    1. It’s a freighter, though I confess it came out looking much differently than I anticipated. When asked for input to the cover, I basically said, “There’s a scene where the Enterprise is engaged with a ______ freighter.” That’s all the “direction” I was able to provide. I love the way the Enterprise looks here. I’ve always thought the Sovereign ships look better from above than below, but that’s just me.


        1. I know Doug at least did the first go. It’s possible that the Pocket in-house art director made some changes. That’s not uncommon, but I rarely/ever know who does what, or when, or why, etc.

          It’s pretty rare for tie-in writers to get any sort of real input to cover designs, anyway. We get to make suggestions, etc. from time to time, but not anything like approval/veto power. After all, it’s not a “Dayton Ward” book up there; it’s a Star Trek book. That’s the brand being sold.


        2. Well, that happens, too. The cover for From History’s Shadow doesn’t really depict anything from the book, but the imagery is so perfect with respect to the story, it still works. 🙂


Lay it on me.
