^Good catch. I guess the artist grabbed whatever reference was available.

Although it's not as bad as the Battlestar Galactica Colonial Vipers chasing McCoy and Arrhae on the cover of The Romulan Way, or the upside-down Galactica itself on the TNG: Ghost Ship cover.

No, that's why Harve Bennett and Nick Meyer came up with Saavik for ST II, 'cos Nimoy really, really, really meant it when he said he wasn't coming back.

I think Enterprise's T'pol counts as a female Spock clone.

^No, because T'Pol isn't half-human. She has her own distinct journey as a character.

If that's what you think happened, you ought to rewatch the show. Nothing could be further from the truth.

A lot of the numbers TOS books have something off on them. It's usually the way the characters are drawn. It usually something off about the faces.

There are so many examples I can think of, but I don't want to derail the topic more than I have. But I know what I'm talking about and I can certainly list examples. They are the very reason I quit the show.
