Yeah. Helen Noel is just so gorgeous!

I found a picture with her, Kirk and Spock that almost felt like a promo pic and for some reason there was this flash that popped through my head "Kirk, Spock and McCoy". Like what if McCoy had been a female? Would've been an interesting dynamic.

I know TNG tried a female McCoy, but she came off as mean because Data was so child like. If McCoy had been played by this actress as Noel was played, I think it would've been a great dynamic (sans romance with Kirk stuff) and she would've come off as caring, but strong.

See if you can do a 1970s style novel tie in to what PLANET OF THE TITANS would have looked like, via NBC...

I'll take a look. If it's interesting, and if it fits with what I'm doing, and if I have the time, I may give it a shot. Although 50's and 60's era are more my speciality. 70's and up is more Ptrope and Arcas. (see Ptrope's wonderful covers upthread....it's like they fell through a timewarp)

Re: The Library of Star Treks That Never Were - Book cover designs

Thanks, The Lensman!

And it's time to 'publish' another! "A Piece of Forever" is the sequel to, obviously, "The City on the Edge of Forever," but in this story, Kirk and his handful of Enterprise officers were unable to return to their own time. With their knowledge of the future, their personal experience and knowledge of the technology of their ship, and recordings that Spock is able to recover of the decades ahead, they work in secret to find a way back into space, and back to the Guardian.



(This cover was created for Klaus's September/October challenge, "The Alternative Factor"; the Enterprise in the image is based on Axeman3D's "Metaluna saucer" from the movie This Island Earth)

Re: The Library of Star Treks That Never Were - Book cover designs

A very fascinating idea!

I've always wondered what a Starfleet crew might do if they were trapped in the past, and this idea was almost hinted at in First Contact (before Data eventually helped to ultimately kick the Borg to the curb). What if Picard had not given or rescinded the order for the crew to live in late 21st century, and if the crew had instead attempted to use their knowledge to return the the 24th century? That might have been the best way to stay out of history's way.

Love the design, but my only nerdish nitpick is the green lines sorta make the ship look like it is hanging on a model.

Re: The Library of Star Treks That Never Were - Book cover designs

Thanks! Sorry about the lines; I've never seen them that way - they're part of the composition of the classic Blish <i>Trek</i> covers, and I was trying to emulate that. Just takes a different eye, I guess .
