It's weird, at first glance I don't think much of the cover. But then the longer I look at it, the more I notice something indefinable about it that I like.

The photoshopped pips?

I like it. The only thing that really stands out as looking bad to me is the rank pips.

Something seems slightly off about Janeway's neck, like it's too long or something.

If you aren't satisfied with the current cover, wait for its German version.

The cover looks great
But I've always wondered why from The Eternal Tide onwards,the VOY title became black (it looks so out of place when put next to the other VOY relaunch books-sorry,just a minor grouse).

Could it be because they're using lighter colors in the cover images?

Re: Star Trek Voyager: Protectors by Kirsten Beyer, Jan 2014!

Someone posted the Protectors cover elsewhere and pointed out KJ had captain's pips. I looked more closely and it was a slightly different image than the image first posted here and elsewhere. So I looked on Amazon then on Simon/Schuster and yes the uniforms in the picture now look like the old-style Starfleet ones worn on Voyager instead of the new-style types. The turtlenecks are even different. And Janeway does have captain's pips instead of the admiral's bar. LOL wonder why, maybe it's a (the current picture) mistake? (Hope so lol.) Anyway, here's the Simon/Schuster link, just fyi: http://books.simonandschuster.com/St.../9781476738543

Usually, covers go through several phases before a definative version is released. A lot of the times, when making covers using pre-existing images that are going to be photoshopped, they used the mock-up to show what the cover is sort of going to look like, and then when the approvel is given, the cover is finished. I'm guessing this is one of those mock-ups.

Well yes, but one would think that since there is, it seems, a more "accurate" image available (the first one shown, with the new-style uniforms), that's the one that would be shown on Amazon/SS! Hopefully the image we first saw will be the one on the book, lol. (I noted elsewhere when it came out first Voyager novel cover pic (in USA) of KJ in the newer uniforms.)

Probably just a small mix-up.

LOL, I hope, thanks! Still, kind of interesting /weird, IMO.

So is that a working title or the final one?

So 2 more books and that's the end of Voyager or just the end of your run?
That's the final title.

I have no reason to believe that after these two books, Voyager, or my run, will end. This will merely conclude all of the major story arcs that have been in development since Full Circle and take us up to or very near the end of the fleet's first year in the Delta Quadrant.

Beyond that, it's too early to speculate on anything else.

Best,
Kirsten Beyer
Thank God. As much as I love current Trek lit, it wouldn't be the same without you and Voyager. I didn't love Eternal Tide as much as your other titles; but overall, the quality has been fantastic. Glad to hear the run isn't coming to an end.
