Lieutenant M'Ress, voiced by Majel Barrett, was a recurring character on Star Trek: The Animated Series which aired on NBC from 1973 to 1974. The character "M'Ress" was a female Starfleet officer assigned to the engineering section of the "USS Enterprise" under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. She also occasionally assumes the role of relief communications officer. M'Ress was Caitian: a felinoid race with long, thick orange fur and yellow eyes. She spoke softly and has a cat-like purring quality to her voice. "M'Ress" was depicted to not wear shoes and had four digits on each paw and a cat-like tail that would often get caught and pinched as the doors on the "Enterprise" automatically closed behind her.
I took a Trials and Tribble-ations Dax, sculpted the face and hair, clipped the fingers and added a helm of the claw tail. I airbrushed everything with matte vinylic paint and them with brilliant vinylic varnish.
