Re: Anyone Like the "Inaccurate" Book Cover art from the 1980's?

He also makes the point that the likeness of Captain Seljanus on the cover doesn't really mesh well with the description given in the book.
Indeed not. The in-joke behind the book was that Sejanus was the namesake and descendant of the historical Lucius Aelius Sejanus, a character who was played in the miniseries I, Claudius by Patrick Stewart (in a curly-haired toupee). So presumably Dvorkin wanted Sejanus and Picard to look much more alike.
