Yourself in Star Trek Online?

Little challenge here for the artistic types who play STO, create a new character in the game, but instead of a random alien or anything, create one that is YOU...

create the 'avatar' as close to you as is possible using the ST:O modifications and post them here... should be fun to see what people come up with for themselves

Here's mine...

Huh. That's funny. The last Admiral I leveled up was supposed to look like me. I'll post a screen shot when I get home if I remember.

Sorry, but the settings don't allow to make an avatar as fat as RL me.

Or with a black moustache and white beard, as I currently sport. Or glasses.

Can't get to STO from work, but my main toon, Scout (shocker, right?) pretty much looks like me...

My toon named Scout (<--- see avatar) doesn't look anything like me - which is probably a good thing.

Re: Yourself in Star Trek Online?

I haven't played in a couple months. I'm totally going to do this today though. Woo.

Edit: Fun. Here we go.

Difficult because they do not have my hairstyle. This was as close as it gets.

Re: Yourself in Star Trek Online?

Haha... thanks.

Something about the face shape is a bit off. I can make a character look exactly like anyone else... but I always fail at myself.

Re: Yourself in Star Trek Online?

Just got back into STO recently, what with the 2nd Anniversary (and the free Odyssey-class ship!), the transition to Free-to-Play (which helps, since paying a monthly sub hurts my wallet), and improvements like the new Featured Episodes, the MVAM Prometheus-class*, the awesome Defiant interior set, the Duty Officer system, etc. It's gotten a lot better, and a lot Trekkier, to say the least.

Anyhoo, my primary character (not my Cardassian/Klingon characters, obviously) is meant to be me, or as close as possible using the character creator. Got pretty close, IMO, and in a funny way, I look more like my character now than I did two years ago. Gym sessions and a sharp haircut will do that to a guy...






And no, I'm not the comely Andorian with the bangs - that'd be my 1st Officer. I'm the short, bewildered blonde guy with the Lt. Cmdr. pips, looking just as uncomfortable in a uniform as I would in real life...



*got one myself - the newly-minted U.S.S. Ajax. It's a fantastic ship - makes mincemeat out of most threats, and it's fast. Lots of fun to fly - even took down a Borg flagship yesterday, which made me all kinds of proud.
