Re: Coming July 2013: STAR TREK ENTERPRISE — RISE OF THE FEDERATION

The cover is out now: http://www.thetrekcollective.com/201...f-futures.html

Pretty uninspired if you ask me. Would have liked something with more going on than a portrait shot for the cover of the start of a series called Rise of the Federation.

To be honest, that's pretty much what I was expecting the cover to be like.

Yup - that seems to be what Trek covers look like these days...

Uh, I don't really like that cover. Archer looks like his dog just died.

Very dissapoiting cover, but then again, we don't buy TrekLit for the covers, but for the words.

Real disappointing.

Great way to snare readers who may not otherwise pick up a Trek book. Sad Archer portrait. Think Pocket needs someone new to commission the covers for these books.

I would have prefer something more overtly patriotically Federation-y, but it's not awful. Bakula's image may well draw some sales.

^We wanted to put a Federation logo in the background, but they couldn't find good reference for the 2161-era logo glimpsed in "These Are the Voyages."

An NX-refit would have worked too. Or a Daedalus. Just saying.

Or at least beamed into transporter oblivion as part of some weird experiment.

Well that's a 5-minute Photoshop cover. Ah well. It's all about the worlds.

Just a thought, but wouldn't Mike and Denise Okuda have all the reference material you'd need? They're easily reachable on Facebook. I would have assumed they designed that logo.
