    This is a image from a current caption contest. Does anyone know exactly what is being reflected in Patrick Stewart's spacesuit faceplate? I figure it's a piece of production equipment, like a telepromter, or a lap top.

    Anybody know for sure?

    There's a better view here. It appears to be some sort of display on the inside of the helmet rather than a reflection. There's one of the other side of the helmet here, and you can see them in Hawk's helmet too. They look like mini LCARS displays.

    What sense does a display on the BACK of their helmets make?

    Perhaps it behaves like a HUD? I'm not sure.

    It's the newest thing. Ear controlled computers. Highly advanced.

    The helmet doesn't turn with the head, so seeing these displays would not seem to pose undue difficulty...

    OTOH, the reflections they create on the faceplate might play a role. Either the displays are readable through the reflections - or they are an annoyance that blocks Picard's vision in most lighting conditions.

    Looks like they all have the two displays.
