ENOUGH OF ALL THIS TRIVIA!! It's time to discuss something REALLY important: Namely, what was your favorite way that Trek tried to cover up Spock's ears so that he could blend in with the natives? "Return of the Archons" is our first instance of Spock head-covering, as he dons a stylish monk's robe to blend in on Beta III: Honestly, the head-covering in this episode is a little half-assed, as Spock stops wearing the hood once he's indoors, and none of the natives ever comment on it. Disappointing. "The City on the Edge of Forever" gave us Spock in a knit cap, which was apparently all he needed to pass as a Chinese laborer: Strange how no one ever commented on Spock's upswept eyebrows, however. Honestly, I going to skip "A Piece of the Action" altogether, as Spock's fedora does absolutely nothing to disguise his ears, but who among us could resist the power of Spock in that chapeau? I sure can't! So here it is: "Patterns of Force" gives us a head-covering twofer, with Spock in both a knit cap (in what looks like the exact same knit cap as "COTEOF", frankly): And later, Spock in a Nazi stormtrooper helmet: Bonus points to the stormtrooper helmet for also hiding the tips of Spock's eyebrows. The second season finale gave us "Assignment: Earth", where Spock traded in his 1930s blue knit cap for a bulkier late 60s model: EDIT: Thanks to Push The Button for reminding me of another one from "Assignment: Earth" that I'd overlooked: Spock in a Grandpa Hat with a cool psychedelic hatband! It's groovy and dorky at the same time, yet Kirk still seems doubtful about it: And finally, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home gave us the "Bathrobe and Headband" look, which gave Spock the air of an aging hippie who'd done a little too much LDS: Again, bonus points for managing to cover up Spock's eyebrows and ears. Personally, I think they missed a bet by never giving us a Mike Nesmith-style wool hat for Spock. It would have worked beautifully in the episodes where Walter Koenig was wearing his Davy Jones wig. Think of the Trek/Monkees synergy! >sigh< What could have been... So now it's time to decide... Which one is YOUR favorite and why? Remember, folks, you can only vote for ONE! CHOOSE WISELY!!!
