the edge of my seat for decades but I just have to ask, has anybody ever noticed that the top of his head looks kind of dirty?

Is this my twisted mind or where the makeup people pulling one over on us?

You're hardly the first person to notice that.

It's often used to prove that a Star Trek fan is a virgin if they can't identify it.

How about this female Klingon's forehead? It was either the last episode or near the last episode. Her forehead is noticeably several shades darker than her face. I've never seen this on a Klingon before, so I assumed it was a mistake:

She might just be standing partly in the spill from Gowron's key light.

No, it's definitely the make-up. You can tell when she moves (sorry I can only post an image). Just curious if anyone else noticed.

Re: What is Up With Gowron's Head!

I have season 7, so I'll have to see if I can find the scene and get a few comparative screenshots, if that's where it's from. It's possible she's wearing an appliance that was made for a darker skinned actor originally, and they didn't match her face makeup to it.

That would be my guess, Melakon. She sure does stick out like a sore thumb. Found it: "When It Rains..." S7, Ep21, 31:55 in.

Maybe she's sun sensitive.

Kahlest cringed as she walked through the pungent Gagh fart that Gowron crop dusted everybody with as they crossed the airlock. What could she say, he was the chancellor...
