if you don't mind me posting another, here's Torvig as I envision him:

Interesting, but a little too Borgish. Why have an eyepiece on only one eye? If it's worth enhancing one, why leave the other one deprived? And surely advanced technology should be able to integrate any ocular enhancements into the eyeball itself without being a big chunky piece on the outside. (In other words, I'm not a fan of the Borg's design.)

Geoff - how would you feel about uploading these to Memory Beta to serve as representative images for the character bios?
I've been having the same thought, but I wasn't sure if something like this would be ok.
Well, I would go and do it myself, except that I don't know how.

the great thing about books is that everything is in our imagination and it can look however we want it to
the different ways we see the characters, for instance
Pretty awesome. That's about how I had him pictured too.

Sort of looks like what I envisioned him to look like too but I have to agree with some he does look kind of Borgish.

That's extremely different from the sketch Marco Palmieri did for me, and it doesn't really match the description in the books. Marco described Cethente's shape to me as resembling the Cardassian emblem, but the sketch he drew is more rounded than that, with kind of an apple-core quality to it.

I've been planning to do my own drawing of Cethente (not Celenthe) based on Marco's sketch. I really should get around to that.

That's pretty cool. I can't wait to see Chris's version, I'm really enjoying getting to see the different interpretations of the characters.

Geoff, just thought I'd say how great these pictures are.

Backstep, that image of Torvig is pretty much how I imagined him, alhough I pictured him having a kind of goggle arrangment across his eyes.

Christopher, these are Geoff's and other peoples intereprtations, they may not track with what you want them to look like, but as they are fictional creations and many are species not seen before, there will be differnces between the way you think they look , and say Geoff and Backstep!

Sure, I'm just saying there are some significant differences in detail from how Cethente was actually described in the books themselves. For instance, its lower module was described as diamond-shaped, and the legs were said to emerge from the narrowest point of its trunk.

Okay, I've spent all morning putting together a drawing of Cethente based on Marco's rough sketch (Marco Palmieri was the Titan editor from the beginning through Over a Torrent Sea, if anyone doesn't know). Unfortunately, my scanner is broken, so I had to make do by taking a digital photo and doing what I could to enhance and de-blur it. So here's a low-quality image of my interpretation of Marco Palmieri's interpretation of Dr. Se'al Cethente Qas:


Try to imagine it with a pearlescent, silvery sheen. The sensory nodules are like clear, dark cabochon gems. I should probably have filled them in darker, but I only had so much time to spare for this. The leg joints are meant to be kind of a ball-and-socket arrangement, but it doesn't come through on this resolution (and barely would even at full resolution).

would such a species even wear a uniform? would they wear a sash or band with a communicator/rank/color etc? would they have specialized equipment for use by non-humanoid hands?

Re: Star Trek: TITAN: Animated Series

Interesting how both Geoff and Chris have a close concept on the legs through. I think they both are good no matter what.
