Star Trek Online’s tale of two Leetas

If Star Trek has taught us anything, it’s that midriffs and goatees signify that you’re from an evil parallel universe — and that more of Chase Masterson is never a bad thing.

The popular Deep Space Nine actress is returning to reprise her role as Leeta in Star Trek Online. She’s also returning to reprise her role as Admiral Leeta of the Terran Empire, because if you’re going to get one of the Trek actors to come back, you might as well get a two-for-one deal on delivery. In a new dev diary, Cryptic talks about the rigorous scientific process that it used to craft models of Masterson for the game.

“The updated version of Chase Masterson as Leeta began with reference gathering using a special tool known as ‘Google,'” the studio said. “Starting with images of her Deep Space Nine outfits, we pared down the most useful images into a basic digital reference board.”

Those of you aspiring to be game developers, take note: part of the job description apparently includes surfing the web for pictures of gorgeous people. There’s a whole college course devoted to it, or so we’ve heard.

Greaterdivinity Leilonii You can actually get her mirror universe outfit in game. It’s in the lobi store for 200 lobi if I remember. I think you might be able to buy one on the exchange, though it would be expensive. It had a whole bunch of bugs when it first came out but I think they got them all fixed up now.

When is the TOS era stuff coming? I might finally reinstall this after years to check it out. TOS era ships, need them all for nostalgia.

No offense, but ‘returning’ should be ‘returned’ since she’s been in the game for months now.

Leilonii Greaterdivinity No, the other one. That’s what she wore in the alternate universe, right? I have vague recollections of those episodes, wasn’t much of a fan of that storyline : /

Greaterdivinity That green bodysuit? She looks like she has pregnancy boobs – where they’re just so big people don’t know what to do with them because they just can’t rein them in no matter how hard they try.

I like the one on the right a lot better. A good hairdo can do so much for MMO characters.

Always really disliked how her character was written, but that alternate reality outfit. Do want.
