Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

Did Geordi take a bigger demotion than I thought? I know he gave up the rank of Captain, but didn't he just go down to commander? Or this is an error on Pocket's behalf?

Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

Seems like it is an error, since this is most likely a photo from one of the films being used

^Seems like a weird thing to screw up. Hopefully they caught it before the book went to print/goes to print..

Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

While there's nothing particularly groundbreaking or different about the cover art, I like it. Looking forward to seeing the artwork for the third book (which I'm guessing will feature Worf on the cover... I'd be really surprised if a treklit-only character like Choudhury popped up on a U.S. cover design since it rarely happens).

Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

Well with Dr. Soong, I was actually thinking of his appearance in the Season 7 episode where we met Data's "mother", and he had programmed a FAQ disc in the event that it was discovered that Data's mother wasn't human.

Really looking forward to this next batch of novels, starting w/ Brinkmanship this month. The covers aren't too bad. They're [looks at the covers], they're [looks again], they are green.

Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

Well, it's too bad that we couldn't get even one cover a year that wasn't Photoshopped or done on computer, but was an actual painted cover, kind of like how TNG covers were done in the early 90's. Plus I remember that several of those covers had the main characters plus a character or two from the story (such as Eye Of The Beholder).

You are correct:

And, as a triptych, it looks like this:

Why's Geordi staring at Picard's ear like that?

It would look a lot better if the colors lined up on the first two. Other than that I like it.

I'd have liked two figues on the third cover for balance. Cloudbury, maybe, or the science officer or someone....

David Mack has a smoother triptych on his website.

Beverly would have been the obvious choice, if they're going for an all-canon look. I'm not that impressed with these covers, but perhaps they'll look better in printed form...
