*I am currently unable to create a Eugenic's Skin due to being unable to find the DDS utilities. Until then, none of my skintones will be allowed to be uploaded anywhere modified as such. When I can get them done, I am planning on doing them myself. Thank you! ~ Puppetfish 7/22/12


Hello all!

This was a request by Mikoyo80 over on my site, SimTrek2BoldlyGo, and while I expected not to have it up until the weekend, I got so excited that I finished it early!




The Takarans are a humanoid species native to the planet Takara.

Takarans are characterized by a very unusual anatomy and physiology where their internal organs are not as distinct as those of most humanoids – their organ systems are much more evenly distributed around their bodies, resulting in Takarans having a very high resistance to injury. Takarans also have voluntary control over their own physiology down to a cellular level and can place themselves in a form of stasis resembling death.

To Starfleet medical equipment, only the rate of cellular decay could verify whether a Takaran was dead or alive – a slow rate of cellular decay was indicative of a Takaran in voluntary stasis; the rate of cellular decay would be much faster if the Takaran were truly dead – this was unknown to Doctor Beverly Crusher until 2369.

Takarans are also able to put only a part of their body in stasis at a time, enabling them to slow injury in specific areas and thereby reduce the overall effects of the injury. (TNG: "Suspicions")


All info was taken directly from here!



There's very few pictures of this guy! LOL So, aside from his face, I had pretty much creative license to make his skin look however I wanted. I think I got his face pretty close to the original, and I was quite pleased when I saw him in game! He truly looks awesome!

And if you look closely, his eye has a blue membrane that covers the very bottom part of the pupil, so I just had to create eyes that matched!

So here is a picture of what his skintone looks like, without the outfit.



Now, to avoid problems, he comes packed in Maxis clothes with Maxis hair. But when I found the outfit I've got pictured, I just knew it was perfect for him! So I didn't make him an outfit. But you can follow the following link to get it.

As a bonus, the last picture I'll show you is one of his wife and baby son!

Wow, that was quick! You already know how awesome I think it is, but I'll say it again: this skintone is absolutely brilliant!! My Trek 'hood is going to be overrun with Takarans now. Thank you!

I was just thinking I needed more alien Star Trek sims as I don't want to reuse the ones in my game too often. I like diversity, so thanks for this!

Hello Grammapat!

If you mean to be 'Eugenics friendly', no, it's not been updated. I'd rather it not be at this time. Since Sims 2 is an older game now, doesn't seem like much point in doing so.

I am very glad to hear that his skintone is still appreciated. Happy New Year!

Thanks for reply. So I guess if I downloaded I would get only the face pre-set, not that odd skin. Thanks anyway. "older game" ? yes indeed, but still played by so many!

No, it's an entire skintone, complete with the facial enhancements. Just not updated to the 'eugenics' trend that was going on for a bit, not sure if it's still going on. Please feel free to download, your Takaran's will have complete skintones.
