# He's supposed to be a Pau'an
who are supposed to look like :this:.

But they hired a short dumpy guy and stuck a generic bald wig on him, glued some earphones on and made a start on the makeup, but then said fuck it.

Maybe casting Hayden Christensen (6'0') in David Prowse's (6'6') role of Darth Vader meant they had to cast short people for all the other roles. And maybe the expense of Ewan McGregor meant they had to cut the costume budget.

'Worst Star Trek ever' doesn't begin to describe just how eye gaugingly terrible those shows are.
