Yeah, the only good ones I can remember are the ones for Plagues of Night and Raise the Dawn. I'm hoping the covers for Star Trek: The Fall will be good.

The ones for the Destiny trilogy (five years ago) were awesome, but it has been pretty slim-pickings as far as quality artwork goes since then.

As for the release date, I'm pretty sure it will be August, the month after A Choice of Futures.

It's supposed to be the August book (meaning it'll be out the last Tuesday of July).
Thanks to you both! I checked MA's Upcoming Productions page, and sure enough, it's listed there. When I had searched on the title, I got no page hits. However, it looks like the apostrophe messes up whatever search algorithm they're using, since I tried searching on "T'Pol" as a test and got no hits either.

The mention of Majestic 12 leads me to wonder if Cryptosporidium-136 will have a cameo in the book.
And here I was wondering if Seven would travel back in time to work with them...

Based on that synopsis, I wonder if the Vulcan who had been on Earth for over a decade is the same one from the Enterprise episode where T'Pol tells a tale of the first contact with Earth that may or may not be real.

^The final scene of T'Pol holding T'Mir's purse makes it pretty clear that the story was true. No doubt the Vulcan is Mestral, and that's a cool connection.

I meant the episode was playing it up the ambiguity as to whether it was a true story or not until the ending. Or I could be remembering the episode incorrectly and it was never played that way, but for some reason I thought they couldn't figure out if it was a true story and that was part of the episode.

At the end, Archer or Trip ask T'Pol if the story actually was true, and she just answers with a vague "you asked me to tell you a story." They then jump to T'Pol in her quarters with the purse. Whatever ambiguity there is is short lived.

^Yes. It was played as ambiguous, but many viewers remember that ambiguity while forgetting that it was pretty solidly resolved at the end, which was why I offered that reminder.
