Re: First pic of Christine Vale?

^Most IDW comics have been incompatible with the novel continuity, and I don't see why Hive should be any different. Heck, there isn't even a single IDW continuity; mostly the things they do are standalones, aside from the interconnected John Byrne stuff and the Abramsverse stuff.

Although I did make sure that the crew with Kang in the first framing sequence of Alien Spotlight: Klingons matched the ones we saw in the "Day of the Dove" issue of Blood Will Tell.

(And I used crew members from Blood Will Tell in "The Unhappy Ones" in Seven Deadly Sins.)

Pretty cool. Not quite what I imagined for vale. In my mind she was a bit more... Ezri-ish.

Weird question, that ultimately doesn't matter, but I'm curious nonetheless: Is there any wibbley-wobbly, timey-wimey way to rationalize Hive in a Pre- or Post-Destiny setting? (Heck, maybe even Peri-?) or is it so off the line that I can't be reconciled? I'm just curious if I should slot in the Hive TPB to my Post-Nemesis reading list or just give it a whirl when it arrives regardless of where I'm at.
I recall Christopher suggesting that it might be one of the alternate timelines where the the events of Before Dishonor and Destiny never happened and so the Borg eventually took over the galaxy he mentioned in Watching the Clock (I think that would cover Alien Spotlight: Borg too), although IIRC that was before the first issue was even released so the differences may be such that only an out-of-universe alternate continuity is the reasonable answer. And I have yet to read it, so...

Wait! Do IDWs new comics share the same continuity as the current novels?

Edit: Never mind. I didn't see Christopher's reply up above.

This shot of Vale reminds me of Milla Jovovitch for some reason...

The artwork is awful. If I didn't know that was supposed to be Troi, I would never have known. Riker's eyes and mouth just look wrong.
