Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

The cover is a picture I made for the "Ships of the Line" calendar 2013 - I think it is the july picture.

Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

Okay, you guys had me pull it out of the shelf again.

It's "A Star To Steer Her By" by Tobias Richter, the July image from Star Trek Ships of the Line 2013. tobiasrichter already said it. ^

Personally, I like the idea of reusing SOTL images a lot! Those pictures are too awesome to not be re-featured, and I'd love to read stories revolving around those scenes, e.g. the encounter between a Columbia-class and Xindi-Reptilian vessles, or the battle with the lava-space-kraken.

Though personally I'd like to see (or write) more stories set in the period when Spock is on leave and Sulu is acting first officer. I mean, a year is a long time.

Books with Sulu as the first office would be cool, but I'd really love to read more about Spock mentoring Saavik.
I know this is illogical (just a matter of personal preference), but I am not especially interested in TOS stories without Spock (probably because I was a Spock fan first and a Star Trek fan second.

I wouldn't mind seeing more about Spock mentoring Saavik, but I'm not sure how you do that without repeating The Pandora Principle.

I would love more Sulu-as-first officer stories! Especially if they also develop on DRG's characterisation of him in Allegience in Exile, and your own work, Christopher.

Also something exploring Saavik and Spock would be nice too - whether in continuity or not, à la Crucible.

Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

I like this cover. Anything that's not a floating head is great. I love ship shots - particularly if it isn't something we've seen a million times.

That cover actually fits in pretty well with the one for last TOS e-book, Season of Light and Darkness.

Those are the covers of the last five eBook exclusives.

One the one hand you could argue they're consistent, on the other hand I just think it's not really original to have "ship shots" on all of them.

Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

The Trill involvement sounds interesting, especially since Audrid was the head of Trill Symbiosis Commission in her time and involved in the Trill symbionts & parasite storyline in the DS9-R.

I suspect that cost savings may have something to do with it.

Yeah, I'm aware of that.

But there could at least be some diversity among the "cheap" covers IMO. Heck, at least use slightly altered stock head shots here and there for all I care.

No, because we know canonically that Tobin Dax visited Vulcan and Emony Dax knew the young Leonard McCoy as a student. According to The Lives of Dax, Trill's first contact was with the Vulcans in 2075. And Tobin has been a recurring character in The Romulan War and Rise of the Federation.

Thanks, there is a lot of Trek out there I haven't read but now that you mention McCoy that was referenced on the DS9 Tribble episode right?

Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

Y'know I'd love to see a Myriad Universes story where knowledge of Trill symbionts is public at an earlier date than the 24th century. Oh, and the unacknowledged caste system on Trill and the dumbasses in the Symbiosis Commission also come down at an earlier date.
