One Constant Star Cover Revealed!



Just saw this on the Facebook group, The Trek Book Community or what ever it's called and even though they normally seem to repeat stuff from here, I thought I'd share the cover and do the opposite.

Its looks rather good and'll fit in nicely with the majority of the Lost Era published a decade ago!

Given Serpents is one of my all time favourite Trek stories, I'm rather looking forward to a story set on the Enterprise B again.

Re: One Costant Star Cover Revealed!

Just noticed I spelt the name wrong in the title, have reported the error and hopefully it'll be changed when one of the Mods can get around to it.

That's wonderful. Love that it follows the other Lost
Era covers. Well, except for The Buried Age and Terok Nor trilogy.

This cover image needs to be taken down. According to David R. George III, he doesn't want it shared like it is. He only wants it linked to.

Jd Brodsky Would you mind if I shared that with the TrekBBS readers? I'm sure they would like to see it.

David R. George III Thanks, all. In a few hours, StarTrek.com will also put up the back-cover copy for the novel.

JD, please do not copy the photo, but feel free to link to it.

Oh yes, the cover is NOT public domain just because it was posted on Facebook.

I don't like it. Crap as usual. What is it with those 5 minute hackjobs for book covers?





In this day and age, posting a photo on Facebook asking not to use it is like leaving your car with open windows and the key inside (which most insurance companies take as the number one reason to tell you to fuck off). If you don't want your photos to be stolen, post them on a site using precautions, like one that disables right click and other saving options. Then one has to make a greater effort to steal it, like smashing the windows of your car and hotwiring it.

I'll happily change it to a link, but I don't use Facebook. Can someone post the link here and I'll put it in the original post.

Thanks!

Re: One Constant Star Cover Revealed!

Cheers for correcting that stupid spelling mistake.

It is also a link (kinda) already, one to my own photo bucket account and because not everyone uses (or seems to actually understand) Facebook and social media, I assumed, it could stay after seeing what JWolf put in here and repeated in private.

Re: One Constant Star Cover Revealed!

Well, I rather like it. The (shuttlecraft?) front-window view with the nebula and star in the center make me very curious about what is going on. And I love that they returned to the prior style for the Lost Era covers! All in all, very nicely done.

Re: One Constant Star Cover Revealed!

I gathered, although kudos to you asking for permission to post the image, I didn't get it from his fan page, I got it from somewhere else unknowing of what he had unfairly requested.

I am fully aware that by posting the image, he may actually not post one again before Trek.com or S&S, but given the nature of Facebook and other social media, being open to everyone who wants to join (bit like here really) once an image like that has been posted, it will get spread and asking for it to be linked is just wishful thinking I'm afraid. Plus not everyone uses Facebook which I know, boggles the mind, it is true.

If it is decided to remove the image (which doesn't break the rules here) and create a link as requested by someone who hasn't been an active member of this site in several years, not since he took his ball home and refused to play anymore, then so be it. But as I said, I wasn't aware of the request, I didn't get the image from his own fan page, but somewhere else and he posted it on Facebook.

Anyway, what did you think of the image?

Here's a link to the just the cover image with the comments following. I think this one is the best one to use.

Re: One Constant Star Cover Revealed!

I like how it's consistent with the cover setup for the 2003 Lost Era books!

I wonder if Section 31: Disavowed's cover will follow the same design scheme they used for the 2001 Star Trek: Section 31 books?

I completely understand how you came across the image, and that you didn't mean any harm, but I just thought since he asked that it not be copied, I would point that out here.
As for the cover, I like it. I'm glad they are going back to the style of the first batch of TLE books. I was disappointed when they didn't use it for the Terok Nor trilogy or The Buried Age.
