Bakula apparently owed rather a lot to Paramount president Kerry McCluggage, one of many males liable for creating the TV community UPN (United Paramount Community) and who oversaw the debuts of “Star Trek: Deep Area 9” and “Star Trek: Voyager.” The actor was mates with McCluggage, nevertheless it appears Bakula and the exec had totally different visions as to how Captain Archer ought to look. Conway remembers the problem within the e-book, saying:

“There’s numerous hair points on ‘Star Trek.’ I needed to reshoot the primary 5 days of the pilot due to Scott’s hair. After we began capturing, Kerry McCluggage — who was an excellent good friend of Scott’s and actually had rather a lot to do with Scott getting the present within the first place — was in New York and did not see dailies till he got here again from New York. And he hated Scott’s hair. He needed it a method, Scott needed it one other, and in some way the message did not get to us. So we had to return and reshoot all of Scott’s close-ups for the primary 5 days and alter his hair.”

Later within the sequence, when occasions had been transposed into the franchise’s notoriously evil Mirror Universe (the place the place bearded Spock got here from), audiences obtained to see the evil model of Captain Archer. Conway witnessed the actor lastly getting what he needed from the present’s stylist: 

“After which what was fascinating was once I did that second-to-last episode within the Mirror Universe in season 4, Scott’s hair went again to the way in which he needed to put on it for that episode.” 

Et voilà!
