I didn't really, as Picard's body is wrong (and no combadge) and there is clearly a smaller Enterprise-E nacelle in the background.
Not to mention both Picard's and Worf's rank pips being on the wrong side of their collars. That effort looked pretty sloppy to me, personally.
True, details were wrong. So I guess I rather like the idea behind the cover: it was made to look like a photoshooting rather a generic image of a starship.

Mmh. Pretty uninspiring, isn't it? As much as the latest Voyager-covers, I really found them lacking feeling and message. I loved TNG's "Losing the Peace".

I'll grant you the pips but Picard has a combadge on my copy.

"Losing the Peace": I didn't really, as Picard's body is wrong (and no combadge)...
Ummm, I'm not anywhere near my copy to check, but wasn't the combadge added to the final cover?

The combadge is there (plus it's on the spine as well, since the spine just used a cropped version of the cover)...although I can't see the rank pips, but the artist may not have put them in, since on both Worf and Picard that area is heavily shadowed.

The author designed the cover art as well? I never knew, I assumed they got someone else, normally a graphic artist to do such things.

If you're unsatisfied with the cover of Losing the Peace, treat yourself with a copy of Den Frieden verlieren. The German translation has a new but similarly inspired cover.
