I wouldn`t mind it if it looked more like an hourglass.

The original cover of Bantam's "Death's Angel" had an hourglass on it.

Re: Couple of covers for Upcoming Trek

Yes, but with other figures as well. I'm thinking more of a grouping of stars in the shape of an hourglass, not a figure of death with one filled with sand.

^It's a moot point, because that's not the actual cover, and I'm fairly certain it doesn't even resemble the actual cover art in progress. It's just a piece of filler art for the catalog.

It does need the TARDIS flying in it, though...

It's Typhon Pact with one "o"!!!

(Erm...that's in reference to someone's typo on the first page. I somehow missed the other two )

THAT is a story I want to read, and it's a perfect match. What would the DTI think of the Doctor? we know the Doctor will think they are amateurs.

We've seen Dayton's. It's here - http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Paths_of_Disharmony - among other places.
Good to see Shar on a cover again - it's been too long. Although it's weird to see him next to Picard. Just another way of making me want to buy all the TP books, damn you all to hell.

As for STF, why is Tuvok in a different uniform?
He's in the current uniform, like he was on the The Red King cover.
Would be nicer if they hadn't flipped the image of Tuvok so that his face looks all wonky and bulging in the wrong places. They did the same thing with Picard on Mere Mortals.

Man, that photoshopped stuff makes me long for the days of a good painted cover.
