New covers from across the Trekverse

Several new covers for a variety of forthcoming releases have been revealed. StarTrek.com posted the cover for The Crimson Shadow, Una McCormack's Cardassian focused TNG novel, and second book in The Fall series, due out in October:


StarTrek.com also posted a new blurb:
Cardassia Prime is home to a prideful people who, for centuries, forged alliances with those they believed would strengthen them and their place in the Alpha Quadrant, and expanded their empire at great cost to other worlds. For generations, dissenting voices were silenced either by fear or an early grave. When their wartime ally, the Dominion, suddenly turned on them, seeking to transform Cardassia into a tomb for every last member of their race, their old adversary—the United Federation of Planets—put an end to the carnage, and even now works to help rebuild Cardassia Prime.

To celebrate this alliance, the Castellan of the Cardassian Union is to welcome the Federation president to Cardassia Prime. As a symbol of this deepening friendship, the U.S.S. Enterprise-E is tasked to carry the Cardassian ambassador to the Federation back home. For his part, Ambassador Elim Garak is working with Captain Jean-Luc Picard to oversee the diplomatic reception that will commemorate the last of Starfleet’s personnel finally leaving the homeworld. However, there are malevolent forces at work, who even now strive to “restore Cardassia to its proper place and glory,” and are willing to do anything to achieve their goal...

StarTrek.com also revealed the retailer incentive cover for the first issue of the forthcoming Khan prequel comic series, which is also due out in October:


Meanwhile in Germany, Amazon.de has posted covers for the 2014 German Star Trek calendar, which came out yesterday, and focuses on Into Darkness:


The back cover has some unusual details: One of the images appears to be a real world shot of the cast. While the image that forms the background, at a glance the Enterprise, is not the nuTrek Enterprise - It is in fact Gabriel Koerner's reimagined Enterprise design, first seen in Ships of the Line 2007, and frequently mistaken for the nuEnterprise ever since!

Finally, StarTrek.com also released artwork for a series of new TOS DVD season box sets, which will apparently be coming soon as a Best Buy exclusives in August:
