The Fall: Peacable Kingdoms cover

StarTrek.com has revelaed the cover for the final The Fall book in an article about the book.



“The United Federation of Planets takes the first hopeful steps beyond the uncertainty and tragedy that has overshadowed recent events in the Alpha Quadrant. Even as elements of the Typhon Pact have been implicated in a devastating attack against the Federation, William Riker holds key knowledge of the true criminals—a revelation that could threaten the fragile Federation-Cardassian alliance. Time is running out to apprehend those responsible for the brutal crime.
“Questions and concerns also continue to swell around the ambitious Bajoran Ishan Anjar, who has risen through the ranks of the Federation Council while using the recent bloodshed to further a belligerent, hawkish political agenda against the Typhon Pact. Riker must dispatch his closest friend, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, in a desperate attempt to uncover the truth. But as Picard and the Enterprise crew pursue the few remaining clues, Riker must act on growing suspicions that someone within Ishan’s inner circle has been in league with the criminals from the very beginning…”

That's a very Nu-BSG-ish ship with the Big E

Beautiful. A vast improvement over The Crimson Shadow.

It looks like the ship that Defiant was with in Starship Down and followed into that Gas Giant.

Tis a nice cover though, better than the Crimson Shadow.

Re: The Fall: Peacable Kingdoms cover

What's with these almost amateur-looking covers? This is two in a row that look like bad photoshop jobs. Enterprise on a generic nebula background. This time with a ship that looks like it's been part-modded from a runabout and BSG. Oh, and an explosion to cover up some of the poor modelling.

Re: The Fall: Peacable Kingdoms cover

This cover is a lot better! Also, Dimesdan is right; the other ship is the CGI model of the Karemma ship from "Starship Down", modified somewhat. I like it. I actually have the Micro Machine of the Karemma ship in front of me. Weird coincidence!

Oh cool, so these threads really do come together. The prior book features the Titan, but so does this one. I like that.

Re: The Fall: Peacable Kingdoms cover

So does Riker get promoted to Admiral in this book? Also the Trek.com articles has a mistake. It says PK is book 3 of 5. I thought PK was suppose to be book 5 of 5.

Same here. I'm always glad to have more Titan stories.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the focus shifts from Deep Space 9 (via Cardassia) to Earth.

That actually sounds really cool. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Titan yet though.

Much better than The Crimson Shadow but not nearly as good as The Poisoned Chalice. The lack of consistent quality is a bit frustrating there ...

That's a Karemma Ship from DS9.

Way predating nuBSG.

I'm just basing that question on this line in the synopsis:

Riker must dispatch his closest friend, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, in a desperate attempt to uncover the truth.
Last I checked, between Picard and Riker, Picard was still the senior Captain, so it would be odd to see Picard taking orders from Riker at the Captain level, however, it would make sense if Riker was an Admiral. Or else someone at Simon & Schuster screwed up the copy on this book, and its suppose to be Picard ordering Riker.

It's not as bad as The Crimson Shadow, but it would've been nice to have seen a painted cover, not a cover from Photoshop. Aside from the two covers with the new DS9, the rest are pretty forgettable.

^ I had the same thought about Riker. If it is true that doesn't necessarily mean Titan is over, the series could always continue with Vale or Tuvok in command.
