    Right on the money.

    He might have been a vanity thing when he was young, but who among us isn't guilty of the same thing?

    As for Gates McFadden, I assumed she wore the wig in the first season when her onscreen hair looked thicker and redder. When her hair looked more strawberry blonde and was finer in texture I figured it was her own.

    And I'm pretty sure the Nathan Fillion toupee thing is just a joke.

    If threads like this keep popping up, Kirk's hair is likely to be the villian in the next Star Trek Movie ;)

    Don't go giving them any ideas. :lol:

    But here's one: In the opening scene of next movie, the Enterprise encounters a spatial anomaly and receive strange transmissions from another Enterprise, something about an energy ribbon and deflector control. Spock devises a solution and transmits through the anomaly. The Enterprise B implements the solution from the bridge and is not damaged by the ribbon. The anomaly disappears and our heroes continue on into the opening credits ... ;)

    Talking about hair.
    From the new book about TOS Season 2, it says that GR was the one who had 'Kirk' shave off his chest hair. I always thought it was Shatner.

    It was a budget cutting measure, they used the chest hair to populate the wig. ;)

    :guffaw: Nicely Played Sir
