Animal Crossing Players Customize Characters to Look Like Star Trek: The Next Generation

One group of Animal Crossing players customize their characters to look like four iconic members of the cast from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The Animal Crossing series has always allowed players to customize their home, their surroundings, and even other villagers to an extent, but Animal Crossing: New Horizon pushes the limits. The latest installment in the series gives players more options than ever before, which has led to a number of fans recreating beloved characters and properties within the game. Now, a group of Animal Crossing: New Horizons players have put their heads together and recreated some of the most iconic characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation.


Star Trek: The Next Generation features a number of the most memorable characters in the franchise, including several that have gone on to significantly affect pop culture for the last several decades. With this in mind, it may be easy to see why a group of Animal Crossing players would want to run around the beach in full Star Fleet uniform.

Redditor gamingdawn shared a screenshot that appears to feature four Animal Crossing player characters hanging out on the beach. One with very pale skin and short black hair appears to be dressed as Lieutenant Commander Data, while a second character with a bald head and a cute smile resembles Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The other two characters seem to be dressed as Deanna Troi, the ship’s counselor, and Dr. Beverly Crusher. Troi is shown apparently taking a nap under a tree while Dr. Crusher sits alertly beside a picnic basket, presumably keeping an eye out for injuries.

All four characters are shown wearing outfits inspired by the iconic jumpsuits of Star Trek. For Data and Picard, this means yellow and red sweaters striped with black over black pants. Troi and Dr. Crusher, however, are shown wearing long blue dresses with a stripe of black around the collar, despite their characters in the original show often wearing jumpsuits as well. All four characters are shown with the famous Starfleet Insignia on their collars.

As of writing, it appears that other fans are impressed by this virtual cosplay. However, a number of users questioned why Troi and Dr. Crusher’s dresses appear to show the drawn-on contours of a figure the Animal Crossing player model does not possess. According to gamingdawn, this is a reference to the outfits in Star Trek: The Next Generation being unnecessarily tight, especially Troi’s. Another user shared a reworked version of the iconic Star Trek narration stating that their mission was to explore strange new islands and go where no resident representative had gone before.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
