Default Star Trek Sideburns-A Thing of the Past?



In the new Star Trek film, there were only a few actors that had them. Karl Urban was one and Spock was the other. There were none on Kirk, Sulu, or Chekov. I didn't notice if Scotty had them. But Captain Pike definately didn't. Do you have them? Does it get you any attention or comments, any private nods by other Trek fans?

I agree, it's kind of hard to tell in some of these screen shots. It looks like there was a conscious effort to make it look like the actors had them by shaping their sideburns that way, whether they were trimmed that way or not.

Oh, please...those are not classic sideburns...these are bits of hair drawn down to make a point..in the series they actually used the actors sideburns to create the effect. Nimoy's were perfect. Nichole Nichols often sported really exotically long and curvy side burns...but never, ever were they just hair pulled down to make a little point...I completely hate the new sideburns. The only thing that kept me from declaring the movie horrible was that it was not just Spock who was stuck with the blasted things....

Does that mean they shouldnt have even tried side burns? Its another one of those compromises to TOS that they maybe should have avoided. Appearances and clothing styles change.
