    In Star Trek 3, his hair should look just like cooleddie's avatar. No explanation should be given.

    Or maybe only evil Vulcans are capable of growing facial hair?

    Tuvok was seen shaving in Year of Hell, if I remember correctly.

    I'm not convinced as I don't think "Year of Hell" really happened.
    It was another VOY episode where they cheated by using time travel.

    If Kirk had 17 temporal violations, I wondered how many Janeway had?

    How does time travel change anything about the idea that Vulcans need to shave?
    Even if Year of Hell didn't happen, Tuvok still needed to shave.

    Technically, I don't think he needed to shave. I didn't even see any stubble! Maybe he was exfoliating his face...with a razor.

    Or maybe he was just mirror Tuvok!

    Exactly, there didn't seem to be any facial hair. Maybe Vulcans just like to run a blade across their face.

    And even if he were shaving, why was he using a cutthroat blade anyway?

    Spock sported some pretty heavy 5 o'clock shadow in TOS. Not to mention a hairy chest. ;)

    Also, T'Pring was clearly supposed to be Spock's beard.

    Having just seen the "Mr. Spock, Mr. Spock" feature I can confirm that it's Nimoy's own hair in Into Darkness, which actually looks much greyer than in the movie.

    Nimoy's reaction when he learns who the baddie is is pretty cool, as is learning how the Spock/Spock exchange ends...
    SPOCK PRIME: He will not hesitate to kill every single one of you.

    SPOCK: Did you defeat him?

    SPOCK PRIME: At great cost, yes.

    SPOCK: How?

    SPOCK PRIME: I took a hammer...

    :lol::rommie:

    Surprising! I for one stand corrected.

    I will say though, thank goodness Spock was only seen front on in STID. Look at the profile shots of him in the make-up chair...those ears are huuuuge! :D

    Ears never stop growing, and Spock's, like, 160. I shudder to think what they'll look like when he's 250:p
