Yeah. This cover is the sort of visual feast I expect to see whenever I visit DS9!

B-)

The Missing? Looks like everyone's been found, going by that cover.

That's quite a collection of ships, from a big variety of races. Very interesting.

Re: The Missing by Una McCormack

All 22nd Century designs. Hmmm.

Wormhole Aliens, you have some explaining to do.

It might not mean anything (just using whatever CGI ship designs are at hand), but still, pretty. (I see Tandaran patrol ships, a Vissian starship, Guys-Who-Use-Flamethrowers-Against-Loque'eque ships, a Takret pirate ship, Xantoras patrol vessels, an Orion marauder, Rigelian scout ships, a Human freighter, a Vulcan shuttle, a Retellian/Tellarite freighter...)

Re: The Missing by Una McCormack

I think Doug was indeed using what was to hand - he mentions that in the comments to the picture that older ships TOS-film era ships were used throughout the TNG era, implying his justification.

Marcus LaCroix: Looks like some ships from the Enterprise era.
[...]
Doug Drexler: There are, Marcus. I think we can expect ships to last a few hundred years in the future. Even today, the Air Force is flying aircraft that are 60 years old, and TNG featured starfleet ships that were from the K&S movie era.
[...]
Michael French: Doug, I think they reused some ships like The Excelsior Class to keep from having to spend the money on a new one. Don't get me a wrong, it's a great looking ship. I think of The Bird of Prey's...
[...]
Doug Drexler: Michael! You are correct, sir!

Re: The Missing by Una McCormack

With S&S needing to keep an eye out on budgets, and not being able to pay CGI-modelers to take time and design and model new ships all the time, it makes sense to re-use older material, just like in the shows.

What I wonder though, why the hell so many ships are gathering at DS9....

Re: The Missing by Una McCormack

Well, the place is a commerce, exploration and defence hub in Bajor Sector these days...and I kept expecting to see much more in the way of on-camera ship traffic back when the TV series was running.

Well yes. I was wondering if there was a very specific, story related reason. A big conference or something maybe. But yeah, you're right. Especially considering the last three pages of Revelations and Dust, and the second to last chapter of Peaceable Kingdoms, it's easy to forget that DS9 is a huge hub for travel DS9 is again.

Re: The Missing by Una McCormack

One thing I'd like to see, just for my own amusement, in future installments of DS9 novels: a listing of "who's docked at the port right now". How often the listing gets updated within each novel - if at all - and where such appears within the novel can be left to the individual novel-writers. Name, ship's captain/master, registry and port of origin, that sort of thing...?

Does the Earth Cargo Service still exist in the 24th century?

Is there any point of the spoiler rules in here?
I guess spoilers are likely in a discussion of a future book so I have edited the title of this thread.

But could everyone be more careful please. If you're discussing a plot point from books less than six months old, use spoiler tags.

Ooh, very interesting/ominous cover.

But I'm sure they are just coming over for a sweet DS9 party.
