Background information

  • Cover artist Jerome K. Moore illustrated this cover as a vignette, allowing the edges to fade and bleed out. The 'honeycomb' pattern in the background is meant to suggest the transporter room, with McCoy higher up to imply a platform step. Moore used Kirstie Alley's likeness for R.J. Blaise, but editor Robert Greenberger was legally obliged to have another artist draw in a different face. [1]
