German Covers for Typhon Pact
 
The folks @ TrekWeb have posted the German covers for the Typhon Pact novels. Very nice. :drool:

I can't post pics from my phone but there is the link:

Weird -- while Nullsummenspiel is a literal translation of Zero Sum Game, the others have just taken one word from each title -- Feuer (Fire) for Seize the Fire, Bestien (Beasts) for Rough Beasts of Empire, and Zweitracht (Disharmony) for Paths of Disharmony.

Hmmm, wonder why. I do love the covers though.

Perhaps the literal Translations would have been too long to look good on the Cover:
Das Feuer ergreifen
Wilde Bestien des Imperiums
Pfade der Zwietracht

Especially the third sounds a bit strange in German, more like a Horror-B-Movie title. And of the course, lesser text means you can enjoy more of that beautiful background-picture. :cool:

Heh, I think the third is the only one that sounds appealing and the first two sound rather strange.

Wow, those look great. I prefer them much more than the US versions.

I like how the artists for Paths of Disharmony moved Shar's antennae forward to reflect their placement on the Andorians from Enterprise, as opposed to in the back of the head as they were in the original version of that image on Demons of Air and Darkness's cover.

Weird that Sisko isn't on the Rough Beasts of Empire cover.

One thing I missed is the uniforms for Dax & Bashir are the wrong color. I know - picky, picky.

Who is the small kid with dreads and what appears to be a penis coming out of her head suppose to be?

That's not a small kid, it's Shar, the Andorian science officer who was a featured character in the DS9 Relaunch and reappeared in Paths of Disharmony.

Already fixed (or maybe the tetraptych just had an old version?):

Fear not, they've updated the Zero Sum Game one again, with a new portrait of Ezri, and corrected collars:
