    Since they keep spoon-feeding us these covers, here's the overlap between the two books, with Paris and Torres.

    I'm starting to think they'll put all the Voyager main characters (sans Neelix and Kes) on there.

    So no experiments with new characters. It's odd. Tom looks too young and Janeway too old. Ha, I know it. The Krenim are to blame for it!

    I mean, I kinda get it for the final books, but it'd still be nice to see some new faces.

    Also, we have a title: Das Streben nach mehr I and II. (To Strive For More). Certainly seems fitting. I never really got what the original title meant .:hugegrin: Part II comes out in December.

    @James Swallow's The Dark Veil will apparently also get a hardcover version, limited to 999 copies.

    Is there a specific reason they would go with an older Janeway, but have everyone else looking around the same age they did in the show?
    Are there flashforwards or do they go to the future or something?

    It's the last one, they should put all the main characters for all the ships on there (somewhere)! :D

    It looks to me like they actually attempted to make all four look older? :shrug:

    The thing that surprised me a little was B'Elanna's uniform colour. I thought she was the Chief Engineer for the entire fleet, so she would be wearing yellow. (I've read all the Voyager books, but maybe she had a position change that slipped my mind?)

    Tiny people, waving good-bye from the windows of Galen, Vesta and Demeter :D

    Someone mentioned that on facebook, and they said it's a mistake. Presumably they'll fix it for the final cover.

    Why did they split To Lose the Earth into two books in Germany? Does the German version take up a lot more page space? Or does Cross Cult just have a specific length for all their books that To Lose The Earth goes past?

    Voyager doesn‘t sell well in Germany, so by selling two 14€ books instead of one 16€ book they make enough to justify the expense.

    Ha. I'm impressed. Getting older with grey hair but without wrinkles. Botoxed? Or did they get some injections from the Doctor? :D

    In my family, we don't get wrinkled -- just more and more salt-and-peppery over time. People keep telling me I'm ageless, though I don't see myself the same way.

    Smoking and tanning too long takes its toll on one's skin. Luckily I don't smoke and tanning is not possible at the moment.

    Not Star Trek, but Cross Cult announced @David Mack's three Dark Arts novels for later this year.

    Whether it's English or German, I'm not a fan of that cover for "Shadows Have Offended". What's that smudge in front of Worf's mouth? The Enterprise at warp?

    If you mean the one above the tail of the Romulan ship, it appears to be part of the texture of the background planet.

    What are you talking about? The Romulan ship is against a background of stars! I'm talking about the smudge that's above the "STAR" and in front of Worf's mouth!

    I mean the other Romulan ship, the one seen in profile above the word "Star" in the title. Are you viewing the cover on a small screen?
