Thick, thick, thick...
The website Aveleyman.com (see here) has a very useful (to toupologists) same-sized gallery of Shatner pics throughout the ages, with numerous entries for the 60s Star Trek series. It's there that we dug up the above photo of Bill Shatner in a 1975 episode of the TV cop show The Rookies, episode title "The Hunting Ground". This thick, thick, thick toup can only be described as being of the chocolate sauce variety - as if somebody poured chocolate sauce or treacle on top of a bald head in the hope of making something resembling a realistic head of hair.
In fact, the hair in the above image is so bad, and since we don't engage in mockery at Shatner's Toupee, we feel that we have to balance it's presentation here with something entirely positive about Shats:
Bill Shatner's skills as a voice-over orator are often overlooked in favor of analysis of his often staccato ac-TING s...TYLE. But great Star Trek captains seem to need distinctive voices that convey the often tortuous life of the lonely starship captain. And we think that Bill Shatner certainly had an ability to deliver a moving voice-over. Just listen to the opening captain's log in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock - "The Enterprise feels like a house with all the children gone..." So, hats of to Shats for his v/o skills!
