Seriously? You think that because he is of Arab heritage and he has a beard, he must be a terrorist!!!!

Do you need to make such numptyish comments and then put a fucking smiley afterwards? Hell, do you need to make such fucking numptyish comments anyway?
I deleted statement.

I retract Statement.

I wasn't implying anything by said statement.

Good for you, but you did say it, it's remaining in what I quoted and no, you didn't imply Bashir with a beard looked like a terrorist, you said out right that he did.

I suspect whatever rights they (both CBS for Trek and Lucasfilm for Wars) have to actors' images are the actors' images as they appeared as said character, not their images in general. Which makes sense.
Though there are exceptions. The image of the young Carol Marcus on the Inception cover is based on the cover image of a '70s TV magazine with a story about a movie Bibi Besch was in. Not sure how the rights issue works with an actress who's no longer with us.

Re: Official Final Typhon Pact blurbs

Yeah, and the Doctor Who audio drama Master used an image of Sylvester McCoy that wasn't from Who as I recall... but on the other hand, when they wanted to give Paul McGann a beard on the cover of Other Lives, some Photoshop magic had to be employed.

My favorite part of this great all-around blurb:

Hearing that we might get a tid bit of what Sisko did during the Borg invasion!

David Mack has posted the cover for Zero Sum Game on his blog.


Four thoughts:

1) Ezri looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

(Somehow you just KNEW I was gonna say that, didn't you? )


2) Bashir looks supremely awesome. And I mean...CHUCK NORRIS awesome!!!

(I'm serious...he's almost a dead-ringer!)


3) Either David Mack has an ego heathy enough to rival mine--or the marketers are finally giving him All Due Respect.


4) (most importantly...) The fact that Ezri and Julian are on the cover--and that Sarina is noticeably absent--to say nothing of the fact that Ezri's looking in Julian's direction...

Is that saying something? Hmm....

That's a very nice cover. I like the colors and the overall design. Ezri and Bashir look great. Kind of funny how Ezri is now Julian's superior officer. I hope the remaining TP covers are released soon.

Yeah--especially considering their moment in Avatar, Part II, where they joke that at this rate, she would soon outrank him...

BTW...Julian is now a full Commander...the same rank as a certain other super-spy, which he loves to emulate....

Ezri's got the bad hair again!

Considering all the hype, I expected the USS Aventine to be front-and-center, hogging all the limelight.

IMHO that probably has more to due with the fact that Sarina was just a minor (to the average public at least) guest star, while Julian and Ezri were main credits regulars.

Re: Official Final Typhon Pact blurbs

(sigh)

"Grow up, 007...."


Seriously--that "minor character thing" didn't stop Carol Marcus and Leila from ending up on Inception--and neither of them appeared more than once. Sarina beats them both, appearance-wise--and I think they could have easily put three faces on the cover, instead of two....

"But Rush, but Rush--Carol and Leila were central characters in that one!"

Well...?

Besides--I would imagine there to be a specific reason that the Aventine/Captain Ezri entry in the Typhon Pact series would feature Julian Bashir. As a rule, I cannot believe something this...ironic...would be a mere coincidence. There must be some sort of reason these two are actually made to be together in the same book again--a purpose.

I'm putting my money on a triangle--or some kind of inner conflict for Bashir or Ezri, at the very least. You all can quote me on this--and if I end up embarrasingly wrong, I swear...I...personally...will lead the round of roasting at my expense!


But hey--worse case scenario: If Bashir concludes in this book that Sarina is indeed his True Love, and Ezri ends up crying herself to sleep (if she reacts to this at all)...well, Kira's involvement with Shakkar didn't keep her from eventually ending up with Odo--so no matter what happens, I'll pick up this book and LIKE it....


(Meanwhile, I'll be logging in my mind a specific agenda for my profic....)

Re: Official Final Typhon Pact blurbs

I have a sense of humor!

In the Network...I am considered very amusing.



(Seriously, Mr. Ward...I was merely joining in, by playing the "straight man". Specifically, I was quoting Desmond Llewellyn's Q, his typical reaction to Pierce Brosnan's James Bond.

C'mon--do you think I was really offended by something so mediocre as "Let the boy dream"?

Besides--why the heck would I want to put you on ignore? I'm far too much of a masochoist for that. )

I'm sorry. He actually happens to look pretty good with a beard.
