STAR TREK: DS9 / TEROK NOR

Here's a triptych I recently completed for Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books. I submitted it to the publisher earlier this month, and thanks to some enterprising Trekkies, it's already generating cyber-buzz. So I'll share it here. Forthcoming in 2008, Pocket will release an eagerly-anticipated Terok Nor trilogy chronicling the Cardassian occupation of Bajor and the pre-DS9 origins of the legendary station. My triptych art will be divided across the covers of the three paperbacks. The three novels are:

STAR TREK TEROK NOR: DAY OF THE VIPERS by James Swallow
STAR TREK TEROK NOR: NIGHT OF THE WOLVES by S.D. Perry and Britta Dennison
STAR TREK TEROK NOR: DAWN OF THE EAGLES by S.D. Perry and Britta Dennison

Thanks to James Swallow as well as the folks at TrekWeb for all of the kind words.

That is just gorgeous. You've really nailed their characters, and I love the shot of Bejor in the background. DS9 was always my favorite Trek, and it's also the show I worked on the most, so I knew more of the writers/producers of that show and it's cast than any other. So it's really great to see this. Now you've done TOS and DS9. I guess you need to do a TNG.

Very glad you dig it. Thanks for helping me with DS9 background early on, back when I started brainstorming. A lot of folks agree with you -- that DS9 is their favorite of all the Trek incarnations. Myself, I'll always love the original series best.
