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 ...more
