Star Trek and Doctor Who Together

Well, I may be behind (as it always seems to be the case), but wow, interesting idea of combining characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation with those from Doctor Who.  True!  But it’s in comic book form, only.  Still, it kind of makes sense to mash up these two fandomizations, as popular as they are.

Here’s what the LA Times had to say:

Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise are striking an alliance with The Doctor and his TARDIS-traveling companions in a comic series from IDW –”Star Trek TNG/Doctor Who: Assimilation2.”

In the eight-part comic, the two transatlantic titans of television are teaming up against a villain pairing that threatens to destroy the galaxy: Cybermen and the Borg.

The series is co-written by Scott and David Tipton (who helmed “Star Trek: Infestation,” which follows a zombie epidemic in a Star Fleet colony) and Tony Lee, the longtime “Doctor Who” writer.
