    And NF: Treason and ROTF: Uncertain Logic are scheduled for a German release in early 2018. I presume that both will get new covers, as they always do that for NF and apparantly focus on starhip covers with Rise of the Federation, which Uncertain Logic's cover isn't.

    Titan: Fortune of War and Discovery: Desperate Hours. Reader TBA, but Robert Petkoff seems like a safe bet.

    I wish they would go back to using Trek actors for the audio books, I would love to get some Titan books read by Johnathan Frakes, Mirina Sirtis, and/or Tim Russ.

    For TOS, I'm happy with the current narrator; I'd rather have an independent narrator who can nail the entire cast's voice, than one actor who can do their own but may be not be so good with the others.

    For TNG... well, it seems like he recycled a lot of his TOS "voices", which was just weird.

    I'd love to have multi-cast audiobooks.

    In Petkoff's reading of Enigma Tales, the voice characterization of Alden sounds a lot like Picard in Hearts and Minds and Headlong Flight. It might have been more noticeable to me because I listened to those three back to back.

    His Pulaski is great, though, capturing the sarcasm of Muldaur's performances perfectly.

    From rough memory: Riker sounds like the voice he used for Kirk, Data like Spock, LaForge like Uhura, Smirovna (sic) like Chekov.

    The voices fit the TOS cast great. They probably would have worked well enough for the TNG cast as well had I not already heard them previously!
