The New Faces, and their Backstories
The new Star Trek characters that are available immediately for all users, and which are eligible candidates for’s “The Backstory” contest, are:

  • Nurse Chapel – Nurse Chapel appeared in an episode during the first season of The Original Season (TOS) and soon after became a regular character. She served as head nurse under Chief Medical Officer Dr. Leonard McCoy on the USS Enterprise. In later films she appeared as a full-fledged doctor (and in the most recent film as a one-line off-screen cameo). She sought after a position in the Starfleet in the hopes to find her missing fiancé, Dr. Roger Korby. Despite her love for her fiancé Chapel also had an infatuation with Spock, and when she once admitted her feelings in the episode “The Naked Time” Spock confessed his inability to return her feelings.
  • Gorn – The Gorn are a race of intelligent reptilian humanoids. The Gorn captain character became one of the most popular aliens on Star Trek, appearing only in one classic episode (“Arena”) on TOS. A hissing, slow-moving but lethal beast, the Gorn captain was quite cunning and devious.
  • Mara – Mara was the Klingon wife of Captain Kang and a science officer aboard his battle cruiser. As a product of 22nd century genetic engineering, Mara was descended from Klingons affected with the augment virus created in 2154. Mara was the first appearance of a Klingon female and, although never confirmed, it is very possible that Mara was the mother of Dax, son of Kang.
  • Two Klingon crewmen – Klingons are a warrior race in the Star Trek universe. They are recurring villains in TOS, and have appeared in all five spinoff series and seven feature films. Intended to be antagonists for the crew of the Enterprise, the Klingons ended up a close ally of humanity and the United Federation of Planets in later television series.

 “After seeing how enthusiastic the Star Trek community has been about the ability to create their own animated adventures, we immediately started thinking about what we could do next to give fans more of what they want,” said Alvin Hung, Founder and CEO, GoAnimate. “Like millions of others, we loved the new Star Trek film, and were inspired to add the characters that play important roles in the backstory – and in true GoAnimate fashion – we decided to add a contest to reward the amazing creativity that we regularly see from our community. So get to work on those backstories – we can’t wait to review them!”
