Was just poor planning when they made Nemesis. Sometimes that is what happens when you hand the reigns to writers and directors that haven't done a Star Trek story before. I'd love to see a remastered version of this movie where they replace that picture with a Picard with hair. Make it a little more in-sync with the series.

Simple explanation: Baird.

I think the explanation of losing a bet and having to shave his head would be the better one. Also, can anyone explain the difference in uniform? Are they both Academy uniforms or is one of them used for officers? That, to me, is even more confusing than the hair issue...

Well wasn't Picard assigned to a ship in "Tapestry?" So that uniform would be in line.

The one from Nemesis we've seen cadets wearing in other films.

Shaving the head would make sense, especially if he was a marathon runner. Some of the guys I know shave their heads for "Areodynamics" they say.....lol.

Do not forget, Brent Spiner was a writer for the movie.

The picture is meant to show how much young Picard looked like Shinzon (it failed...but that doesn't take away from the intent). That means Picard wasn't shaved, he just looked that way. (and, the military does a very close crop, leaving about 1/2 inch of hair {maybe a bit less} not a shave unless the kid askes for a smooth scalp)

Exactly Eliza, nobody had probably ever obsessed over a movie or tv show before until Star Trek came about.

It was probably the Beta Max/VCR that led to these "canon fodder" (sorry for the ba pun) debates.

You know they have people that work with continuity on every single movie that makes sure there are no watches or odd jewerly in scenes that have issue with the arriaval of such things. Making it obvious that someone isn't doing there job...and when someone doesn't do there job and I think it's time for a firing.

They did get fired... It just took a few years to get rid of "them".
