Soji Asha from Star Trek: Picard

Soji Asha (played by Isa Briones who also played Soji’s twin sister Dahj as well as another android named Sutra) is one of two androids that were designed to look human. And, more impressive still, they were programmed to believe they are human. Their programming is descended from Data, a fan favorite on Star Trek: The Next Generation. While Data was unfortunately killed before the events of Star Trek: Picard, he lives on in his ‘daughters’.

Soji’s costume changes a few times throughout the show because, unlike most characters in previous Star Trek shows, she is not a Starfleet officer. Her costume when viewers first meet her, however, is very recognizable and makes for a great cosplay.

A grey jumpsuit forms the base. You can also use a grey shirt and matching pants but a jumpsuit would be easiest. Wear a black undershirt and black boots with it. Copy Soji’s hairstyle with a short wig and, as the final touch, add a necklace of two linked circles just like the one Soji and Dahj wear.

Nyota Uhura

Nyota Uhura is a character in Star Trek: The Original Series. On the Starship Enterprise, she is the translator and communications crew officer. She keeps a level head, and takes interest in alien languages. She enjoys singing while Spock accompanies on the Vulcan Lute, which entertains the crew. Noted by the symbols on her console and room decor, Uhura is proud of her African heritage. She goes on to become a lieutenant commander. Uhura was an important part of the original crew’s diversity as one of the first black characters on television equal with everyone. Additionally, the kiss between her and Captain Kirk was the first interracial kiss on television. Nichelle Nichols portrays Uhura in the original series, while Zoe Saldana portrays Uhura in the 2009 film reboots.

Ensign Ro Laren

A Bajoran with a chip on her shoulder, Ensign Ro Laren (Michelle Forbes) joins the crew of the USS Enterprise in the fifth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. She is a tough, strong woman with a scarred past and initially butts heads with the entire crew. Eventually they warm up to each other, though it takes a season or two. As the comm officer on the bridge, she wears the Starfleet Command Red uniform along with a traditional Bajoran family earrings and a distinctive red headband.

Wesley Crusher

Son of ship doctor Beverly Crusher, Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) is a brilliant, adorable, somewhat shy Acting Ensign on the starship Enterprise in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Over the course of the series he grows and matures into a confident, serious young man, attending Starfleet Academy and garnering his fair share of romantic interests. An eager beaver when it comes to scientific experiments, he tends to bite off more than he can chew, which leads to interesting events on the ship. This guide covers his Acting Ensign uniform from the earlier seasons, a colorful number with black pants.

Commander William Riker

The First Officer of the USS Enterprise under Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Commander William Riker (Jonathan Frakes) performs his duties with confidence, courage and a heap of charm. Although he has the experience and skill to captain his own ship, he chooses to stay with the Enterprise as First Officer. The rakish Riker proceeds to tour the galaxy, saving lives and sweeping women off their feet – with the occasional trombone solo. As a Starfleet officer, he wears the Command Red uniform.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard

Captain of the Sovereign-class starship the USS Enterprise, Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) helms it with a steady, wise hand and a cup of hot Earl Grey tea in the other. Level-headed, inspiring and a talented diplomat, Captain Picard has dedicated his life to his ship and his crew. Starfleet reveres him as a distinguished leader and negotiator; his crew love him as they would a father, despite a slightly brusque exterior. He wears the Starfleet Command Red uniform.

Deanna Troi

Half Betazoid and half human, counselor Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis) of Star Trek: The Next Generation uses her Betazoid empathetic abilities to serve both ship and crew of the USS Enterprise. A beautiful, kind, gentle woman with a serious sweet tooth for chocolate, she often finds herself playing peacemaker. Throughout the series she also enjoys a number of romantic interests, especially with on-again-off-again lover Commander Riker. This guide is for her earlier outfit as counselor, before she begins to wear the Starfleet uniform.

Michael Burnham

The lead protagonist on the newest installment in the Trek world, Star Trek: Discovery, human Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) served as the first officer aboard the USS Shenzhou before it was destroyed in a battle with the Klingons. Her next post lands her on the USS Discovery, a science vessel with a mysterious mission and a captain willing to do anything to achieve his goal. As a child she was raised by Sarek, the father of Spock from the original Star Trek series, and her demeanor and posture reflect her Vulcan upbringing.

Worf

In Star Trek: The Next Generation, Worf (Michael Dorn) is the no-nonsense chief of security aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. As a Klingon, his weapon of choice is a Bat’Leth axe, and his fashion accessory of choice is the ornamental baldric sash worn over his shoulder.
