Star Trek makeups: Ensign Ro Laren

The Bajoran Ensign Ro Laren (Michelle Forbes) was introduced in the fifth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and became a recurring character. Michelle Forbes was invited to crossover to become a regular on Deep Space Nine, but she declined and the character of Kira Nerys was created for the new show instead. Reportedly Ro was dropped as a character in response to Michelle’s refusal – Ro was seen only once more in ‘Pre-emptive Strike’ where she deserted to join the Maquis.

As you can see in these images the Bajoran nose design evolved.
