Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation Crossover!

Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation?

Together?

Make it so!

No, we haven’t been at the Romulan ale again – BleedinDoctor Who-Star Trek crossover courtesy of IDWg Cool are reporting that IDW, the comic book company that specialise in licensed products, are to meld together both worlds in a crossover series due to be published in May – with more details expected to be announced next week at the Gallifrey One convention.

Doctor Who isn’t one to ‘engage’ in any such crossovers unless you count the God awful Dimensions in Time where the show melded with the multi-faceted world of EastEnders like bone china melds with machine gun fire.

The only other incident of universe hopping crossovers is the Doctor’s appearance in the Marvel UK series Death’s Head, itself related to that of… The Transformers!

However this isn’t the first time the Doctor has been mentioned in the Federation’s universe. In the episode “The Neutral Zone” an onscreen graphic of the resurrected Clare Raymond’s family tree revealed her descendants to be none other than the first six Doctors – while in “I, Borg” there’s a reference to the Argolis Cluster, named after the planet seen in The Leisure Hive.

There was also a reference to the Sonic Screwdriver in “The Naked Now” as well as a brace of references across the whole Star Trek universe in various novels such as “My Enemy, My Ally” and “Ishmael“.

Potential mash ups? Could we be about to see the Borg and the Cyberman face off or will we discover Data is in fact a later model of Kamelion? All is to be revealed soon…

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    A Star Trek cross-over would be fine! As for me, myself I am still paying good money for a possible cross-over with ‘Transformers”

    Remember RTD wanted a Who/Trek crossover but poor old Enterprise was scuttled by then…but in theory this should be good…maybe the Cybermen will turn up and sue the Borg for stealing their IP…

    Chief O’Brian in Deep Space Nine has been known to ‘reverse the polarity’ – a phrase invented by Pertwee.
