I don't see how you come to that conclusion. Because there are some characters that are bald?

Me too, and I'm not even all that bald, just getting there (quite against my will, but still.....).

I think most of the people who argue against baldness are mostly kids under 18 who are still locked into superficial shit like looks, and don't know any better

Bald is better when it comes to Starship captains, and when it comes to other things as well.

Re: In Star Trek, is bald...better?

a lot of guys go bald. a lot of movies cast bald or balding guys as the bad guys- star trek realises that bald guys are just like other guys with not so much hair

Stewart definitely proved that you didn't have to look a certain way to be the guy running the big ship. I wasn't watching Trek when the show developed, but I can only imagine the initial reaction some long-time fans had.

The fact that Shinzon was bald goes very much against your theory.
The immeasurable fail of Shinzon outweighs the coolness of Picard, Sisko and Robau.

Well...Shinzon was a clone of Picard, so he wasn't deliberately copying, so bald is back to cool.

Just out of curiosity, are there any pictures of Shatner on the web without his
hair piece? I never really new he was bald till a few years ago. Did he wear a
rug even back during the times he was doing Star Trek? Very interesting.

Shatner is still my favorite Star Trek Captain of them all even if the rumors of him being a jerk are true. Kirk kicks ass.

Sorry guys. I did not know that the subject of Mr. Shatner's hair (or lack of it) was already discussed before in another thread.

Picard was bald. Sisko was shaved. There's a difference (just ask the hosts of PTI!)
