Why can't S & S do a deal with the German publishers to share costs of their covers rather than pay for their own Photoshop cut and paste jobs.
S&S feels that their current cover approach is what's most likely to sell books. (If they didn't, they'd do something else instead!)
I don't know about that. I'd assume that outside of the boost the movie release will give, demand for Trek novels is relatively inelastic. Therefore a cheapish cover image will not harm sales much, in the same way as a superb (and more expensive) painted cover probably would only boost sales slightly.

Pooling resources for a shared cover would therefore make good financial sense...
