We're finally back from our groundbreaking return trip to Antarctica! Although, as expected, we didn't find any direct information about Bill Shatner's toupee, we did manage to conduct several interesting experiments, which examined the thermal and insular properties of replicas of Bill Shatner's key toupee stages. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the "TJ Curly" with its extremely thick and curly TFSISR (Toupular Follicle to Square Inch of Scalp Ratio) proved to be the hands-down winner.
Deforest Kelley needs a visor, but Bill Shatner only needs his toupee to stay warm. Image sourced here.
Now, turning to our most recent poll...
...40% of voters stated that the shockingly thick (and curly) look of Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) is what first aroused your toupee suspicions. Only 10% started to suspect while watching the original Trek series, while almost a quarter if voters say late-night TV jokes, press reports and other forms of satire is what made them suspect Bill Shatner's hair wasn't as real as they had once thought. Thanks for voting!
