    ^I'm mainly interested in what the German titles mean. According to online translators, this time they're all pretty much verbatim translations, although "Erbsünde" is recommended over "Ursünde" for "original sin" (ur- is more like "primal").

    They used Erbsünde as title for Voyager's Acts of Contrition.

    So, if I'm not mistaken, of the series that Cross Cult still translates only Collateral Damage and any of the upcoming Voyager novels are left, right?

    And yet there are still so many books left to be translated. What about the next Corps of Engineering Sammelband?

    They had one of those yesterday, and it seems they are doing translations of the Legacies trilogy.

    I would buy the books again - especially when they get new covers.

    Even the German titles are available:

    1. Captain to Captain = Von einem Captain zum anderen

    2. Best Defense = Die Beste Verteidigung

    3. Purgatory's Key = Der Schlüssel zur Hölle

    Sorry to necro-thread, but I'm looking for one particular cover that I'd like to get a decent image of.

    The Worlds of DS9 novels all got new Cross Cult covers, and they put all of them up on their Facebook page, both with and without the actual title text... all except for one.

    The cover for Andor: Paradigm is only available with the text on, and I was hoping someone had a copy of or access to the cover without the text? I have lovely text-less images for Sisko, Kira, Ro, Odo, Quark, Dax and Garak, but can anyone find me the text-less one for Shar, please? It offends my OCD to have all but one...

    I'm talking about this one:

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

    It looks like there will be new Trek books in Germany this year. It'll take some time, but rumor has it that they continue the releases in October.

    As Cross Cult would put it: Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

    Not only rumor, Cross Cult has officially announced, there will be new Star Trek Novels in Germany starting this october.
    I guess, there will be announcement in the upcoming months, which books it will be.

    My predictions:
    The latest Voyager novel, the two Picard novels, print-editions of CoE (already translated ebooks), some DSC-novels, the four Kelvin-Timeline books, and certainly Coda.

    Being dead for a year really ages you up!

    The top-down view of Voyager is on the right side. Presumably the second book will have the other side of Voyager. I think it's also cool how they changed up the color scheme (previously the upper half was red, and below that there was Voyager in front of blue space, but now the lower half seems to be red, judging by the last pic, and the upper half has some more somber colors as well.) Maybe this is similar to how the final NF book cover had the sword red and not blue, like the previous books had. Very welcome either well.

    Also, Cross Cult confirmed that one of my guesses (Harry Kim or Fife or Glenn) was right and with that clearly being Kim we can rule out Fife and Glenn for the third person. Any ideas who else is a Lt Cmdr in the Voyager relaunch series?

    Isn't Tom Paris a lieutenant commander? It looks like it could be his chin.

    I like the cover art with Kathryn Janeway that's a nice portrait of her and Harry Kim.
