Star Wars comes to Star Trek Online thanks to some creative use of the character builder

Sometimes, we have to thank those who have too much free time on their hands, especially when it turns out fun things for others to take advantage of. Take, for example, the Star Trek Online players who have taken the time to carefully recreate a number of Star Wars characters using the game’s character creation tools.

A Reddit account by the name of stocostumes has shared several updated Star Wars character creations using STO’s tools. The lineup covers all nine films, with character designs for all of the major players, from Ben Kenobi to Kylo Ren to Rey and Luke. There’s even a fantastic Imgur gallery for players to get a peek at these seriously impressive looks.

It’s not just show and tell, however; stocostumes has even provided a Google Drive download link to let players dress themselves up as these Star Wars characters, along with characters from the Star Trek canon and other IPs. The player has even provided installation instructions for others to follow.

Yes, STO has a really great character creator with a lot of options. If you pick generic Alien as your race you really can make a lot of crazy different things and looks. It’s why I would always try to pick up Alien Officers in the game, so I could make them all look like my own brand of different looking Aliens.

For a game that came out in 2010 they did a pretty decent job in their character creator.

One thing I’m sad about though, despite the crazy different number of looks options the game has overall, the Caitian and Ferasan hair selections are terribly sparse and minuscule (little tufts of hair basically sticking out). Maybe they feel not enough people play them to go back in and ever do anything about it.

Actually, hair could be re-worked for a lot of races, it’s not up to snuff with the rest of the options. But the feline races especially are lacking in that area.

Mouse should send a C&D after all that’s what Marvel & DC would do.

Many Vulcans died to bring us this information…

if you combined STO with SWTOR you’d have a pretty special game

Pretty sure Star Wars came to Star Trek 11 years ago.

Love me some good in-game cosplay, and STO does a pretty great job of it. Space Barbie continues to be excellent and creative players continue to impress with their work, yay!

Not just Star Wars either. I’ve seen characters from Battlestar Galatica (a couple really good Cylons); various horoor films; and other franchises.

If there’s one thing Cryptic does well, its character creators with a lot of options.
