    1. David Brin writes great Trek producing a classy piece of sci-fi at the same time. He takes a chunk of Star trek science - transporter and holotechnology - and asks the questions that make you think about how society would react to it on different levels and standpoints. It's the sort of thing Brin is very accomplished at in novels like the fascinating 'Kil'n People'. If that's not recommendation enough then Scott Hampton's superb painted visuals should satisfy any collector of great comic book a [...]


    2. Perhaps even more so than the story itself, the strength of an adaption is largely measured by its ability to capture and recreate the essence of its "parent" franchise. Some mediums do better with this than others, but if Forgiveness is any indication, the TV to Graphic Novel transition is pretty smooth. This book very much feels like an episode of The Next Generation. There's a scientific mystery to be solved and the theme of hope is prevalent throughout the story.While the Federation is at wa [...]


    3. Although David Brin is an accomplished and popular writer I was mostly interested in this book to see how Scott Hampton interpreted the ST:TNG universe. I've enjoyed Hamptonb's work on many other projects (like Batman: Night Cries, for example) prior to this and wasn't sure how his style would mesh with the hi-tech world of the 24th century. As it turns out, they mesh pretty well. There were some shaky parts, sure, but Hampton knocks it out of the poark more often than he drops the ball. Brin's [...]


    4. David (Postman) Brin writes a Star Trek graphic novel and it's not bad it's not that great either it's just sort of okay. A bit clever and a bit predictable, it takes place during the Dominion War.It was as if a few different Trek stories merged into this, so to that it seems Brin was on point. If you like someone to mix the TNG formula to make a new tale which reads like an old one, you'll like it. But if you're looking for something more you'll just find it passable, as I did.The art is remark [...]


    5. my idea of a good star trek novel/movie/comic is one that makes me think it is an episode i missed of the series. forgiveness is one of those


    6. Good story, though the transporter thing seems somewhat improbable, based on what I know of transporter systems. The painted illustrations were a nice change of pace from the usual comic style.
