    Heya, here's a quick scan of the one-page preview ad for the upcoming Alien Spotlight II miniseries, from the current Alien Spotlight I omnibus...

    There'll actually be a sixth book in the series, but IDW is keeping it a surprise for now...

    Thanks! I was soooo tempted to scan mine, but Book Must Be Mint Condition.

    Ooooooooo. The truth about the Ba'ku rhyl?

    You've tempted back Larry Niven and his kzin?

    The secret lives of Triexians?

    A horta book with real stone cover?

    The mind boggles...

    A Deltans issue in a plain brown wrapper...?

    Perhaps an in-depth, insightful, and thought-provoking examination of the Pakleds?

    "Naked Came the Betazoid" - the heretofore untold story of Riker and Troi's wedding and featuring a secret assassination plot against Captain Picard, who apparently is discovered to be the "best man" in more ways than one.

    Oh, and those Holy Rings of Betazed? Wait'll you see what they're really for.



    (Wait. I already pitched this story once....)

    There was a nice response to that from Troi (I suspect it was in a PAD novel) - along the lines that in the darkness, the warrior may not realise who his friends are.

    Is that Bruce Timm doing the art for the Klingons?

    ^^Doesn't look a thing like Timm's style to me; the face has too much detail and isn't angular enough. The caption seems to say "Art by David Messina," the artist on the Blood Will Tell miniseries.

    Although the artwork for Alien Spotlight II: Klingons is actually going to be painted artwork by J.K. Woodward.

    ^ Some of it will be painted. Not all of it.

    As I said earlier in the thread :
    It's a vertical three-quarters-page, colour illustration, by David Messina. :cool:
