It could be 10 years depending on which novel it is, because the NF series itself covers a few years doesn't it?
They start with novels #1 - #3 next January, and since she's one of the main characters I assume her pic will be used on one of those (they plan to use the final versions of these sketches for the spines if I'm not mistaken), so I used the date for #1.

She wouldn't have aged that much in 10 years. If you look at the tng cast in the 10 years they on tv their faces didn't change all that much. Though the makeup and the way they shot the series probably changed in those 10 years.

Re: Why does Germany get the cool novel covers?

Cross Cult has put some additional rough character drafts online:

Selar, Lefler and Si Cwan

They have also revealed a first cover draft for the second book of the series. The sword on the left side will most likely become a recurring part of the New Frontier covers.

Re: Why does Germany get the cool novel covers?

Awesome, I'm a big fan of Doctor Selar and Ensign Lefler

Edit: Although I have to say, they could have deviated from the original photographs/screencaps a little more. Oh well, it's only a rough draft after all.

Cool stuff. Love the 3 destiny ones especially. Some of the US covers of the past few years have been less than stellar.
