Although, I have a sneaky suspision that by the end of this trilogy, the E-E may have a new captain. With some of the talk in other novels about Picard feeling he is in a different place in his life then he thought he would be (husband, father), I can't help but wonder if he'll stay on much longer.
Dare I say it? Captain Data! (so far, TrekLit has not counteracted Countdown)
If Picard retires, he could still be part of the series without being captain. On the other hand, Vulcan isn't the most exciting place in the galaxy...
If Worf becomes captain, Geordi would finally make it back to command track. By the way, why is he a mere Lieutenant Commander on the cover?
If Data returns, he would probably become first officer and a full Commander, the next logical step on his way to E-E captaincy in 2387.
Again this is made on the assumption that David Mack would resurrect a character when he is known to do just the opposite, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for Data to come back at least in this trilogy.
Or maybe he'll resurrect a character because he's known to do just the opposite.

I personally don't support resurrecting Data, but don't assume an author will always do the same thing in every book they write.

Doubtful. At most he won't kill someone this time, besides his previous use of death leads me to believe he respects it enough not to contribute to the comic booky invalidation of it a resurrection would bring.

I personally don't support resurrecting Data, but don't assume an author will always do the same thing in every book they write.
True but it still doesn't mean he's going to resurrect anybody, especially since whenever a dead or thought dead character comes back they usually do something that implies this is going to happen and no a cover with Data's dead father NOT HIM doesn't imply he's coming back.

^You're expecting the world to be a lot more simplistic and predictable than it usually is.

Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

I don't necessarily need Data back, but I'd like to at least see the introduction of another Soong type android. It could be fun to watch the character evolve.

So the Romulan praetor is getting a sex-change at some point?

Honestly I would perfer if the books ignored Countdown, especially seeing as the movie didn't seemed to line up with it that well.

Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

I, myself, miss data quite a bit. He's absence is extremely felt in the TNG post-nemesis books. A side note on Worf; i thought it was established in DS9 that Worf would never be able to command a starship. In the episode "Change of Heart" he chose to save Jadzia's life over completion of the mission. Didn't sisko say he'd make sure Worf could never command a ship? It's been forever since i saw that one, so i'm not sure if i'm remembering accurately.

It's forever since it happened and Worf has had several career changes since then. The Borg also decimated a lot of Starfleet's finest in the interim.

No, he didn't. What he said was, "this will go into your service record, and to be completely honest, you probably won't be offered a command on your own after this." He was offering his opinion on how he thought other people were likely to react. It wasn't like the decision was actually his. And he only said "probably."

Well, there are three years to go until Countdown's timeframe, and Praetor of the Romulan Empire is not exactly the sort of job that ensures a healthly lifespan.

Right. Hiren, Shinzon and Donatra all died (at least in part) due to their office. Maybe Kamemor retires at some point, after a particular nasty Typhon Pact struggle? Who knows.

Three years are plenty of time to revolutionize the universe again.

On a sidenote, I'd rather see Geordi's uniform and combadge from VOY "Timeless" as the next uniform design.

Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

I just thought of something what if David Mack decides to do something major that might freak the fanbase out in a different way, like say something similar to the cliffhanger of Plagues of Night?
