That is a beautiful cover for a very exciting sounding book. I wonder if the terrorist attack it refers to is the event from R&D or if it refers to something that happens in one of the other two books?

Beautiful cover of the good ship Titan. Very nice.

Titan is my favorite novel series and this sounds likely to be a great new addition to the series. I can't wait until November.

Oh my.

That cover is, as many have pointed out, beautiful, and the plot sounds delicious as well.

I wonder if it will be following up the plot thread left dangling at the end of the last book.

Did they get someone to make a new model of the Titan? It might just be the lighting, but the proportions look a little different, as does the level of detail from the ones we've been seeing for the past couple of years.

The plot sounds very different from the usual Titan kind of story, which is exploration-focused. Even in Destiny, Titan's role in the plot was about discovering and exploring a remote alien society. This will be the first time ever that a TTN novel has been set primarily within Federation space. Quite a change. I wonder if it will have a lasting impact on the series.

Fair enough. Maybe one of the mods would be so kind as to fold the two together?
Will do. Bear in mind I have no idea how vBulletin handles a merge, so I don't know which of the two threads will remain as post 1 and title.

Considering the kickoff event in Book One...fair odds to this (relatively) uninformed observer.

I hope not, it kind of feels like the Typhon Pact stuff has started to drag a bit too much into political thriller territory, where every story is starting to become intensely focused on conflict.

What we're getting has definitely been better than the open warfare a lot of people thought we'd be getting when all of this started, IMO.

I really love this cover, and it makes me wish even more that The Crimson Shadow cover was as spectacular.

I guess I'm just echoing everyone else at this point, but I agree, that's one gorgeous cover. And the story sounds really interesting too. Looking forward to it!

I hope not. I'm really looking forward to this as I loved Swallow's previous entry, but a large part of the appeal of Titan for me is the Strange New Worlds ethos of Trek that has been the focus of the series and is what makes it tick. If the series switched to be another TNG-like take on the franchise, I'd be very disappointed.

I'm guessing (completely uneducated obviously) that this entry is more an "anomaly" for the series and we'll see reprocussions for the crew (a la Destiny to Over a Torrent Sea) that'll spin off into whatever next deep space assignment awaits the crew in subsequent books.

But what do I know?
