 I haven't seen the movie, (just some of the TV shows), but that's what I
thought you meant.  My reasoning was:  The only bald guy in the 25th century
is Picard, therefore another one must be a clone of him.  (I'm wondering if
the premise of that is true, since IIRC Reg Barclay is going bald, and he's
not the only one.)
