Re: Devil's Bargain cover and blurb
Same reason the new Trek movies are doing Kirk-Spock-McCoy, and not cross-pollinated 24th century stuff, or an original crew. That's what's familiar, that's what the audience likes.
Not that some of the other stuff isn't good, or even great, but the original sometimes resonates better.
