Learn more about Matt Highison, character artist for Star Trek Online!
My job is to turn the Awesome up to 11 on the Star Trek Online characters, creatures, and ships. With the rest of the Character team, I am building upon the amazingly robust costume creator in Champions Online, reworking it for the Star Trek universe, and adding in loads of new customization options designed especially for STO.
Heheh, I can just imagine a Dad in the backround cheering "Look out son you got a Borg behind you!"
Good interview Matt, having a person with your style and mentality behind the scenes I can't wait to see what aliens we can come up with. Please go all out for regular human features customization too, lots of different hair styles, (short, long, pony tail, spikey, done up, etc.) heights, weights, the works.
Q: Is there anything you would like to add?
A: The team working on STO is one of the most talented, intelligent, and passionate groups of people Iíve ever met. We are all such fans of the series that we are taking the care needed to infuse every bit with Trek lore. Star Trek Online is doing things Iíve never seen before in any game, and it should end up being a blast for hardcore Trek fans and casual fans alike.
Awesome Interview!!! I love what I am reading, this is why I am so wanting this game to come out.
lol Gotta love the pic! I'll be the first to admit that I have a Trek Costume, and I'm 18. (However mine is a little better quality than his) It may be a little dorky, but I don't wear it often enough to warrant total Dorkism...
