Guinan (2366)

Guinan wearing hat

Headgear was a form of clothing worn on a person's head.

Hats and caps

A hat (or cap) was a device worn on an individual's head. Typically, a visor or brim extended from the front of the hat so as to protect a person's eyes and head from the elements. They could also be a part of casual wear or be worn with a religious background. Hats sometimes had a design on their front, such as words or an image.

Guinan wore a variety of unique hats. (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

Tom Paris wore a hat to cover the haircuts his father forced him to get every summer. (VOY: "Faces")

Types of hats

United Earth Starfleet cap 
This cap with a brim, in the style worn by baseball players, was worn by United Earth Starfleet crew in the 22nd century. Captain Jonathan Archer and Crewman Alex had such a cap with their ship's registry, NX-01, stitched on the front. (ENT: "Broken Bow") Archer, as well as Travis Mayweather and Crewman Ethan Novakovich wore these caps while exploring the first M-Class planet the crew of Enterprise surveyed. (ENT: "Strange New World") Archer and Trip Tucker wore these caps while crossing the desert terrain on the Torothan homeworld. (ENT: "Desert Crossing") Archer also wore his cap during his venture into Vulcan's Forge to help protect his eyes from the Vulcan sun. (ENT: "The Forge")
Federation Starfleet officer hat 
Uniform accessory worn by Starfleet officers, like Christopher Pike, in the 2250s, (TOS: "The Cage") Starfleet Academy recruits and instructors also wore caps in the alternate reality. (Star Trek)
Baseball cap 
This design of baseball cap was worn by the Niners baseball team consisting primarily of the Deep Space 9 senior staff. The cap featured a baseball with the horizontal design of DS9 overlayed on the right-hand side stitching. Their opponents, the Logicians - from the all-Vulcan crew of the USS T'Kumbra - wore a cap with an IDIC, the symbol of their people, on the front. (DS9: "Take Me Out to the Holosuite")
During practice sessions leading up to their game, some of the Niners wore plain caps in various colors, while Captain Sisko wore the cap of the San Francisco Giants (an interesting choice, as the San Francisco 49ers football team, which played in the same stadium as the Giants at the time, is often colloquially referred to as the "Niners") and Jake the Atlanta Braves.

Vedek Winn's hat

The Bajoran Vedek's and Kai's wore special types of hats, mostly the female ones such as Winn Adami. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)

Vedek Winn's hat was designed by Robert Blackman. He created it as an "interesting and curious shape that viewers haven't seen. It's about rhythm and other things." He also agreed that the style resembles the Sydney Opera House. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion)

Helmets

Helmets were a device made of a material much harder than that of a hat. They were generally worn strictly for protective reasons, although they could also be worn for decoration.

The helmets included with Earth-Starfleet EV suits, according to Malcolm Reed, after wearing his suit for three days, felt as if it would have fused to his skull, leading him to threaten to "find the designer of this suit make him wear it for three days." (ENT: "United")

Army helmet 
Several of the Onlies on Miri's planet wore helmets resembling those of United States Army soldiers. (TOS: "Miri")
Football helmet 
On the planet Earth, players of the sport of football wore protective helmets equipped with facemasks. One of the Onlies on Miri's planet wore a football helmet similar to those worn on Earth in the mid-20th century. (TOS: "Miri")
Romulan helmets 
Crew members aboard Romulan Birds-of-Prey during the 2260s wore helmets. Some exceptions include the ship's commanding officer and his centurion. (TOS: "Balance of Terror", "The Enterprise Incident")
Starfleet security helmet 
Introduced in the 2270s, these helmets were a part of a Starfleet Security officer's uniform, due to the sometimes hazardous nature of their work. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture; Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)
Klingon light helmets 
These helmets were donned by workers in the underground dilithium mines of Rura Penthe in the 2290s. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) They were not in evidence during dilithium mining at Rura Penthe during the 2150s. (ENT: "Judgment")
The script of Star Trek VI refers to this form of Klingon helmet simply as a "light helmet." [1] These were actually props whose layout was designed by the Oakley manufacturing company. (The Making of the Trek Films, 3rd ed., p. 128) The mining helmets were constructed by props master Greg Jein. (The Art of Star Trek, p. 267) He recalled, "The helmets were designed on a computer [at Oakley], which then carved the pattern by catalyzing liquid resin. When we got the pattern from Oakley, we could still see all the strata lines on it, so we molded it, cast up a number of copies of the helmet and added working lights and other details." (The Making of the Trek Films, 3rd ed., p. 128)
In the Universal Studios attraction Star Trek Adventure, actors playing Klingons wore ridged helmets covering their foreheads. Similar helmets were used in deleted scenes set in Rura Penthe from Star Trek, although these helmets covered the actors' noses as well as their foreheads.
Hunter helmet 
The Hunters, a species from the Gamma Quadrant, wore these high-technology helmets during their hunt for a Tosk. The helmets allowed the Hunters to see even the cloaked Tosk. (DS9: "Captive Pursuit")
