Oooh dude cool character indeed!

I am so thrilled with how this turned out! Absolutely gorgeous rendition of Dr. Akai...and the background is just perfect, the colors and textures and enigmatic standing stones. And the planet in the background....it all really feels alien. Thank you!

This is such a cool picture, especially considering what an interesting character this guy seems to be!

Wow... love the anatomy and build on him!

Naked may be harsh, I'd say he's... "without apparel"

Wow. This is so amazing. It's like something you'd see on the cover of HEavy Metal magazine. Awesome.

It does have that feel. I relly like that abou it.

Why couldn't the original Star Trek episodes have been like this...

Budget, I'd imagine. A costume of my character on a shoestring budget would look....awkward.

LOL - you're probably right. Well, that and the dangly bits might have been a bit too progressive for the original show!

That too, especially considering how easily prime time television audiences were squicked in the Sixties. It wouldn't be allowed on network television today. He'd have to wear his kilt, at least ;)It reminds me of the Gorn costume...really nice costume, though it had its obvious flaws, from the visible eye slits to the obvious zipper, not to mention the very slow and ponderous movements. It's do-able, if you have a forgiving audience.

True. People freaked out when Kirk kissed Uhuhru - because he was white and she was black. So a nude alien would have been over the top. These days you could just have a bunch of fluff ... Underworld, for example.
The thing is, Star Trek was about the story so everyone was willing to overlook the bad effects. Besides, the just made the Gorn out to be slow to explain it. Poor guy in that costume in the desert for filming!
Still, nude furries would probably improve the series' ratings, even if it would be relegated to SpikeTV late-night.

Agreed, the stories made the series, so a lot could be forgiven. Still love TOS the most. And yes, nude critters would have much appeal. Look at the sensation that M'ress was from The Animated Series, and she was properly attired.
on 7 April 2015 at 15:31:49 MDT
LOL - yes, good point. Although those 60's skirts didn't leave much to the imagination! Sadly, that was during the time when furry was still "cool". Or at least acceptable. Now it's been overly sexualized by the fandom and vilified by the press/public, so it's unlikely that we're going to see another character like M'ress in a mainstream media production for some time :-(
