This cover is the product of a suggestion by my awesome sister-in-law, Melanie. I enjoyed Marina Sirtis' performance as Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation, especially in episodes where she would interact with Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, who played her mother Lwaxana. It's too bad Troi wasn't given more to do in the Next Generation films, though. I feel she was a bit underutilized in all of them.
Raven has one of my favorite George Perez-designed costumes. The unique shape of the cape and cloak lend motion to the character and give her a cool silhouette. It's no wonder that it has endured since her first appearance.
