Personally for me this is very exciting news – for 3 Million Years this could also be newsworthy, so I’m posting it here!
Both Doctor Who and Star Trek are available digitally – So you can assume that this will be too. I will find out….
Make itâ€¦ geronimo!
Bleeding Cool has squirrelled out news of an upcoming crossover that might send certain minds reeling. That in May, IDW are to publish a Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover series. Featuring The Doctor, Rory, Amy, Captain Picard, Worf, Data, Geordie LaForge, Deanna Troy, Will Riker and the rest. And that this art, featuring the Doctor, Rory and Amy on the bridge of the Enterprise is a cover that will be used in the series.
Doctor Who has never engaged in any such officially sanctioned crossover outside of the Doctor Who universe before. The closest was Dimensions In Time, a much derided charity telethon show which featured characters from the BBC soap opera Eastenders. Star Trek has also seen comic book crossovers with X-Men and the Legion Of Superheroes. But this is the first time that two major competing sci-fi franchises have been allowed to merge in any way before.
Of course this kind of meeting has been the subject of fan fiction thousands of times. But thereâ€™s a very special something when it becomes official.
IDW is attending the Gallifrey One convention in a weekâ€™s time. Iâ€™d expect this to be announced there.
As to the detailsâ€¦ CyBorgmen? The Klingoon? The Time Lord Continuum? Dorian of the Ferenghi?
