    Cross Cult stated on facebook that the covers are indeed supposed to be a triptych, so I'd presume that they are going to fix that.

    Ok. It seems weird they'd miss parts like that though, I would think it would just be one big image that got cut into thirds.

    It could be they were wrapping the image around the spines, but misaligned it so that they wrapped around what was supposed to be on the front rather than the overscan that included the art of the previous volume.

    Oh, that would make sense; it does look like the background elements of the three covers don't quite align, which could be more evidence in favor of that.

    Yeah, that could be it. It does seem to be just a few inches worth of the images that are missing, so I could see those bits fitting on the spines.

    Remind me, is that going to be a normal sized one or slightly bigger (like the specials) or even bigger like the jumbo versions?

    According to Memory Alpha the #Luna and #Vesta are separate from the other releases. Size-wise looks between normal and Special. Defo no jumbo.

    New Cross Cult covers!
    From least exciting (in my opinion) to most exciting:
    DS9: Vorherrschaft (Ascendance, translation: supremacy):
    [​IMG]

    Seekers: Zweite Natur (Second Nature)
    [​IMG]

    Seekers: Divergenzpunkt (Point of Divergence)
    [​IMG]

    TTN: Aus der Dunkelheit (Sight Unseen, translation: out of darkness)
    [​IMG]

    The DS9 cover depicts a very similar scene but is not identical to the US cover and the Seekers covers feature changed colors in the background while the Titan cover on first glance appears to be new, but actually just has changed colors for the Titan and the debris which makes it look a lot cooler. And I love the title.

    I still prefer the NA Seekers covers because of the retro look of them, but these other ones... Jesus H, they're amazing.

    Sweet cheeses! I'm so glad we get two covers of each book these days.

    I like that version of the Sight Unseen cover better. I'm not a big fan of the toned down colors they used in the US version.

    I like that the Titan novel keeps the 'Titan' running along the side like the NA version.

    Edit: I just realized it is also the same image from the NA cover, doh.

    Looks a lot better in the true colour though.

    I hope that DS9 Cover is temp.

    Have we ever had schematics or official interpretations of the Aventine and Titan Bridge and DS9-II Command Centre - we've had such good detail for Vanguard and the Archer, and external schematics for Titan and DS9-II and even New Frontier was pretty explicitly a hybrid of the Ambassador and Galaxy Class Bridges in the first run of novels.

    Picking up the DS9 novels with Sarcraments of Fire after a gap of several years since reading the last one, and I'm wondering why the station needs a Captain and XO chair - how these are positioned with relation to the other stations and the ops table. Inevitably I'm diverting back to a Starfleet-ised version of the original Ops (but a little more symmetrical with O'Brien's station being replicated on the opposite side, instead of Dax' science station).

    Likewise, the descriptions of the Aventine and Titan Bridge as being just like the Sovereign - except smaller - is a bit disappointing as it would've been nice for the classes to have their own individual designs. My default for Aventine, despite this is a hybrid of the Trek 09 Enterprise and the Enterprise D, and the Titan maintains as the Sovereign.

    The closest we've come to something official is a couple panels of the TNG Hive comic, which show Riker, Vale, Troi, Tuvok and a new character on the Titan bridge. All you can see is ops, the three center seats, and tactical.

    I think Cross Cult's Prey covers were already shown indinivually, but on their facebook page Cross Cult posted an image of all of them slapped together:

    Very cool. Is there an in story reason for the dark marks on the face of the Klingon in the middle?
