After seeing the picture of the German Heart of the Tiger novel cover, alert reader Swordman mailed me this... it gets stranger and stranger!
I've seen this cover art on another novel that is in no way related to Wing Commander. The story that the cover is from is rather interesting as a human colony is take over by a lizard like race, there forces shoot down a third alien races ship. The survivors are helped by human resistance members and The race is Catlike and some are telepathic. The Cover is of the Human Female main charater and the Alien telepath male main charater. Both are TP bonded to the other. (Closer in mind than Lovers).
