Another revision, i think this is optimized now for speed and (non)visibility 
of dos window:

start "convert" /min "C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\bin\gimp-console-2.6.exe" 
-i -d -f -b "(save-as-jpg "\"usgs.png\"" 0.7 "\"usgs.jpg\"")" -b "(gimp-quit 0)"

So I am using the dos Start command now, for its nice /min option.
I use that, as well as /wait option for as close to silent installs as 
possible, so worked well here.
I'm still wondering if  the 10 seconds it takes to run can be improved.  Its 
converting a 53mb png to jpg.
