The synopsis of "Allegiance" on StarTrek.com list Mitena Haro as a Algolian. I know that site has been wrong in the past, but I found it interesting. It would account for the hair. Jaf 13:17, 26 Jun 2005 (UTC)Jaf
- Most Bolians are seen to be bald, including women and children. Mitena was shown with greyish hair. She is one of two Bolian women seen with hair, including an extra sitting in Ten Forward in episode "Ménage à Troi". The fact that this particular Bolian is fake does not explain away her hair, as it is assumed that Picard would know whether or not the well established Bolian race has hair. Popular fan theories regarding Bolian hair include the possiblity that Human-Bolian hybrids may have hair, and that it may simply be fashionable among some Bolians to wear wigs. This latter theory is bolstered by the Deep Space 9 episode "The Muse", in which Jake Sisko sees a Bolian wearing an obvious toupee on the promenade deck. This theory might go a long way toward explaining the career choice of Mr. Mot, the USS Enterprise-D's Bolian barber. The simplest explanation, however, is the fact that she was the first female Bolian to appear on Star Trek.
One thing, she wasn't the only Bolian with hair and really, to state that all Bolians are bald and justifying that those with hair are wearing wigs is all speculation. --Alan del Beccio 00:27, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
- Well, first of all, the text you removed points out that at least one other Bolian was shown with hair, and it says "Most Bolians are seen to be bald", which is a true statement. I don't have an exact count, but I would guesstimate that we have seen between 20 to 30 Bolians all told, and only two of them had hair, (and one of whom was a barely seen extra). I think this is werthy of mention somewhere. 188.8.131.52 12:36, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
Removed uncertainty Edit
I've removed the following statement, as we don't list uncertainties: "It was unclear in the episode if the aliens had copied a real Mitena Haro, or if it was an entirely fictional identity." --Defiant (talk) 15:47, January 30, 2017 (UTC)
