Bunch of new covers, plus a blurb for That Which Divides
 
The Simon and Schuster online catalogue has been updated with a bunch of new covers. They're all marked not final:

The Xondaii system—located in an area of non-aligned space near Federation and Romulan territory—is home to a unique stellar phenomenon: a spatial rift which opens every 2.7 Earth years, remains open for a period of approximately twenty-one Earth days, and allows access to a small planetoid that orbits in proximity to the system’s fourth planet. During this brief window, the people of Xondaii undertake a massive interplanetary operation: mineral ore is ferried from the mining operation while supplies, crew replacements, and so on are transported from the planet. Also, communications with the mining colony on the planetoid are possible only when the rift is open.

Science vessel U.S.S. Robert Ballard is severely damaged during its mission to the system, and the U.S.S. Enterprise is dispatched to investigate and render assistance. But Kirk, Spock, and Sulu also collect the data about the rift, and the evidence they’ve gathered regarding its artificial nature is compelling. How has this not been discovered by anyone from Xondaii, especially when considering the extensive mining operations that have been in place for decades? And what can prevent enemies of the Federation from exploiting this newfound power?

While I'm sure it's not final at all, I really like that impressionistic Rings of Time cover!

I don't - it reminds me of the old copyright-dodging "Best Of Trek" covers...

The Storming Heaven and Forgotten History ones are great though.

Beautiful covers all-around.

Those all look great - although it looks a lot like someone has left some margin indicators on the Forgotten History cover. And the cover of Storming Heaven suggests things are not going to end well for Starbase 47-Vanguard...

Okay, even though it's a tentative cover, it looks like Forgotten History is being billed as a DTI book after all, rather than a TOS book. Maybe that'll change, I dunno. But I like the graphical continuity of using the Shepherd Gate Clock face again, unifying it with the WTC cover. Heck, I like the design, period. It works well for the book. Anyway, the blurb is the one for Watching the Clock and is definitely not right.

Thanks for posting those. I hadn't seen the RINGS cover yet!

(Just got the copyedited ms. in the other day. I know what I'm doing this week.)

I love the old BoT covers. This one would have been great if it were hand drawn in true BoT style, and not CG. As it is, it kinda reminds me of the faux-DS9 on the cover of the "Far Beyond the Stars" novelization.

The Vanguard and DTI covers are good.

Not feeling them. The covers, not the books. Look forward to the books.

Nice covers..

That's a lot of Tholian ships storming heaven. Is this a red herring or is Vanguard going to be Tholarized?

Yupyup, 4 books that are on the MUST BUY list. :D Good looking covers, IMO.

I love 'em all. Of course, I've always been a fan of ship-centric covers.

I really like all four of those covers. Like Christopher, I like that they've kept the clock face for the DTI books. I always love it when series use a consistent style for it's covers.

I'm really a fan of all four of these. Really great stuff.

I especially like the That Which Divides cover. Simple, but beautifully colored and mysterious. Nicely done.

(Sidenote: between Paths Of Disharmony, novellas in Declassified, Vanguard 7, and That Which Divides, Wardilmore sure have been busy lately, eh?)

It is the final book of the series and it's written by David Mack, so I expect there to be more than a few deaths.

Mack's blood lust is unquenchable. :evil:

Not that there is anything wrong with that.
