    For the record: that shot of Kira -- on the floor, in civilian clothes, holding a Starfleet phaser -- happens in A Gutted World. I am well pleased. :)

    Who is the 'model' for Thelin? He looks familiar.

    Those are fantastic! Though I've got to say, the old T'Pol on Infinity's Prism's cover looks like a zombie!

    Oops, have I just given away the ending? ;)

    Mm. The triangle-patterning on the first book really doesn't do it for me. The blending on the second one is nice, however. I must ask, however, what's the deal with the colour saturation recently. The Terok Nor trilogy, the Fearful Symmetry covers, and now these two. I don't particularly care for the technique - only Echoes and Refractions, of the covers listed, actually makes it look relevant and aesthetically pleasing, IMHO - and it's gotten tiresome fast.

    Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

    I've really liked the recent covers. They seem somewhere between Rising son and Mission: Gamma in execution, which has made for a very nice result. :)

    I like them both, maybe E&R a little more than the IP. But, I like Bashir's look on the IPs cover, I think that's the story I'm most looking forward too.

    It's not "triangle-patterning," it's prism-patterning for a book entitled Infinity's Prism. :D


    Well, all six of those covers are by the same artist: John Picacio. A look at his web site will reveal that that color saturation style is his trademark.

    She looked like that in E2 as well. I always wondered why; Vulcans aren't supposed to look that old when at that age (Sarek looked much healthier even up till the day he died, and that was a fair bit older than what T'Pol was in E2).

    Yes, I understood the relationship with the title. But the basic form is still a series of triangles which... I don't know, seems too rigid and confining, particularly on a book about divergeance. But I'm probably reading too much into it.

    Should have suspected that. Well, no accounting for taste - mine, or his.

    A result from frequent exposure to (not to mention use of) Trellium-D, perhaps? Wouldn't be the first Vulcan to go zombie-like as a result of the substance. And hey, once she's done saving humanity from itself, she can go to schools to talk about her drug use. "I used to think that experimenting with emotions was 'cool'. Now look at me! I'm hideous! Don't make my mistake - say 'no' to Trellium-D."

    So the whole Xindi thing happened in the A Less Perfect Union timeline as well as the original one, then?

    Quoth the back cover copy for A Less Perfect Union: "More than a hundred years after the Terra Prime movement achieved its dream of an isolationist Earth..." This leads me to suspect that the divergent point is "Demons"/"Terra Prime," which means, basically, that all of Enterprise up to those two episodes happened.

    That's just a guess, though, based solely on the copy. All I've read of ALPU is what was in the magazine....

    I imagine only Leisner could answer for certain, but if the point of divergeance was the Terra Prime incidence seen in the series (end Season 4), then Season 3 ought to have happened as well. Indeed, the Terra Prime faction emerged, or at least gained most of its traction from, the attack on Earth by the Xindi; a Xindi-less reality would have to find another source to account for widespread xenophobia on Earth.

    Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

    EDIT: Again! He does that on purpose, you know.

    Just family resemblance. ;)

    So this is the surprise PaulSimpson mentioned would thrill me? "The Chimes at Midnight" is previewing in the Titan ST mag, presumably alongside the new cover art?

    The return of Mr Thelin (TAS). Yay!

    T'Pol had become addicted to Trellium-D injections, remember.
