Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

Thanks to Markonian for the title !

We all develop mental images while reading - that character, ship or whatever may actually have an illustration somewhere on a novel cover, magazine, online or elsewhere. This is a chance to develop a resource for readers where you can find out just what they look like whether it's the ships of the Voyager fleet, new Starfleet uniforms, the NX refits or the colour of someones hair.

Please add what you can - it's over to you...

My version of Captain Kat Mueller of the USS Trident. The actress in question is Michaela McManus.

I think the point of the thread is more like this...

Re: Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

Yeah, we already have a cast the characters thread, so it's probably be best to limit this one to stuff that actually shows the characters/ships/ect. how they would appear in the books. So if you're going to use photos they should probably be photoshoped or somehow altered so they represent the character and not just pictures of who would play them.
I'll leave to finalized rules to Relayer1, but that's my take on it.
I did have some very rough Photoshops I did of several characters that I was going to post. But all I could find was copies in a word document, and it wouldn't let me copy them onto the boards.

^Yeah, my understanding is that this thread is for collecting existing novelverse art/designs in one place.

The Cross Cult pictures are a good way to start, Imho. Recently, the Excalibur-A made it to the cover of Excalibur: Restoration/Restauration.

Re: Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

I don't want to set hard and fast rules (or set myself up as a sort of mini-mod). I'll be happier reading this thread than trying to police it !

The general idea behind it was to gather images from book covers, ships of the line, the internet etc. in one place, but that is not to say that other stuff is banned. As posted though, there is already a 'Cast the Novelverse' thread.

The german covers really are fantastic. I would love to see a resource of them, or some higher quality posts. [Most of the ones that turn up on google are pretty low quality.]

I've been meaning to try and swap some of my ebooks with the german covers, but I'm not sure if that's possible for the ones purchased off of amazon.

No, Ivanova is her evil counterpart from the mirror universe.

Does that count?
I put in spoilers because the picture is damn big.

Wait, that's supposed to be Ezri? It doesn't do her justice.
