Most fans have probably never seen Patrick Stewart with a full head of hair. He's been bald since he entered the public eye as "Star Trek: The Next Generation's" Captain Jean-Luc Picard - but that almost wasn't the case. 

That's right - Captain Picard nearly had a full head of hair, and the make up test photo seen here shows how Patrick Stewart might have looked as a well-coiffed Starfleet Captain.

So there you have it - Patrick Stewart looking very different from the man we've known as Picard, Professor X, and more.
