Re: Why does Germany get the cool novel covers?

I wonder why they translated Once Burned as "Burned Child." Is that part of a German expression that approximates the meaning of "Once burned, twice shy?"

Yes, "Ein gebranntes Kind scheut das Feuer" (A burned child dreads the fire).

I only just noticed the drunken Xindi-Insectoid looming over Calhoun's shoulder. I'm assuming its drunk, anyway. It looks like it's about to interrupt Calhoun's story and start loudly bleating on about its own problems.
And now I wanna hear the Xindi war told from the insectoid perspective.

Re: Why does Germany get the cool novel covers?

Cross Cult has posted a cover draft for their fourth TOS novel (After the Crucible trilogy), currently slated for January (which means it should come out sometime mid 2013) .

They haven't outright said yet if it is indeed the German translation of Mudd in your Eye as 8of5 and most people commenting on it on Facebook and on CC's forum think, but I don't really see any other likely candidate where Mudd would fit as "cover model" of a novel not yet translated to German.

Is that Dennis Bailey's version of the Phase II-Enterprise (minus the nacelles)?

They've updated the cover with a different Enterprise pic.
