Golem in the Mirror by Ptrope Golem in the Mirror by Ptrope
Inspired by PDSmith, I decided to play around a bit with Ash-Li, my female 'Golem,' a seemingly-abandoned project by Starfleet to augment its crews with artificial humanoids.

For the Mirror Universe, I made her a little bit spicier, a little more aggressive in appearance and manner, and gave her a bit more fashionable 'do.' This is just a test image - I'm going to set a larger scene, but I wanted to tune her up a bit for the Empire ;).

EDIT: I updated the image slightly - re-rendered using indirect lighting, and I removed her 'beauty mark,' which, frankly, I didn't like, don't like in real life, and was apparently one more thing that made her look like 'Six' from Tripping the Rift, which was never my intent (in fact, I've never watched the show!); I just put it on because she would've looked strange with a Van Dyke (we call what Spock had a 'goatee,' but it really was a Van Dyke ;)).

===========================================================

Here's a shot of the Golem from the 'normal' TOS universe:

Ask and ye shal receive ;) - the torc is now available on ShareCG: [link]

I saw your Golem collar freebie on ShareCG! Could "I Still Mudd" be right around the corner??
Man, the texture on that dress is just dynamite! Very impressive.

Oshikai gets the kudos for the dress - I just adjusted the colors for the Golem Project. Man, there are a lot of nodes that get it to that point!

"Mudd's Thralls" :D.

I'm honored with the mention of my name, she looks good (evil), I can only imagine her uses in the Howard Era of the MU I've created. Thanks for sharing her necklace. I'll use it as soon as I can.

Yeah, I'm not sure I'd take that guarantee - she looks pretty conniving to me ;).

I kinda want to recreate her as a bridge officer in Star Trek: Online. Might give me something to do between homework tomorrow.

That could be kinda cool - I'd be happy to provide any graphic info you need about the Golem, like the badge design, color settings, etc. - maybe even skin texture (the only texture map I use is for the face, just so I can get the eyeshadow and the specific shading of her lips :); everything else is just color and specularity, and now sub-surface scattering, so her skin has a somewhat silicone-like texture).

STOs character creator has some limitations: For example, it is woefully lacking in hair options and colour pallet. The only hair options that part in the center? They have pigtails (and as funny as that might be it removes a bit from her appearance) So I went with a different style that is somewhat similar in effect (spiky) and went with the closest colour for uniform as I could. Also I couldn't put the terran emblem on the right side of her chest without using the TOS Terran Sports Bra. [link]

If only STO let us go into that much detail in the character creator tools, though the detail they do give us is astounding. I have pretty much everything to recreate her, short of the collar, and probably the highlights in the middle of her hair. I'm gonna wing it on boots (I have all of STO's TOS costume options for boots so if I'm wrong in one way I can change it to another... I'm a costume whore in STO XD)

Yeah, the necklace does look more like the thrall control collars from "The Gamesters of Triskellion", but I'm a smirkin' at the number.
Looking much hotter than Robert DuVall's title character in the George Lucas student film, THX-1138.

It's actually something of a hybrid - the metal collar is like the thrall collars, the ID unit is from Mudd's androids; at the time I first thought up the Golem Project, it seemed like a natural addition, and it continued the history of TOS (and Star Trek in general) re-using and often recombining props that had appeared previously (as they did with using parts of Nomad and the sphere that contained Sargon into the Romulan cloaking device ;)).

Hey ideas are like lego blocks; they're just laying around all over the place, so stack 'em any way you want.

Loving the concept of this, and love that necklace! Where did you get it or did you make it?

Made it - it was pretty simple. Just another one of those, "Hey, I need this and no one else makes one" kind of things :). And it's UV-mapped, so anynumber can be used on it. If anyone's interested, I could package it up and share it :).

PLEASE!!! I would love to have one of those collars would make a great device for interrogations, it detects a lie it zaps the hell out of the wearer.

A very interesting idea!!! It never occurred to me that the androids on Mudd's Planet?, would also be in the Mirror Universe and therefore could be incorporated into that reality's storyline!!! :)

the necklace had me thinking of the episode where kirk, uhurah and checkov were under control I think they called them Thrawls. but the jewell had one on each side of the neck.... then it dawned on me this was from "Mudd's Women".

Hmmm, that's unfortunate - have never watched the show, but I can definitely see that :(.
