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

This has been out for awhile now, but who's the dark-haired woman on the Cross Cult cover of Requiem? Soleta?
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-dtlmZIqXI3...+I+Requiem.jpg

And why do these 22nd century Romulan birds of prey have holes in their centers?

And who the heck is that third from the right?

Yes, that's Soleta.

The hole exists on the original model as well.

The guy on the right is Mark McHenry.

I've been re-reading Vanguard, and reading the description of Rana Desai, I thought that Reshma Shetty would be a good fit for her (Yes, I know that David Mack already cast Parminder Nagra).

How can that be possible? There's no hole visible from the top.

No, third from the right. The person with the distinct hairline.

I don't see a hole in the Romulan ship. I see a protruding piece with some windows in the front that look a bit like stars shining through at first glance.

There's not a hole but an indentation. It is better visible on this image: http://fc03.deviantart.net/images3/i...rd_of_Prey.jpg

Otherwise, I'd say there is a bird-painting-sized hole on the underside.

^It looks to me like the relief features on the underside are shaped to suggest a bird with spread wings. The section protruding from the indentation would be the breast and underside of the bird.

Have seen any images of the Demeter or it's class? I was having trouble getting a clear mental image while I was reading Protectors.
You can also see it by typing in "USS Demeter" into google images. It shows up right away
Found it. Thank you. I honestly don't remember ever seeing that before, but I don't know how I could have possibly missed it.

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

Demeter for the most part seems to be intact, I had some really bad errors last Christmas, including not being able to open the Demeter file in a newer version of my software. This is now resolved. This is where I left it I think:

To me, Burgoyne will always be David Bowie with a mullet from the cover of Fire on High.

Amen! I always thought s/he looked like Bowie in that pic. I love those two covers for books #5 & 6 with the whole command staff

Mulciber-class

We haven't seen the Mulciber-class USS Achilles yet, and it's not included in the silhouettes of the Voyager Fleet on the German book covers. The Achilles is described as a 900m long starship with a triangular saucer. I don't remember whether the nacelles are down- or upswept.

Anyway, from the moment I first read the description of the Achilles in Children of the Storm, I easily pictured it as one of the Federation starcruiser from STO.

The Emissary-class is the closed visual fit with its triangular saucer.


The components can be swapped between starcruiser classes, i.e. the nacelles can be upswept by picking Sentinel-class pylons, for example.

Until there's an official image for the Achilles, I'm mentally picturing an Emissary-class ship with raised nacelles.
