And the enemy killed my dad!
Wow, a writer fight!
Long thread for a book not close to release date.
If Dayton's book is anywhere near as good as David's, then this will be the strongest book launch in Star Trek's history.
Really? I mean, Desperate Hours was good, I loved it, but a stronger launch than the Avatar duology?
Or the Kirsten Beyer relaunch. And IMO the early Enterprise novels were also better than Desperate Hours.
Cover is revealed:
Getting progressively better. Cool.
Nice cover art
It’s a shame Hoshi won’t be in it. They could have had some fun with her saying that Kirk knew her and that she told him stories about his great grandparents and her adventures on the Enterprise, which could Give another reason as to why he joined Starfleet later on.
Hoshi could had sacrificed herself in some way to save him from Kang and Kodos.
It’s alright but I prefer starships on the cover rather than characters. Would be cool to see a era appropriate Shenzhou.
Shame that it's unlikely the Discovery marketing team would allow such design of the Shenzhou to exist in dissonance with the franchise theme. A reconciliation of the TOS aesthetic with the DIS aesthetic would be interesting.
The Shenzhou isn't featured in the book.
Isn’t it? Apologies. Well whatever ship that’s in it then. Would be interesting to see some of the missing link ships between the NX and Conny.
The guy you're quoting is the guy who wrote the damn novel. If he says the Shonzhou isn't in the novel, then the Shenzhou most certainly is not in the novel.
This isn't a ship-based story at all.
I assume they get there by ship, unless they have the JJVerse transwarp beaming by then.
Sure, but having a really cool ship on the cover that appears once in chapter 1 and then again the the epilogue and has near to no bearing on the story other than bringing the main characters to the location seems kinds scummy. Of course I don't know how important any ship in the story is. Anyway, I prefer faces on cover, although both can be done better or worse.
There is an old, I believe Andorian proverb about assumptions and bits of the anatomy.
Separate names with a comma.
