I've just realized the Robinson isn't flying in front of the station, it's docked with it.

What's it docked too? The shuttle bay of the Galaxy? It looks more like its backed up to the station (maybe there's a Canadarm in the Galaxy's shuttle bay that the engineers need to use on that section of the station).

Re: DRGIII posted the cover for his The Fall novel on FB.

I guess I've been out of the loop but when reading the startrek.com article DRGIII mentions his editors as both Ed Schlesinger and Margaret Clark . I thought Margret Clark was no longer a Star Trek editor? When did she come back? If she is back that great news!

Re: DRGIII posted the cover for his The Fall novel on FB.

That was a good article. I'm really excited for these books now.

Really enjoying the TOS interlude, but DS9 is my favorite. The new DS9 looks great! And I'm so glad that the DS9 series is finally back (after years of neglect).

If I'm not mistaken she is working as a freelancer for S&S, so she isn't permanently with them, but only brought in when she's needed. Basically what Keith R.A. DeCandido has done in the past.

Have any more images (or plans !) of the new station been released yet ?

Two new shots in this interview with Drexler!!!


http://www.startrek.com/article/doug...about-the-fall


And yes, I know that one shot shows us the Bajoran Wormhole in the background, but that may just be artistic license, it doesn't have to mean the wormhole will return in this novel.

It does like another book cover rather than a generic image, you can see the Enterprise-E so it's either book 2 or 4.

i wonder if the return of the wormhole will mean the return of a certain character? All 'dead' Trek characters these days seem to return...

Re: DRGIII posted the cover for his The Fall novel on FB.

Great Interview with David R. George about this book and designing this bookcover and a lot of stuff about this novel and the upcoming TNG/Ds9 crossover there's also a interview with Doug Drexler about how artists design book covers .It's Really interesting to hear how the editors writers and publishers & artists design the covers for the upcoming Star Trek crossover books.There's some interesting stuff about some of ds9 characters mentioned in both interviews.

Plus, having the wormhole in the background lets the more casual reader know "This is the new DS9!"

Re: DRGIII posted the cover for his The Fall novel on FB.

I’m a little disappointed in the new DS9 for 2 reasons not yet mentioned here:


1) It seems too small. I mean, with the Galaxy-class ship apparently docked with DS9 and the Excelsior-class ship in the background, it makes the station seem fairly small. I thought one of the big points made in Raise the Dawn was that the old station was just too small to keep up with the large amount of traffic in the area and that a bigger station was going to be built. I was expecting and really looking forward to a truly massive station. One with rings large enough to actually allow a Galaxy-class ship [or similar] to enter the ring for docking and repair, etc. Still, this is just a drawing; maybe the station really is big once you actually read what is inside the novels about it.

2) It’s bulk is too focused along one axis. The way the station was described in Raise the Dawn, I was expecting all of the rings—in all three dimensions—were going to be large and full of docking ports and bays. This just makes sense in space; no dimension is any more important than another. It also implied to me that gravity would be oriented differently in the rings; not all oriented in the same direction as the center core. Maybe all oriented toward the center like a world. But this design makes one axis much bigger—and therefore more important—than the others. And that’s a bit of a disappointment.

And more....

Probert seems a bit meh about it all, his answers are quite short. But overall, good little interview.

That station looks awful.
They took a fantastic design, managed to nostalgic the shit out of it and turn it into a fan kit-bash.
