Vanguard: Declassified — the cover!

The final cover of Star Trek Vanguard: Declassified has been, well, declassified!

As with the previous Vanguard covers, the art is by the awesome Doug Drexler. And yes, for those die-hard fans with long memories and a love for the work of the late great Franz Joseph, that is indeed a Ptolemy-class tug depicted in the foreground, as seen of FJ’s seminal Star Fleet Technical Manual from 1975. Specifically it’s the U.S.S. Al Rashid, alphabetically the first on FJ’s list of ships in that class.

The novellas included herein are:

Almost Tomorrow by Dayton Ward

Hard News by Kevin Dilmore

The Ruins of Noble Men by Marco Palmieri

The Stars Look Down by David Mack

And lest I forget to say it, it’s absolutely thrilling for me to see my name among those of talented authors who are not only close colleagues, but dear friends.

  1. Congratulations, Marco. What a great-looking cover—especially since it has your name featured on it. Looking forward to seeing your novella, THE RUINS OF NOBLE MEN, in print.

    • Cheers, David. It’s still a little surreal seeing it there, but it feels good.
