Re: DRGIII posted the cover for his The Fall novel on FB.

The nebula in the background makes me think of Babylon 5, which always seemed to have a nebula or something colourful in the background of its stations, ships, battles and planets. [Edit: or a computer game world like Homeworld 2]

Also the station seems not only to be a callback to old DS9, but also the artists' drawings in 'Far Beyond the Stars'

Does anybody know yet if all of book in The Fall will share a common cover design theme?

I've just realized the Robinson isn't flying in front of the station, it's docked with it.

Does dodgy CGI count as a theme?

I like it! Not a bad cover. I'm really looking forward to reading these as I'm tired and disappointed in the TOS books we have gotten so far this year. I hope next year that Pocket schedules a lot less TOS. Although I have high hopes that Leisner's Shocks of Adversity, which arrived yesterday but have not started yet.

I really the new design of the station, although I agree with others who have it looks "too CGI-y." Nonetheless, it's very exciting to see.

Fantastic interview with lots of insights on the upcoming series, particularly George's entry (complete with a brief excerpt). I look forward to the following interviews of the other authors.

So two years have passed since DS9 was destroyed. So The Fall will be set in mid-2385.
