Very cool. Did you make those yourself?

No, I accidentally found the picture on the web when I was googling for an image of Captain Ro Laren and thought it would be neat to add it here.

BTW, here's a link to Cross Cult's first batch of portraits on Facebook:

In their Timeline section of 2012, there are also depictions of Janos and M'ress in the current uniform style.

Re: Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

I've seen a nice manip of Captain Ezri Dax with a different hairstyle that I like better than what's been used lately. Not going to post the pic, its on a myspace (remember that?) Page that isn't mine. Here's a link though.

Wait, that's supposed to be Ezri? It doesn't do her justice.
It took me a few minutes to figure out who it was supposed to be too. I got Ro straight away - the hair, the mole - but Dax took me a sec.

It would be interesting to know where they came from, though, because they're obviously Lit-based, not TV-based.

As for other images of cast members, I found these images of the USS Titan's crew on deviant.art - here, here, here - and I always go back to Geoffrey Thorne's thread (TTN: Sword of Damocles author) and his cartoon-style drawings here. Some of them are not entirely how I envisaged them, but it's a good place to start.

Yikes. Why do so many people assume that Dr. Ree is an upright, human-shaped biped when the books make it clear that he's shaped like a theropod dinosaur? They're thinking Gorn when they should be thinking Utahraptor.

^A combination of human ignorance and arrogance. People don't know what Dr. Ree looks like but assume he must look something like them.

Thank You, for those links. I really enjoyed all the Titan pics as that is my favorite series.

Figured especially Therin might be interested in the first cover draft for Cross Cult's version of Titan: Fallen Gods.

That's cool. Definitely more interesting than the one we got. I really got my hopes up that they would include new characters on the Titan covers fairly often after Akaar on The Red King and Ree on Orion's Hounds, but ever since then they've pretty much just stuck to the TV characters. I understand it's probably a lot cheaper to just use old photos than to hire a model for a new character, but that doesn't make it any less annoying.
I wish the books were popular enough that we could get reference books that include stuff from the novels and comics like the Star Wars ones.

Here's an idea that is really out there: maybe bookstores sell more copies when a character from TV is one the cover rather than a character who only appears in the books. Might be economics.

Of course it would be nice to see book covers, such as "The Eye Of The Beholder" with a TV character and a book only character.
