Default Star Trek TNG/Doctor Who Assimiliation2

Am I the only person psyched for this series? I mean, it's the two greatest and longest-running Science Fiction TV franchises crossing over (albeit in comic form). And even though it's TNG and 11th Doctor focused, some of the previews have suggested that there will be flashbacks of a "forgotten history" between the Doctor and the Federation- like the 4th hanging out with Kirk.

I mean, even if it ends up sucking, it'll still be incredible cool simply for what it is.

Yeh, it should be fun. I'm not a massive Trek fan, but my god do I love me some Tony Lee penned Dr Who comics! From what I've heard he's not really written much, more advised the other guys about stuff, so I dunno, it might be awful...

I've also heard that it's supposed to lead into the new Dr Who ongoing wirtten by Andy Diggle, so that should be interesting...

I started a thread about this a while, and nobody commented. Glad somebody else is excited for it.

30th May I believe is when it's out, I really am looking forward to it, as gamingboy said, even if only for what it is!

Read the first issue from digital download yesterday (and I rarely buy first day digital, usually wait a few weeks for the price to go down). And it is quite good. The art style by Woodward really works, it's almost Alex Ross-like. And the writing is good as well, especially the scenes with 11 and the Ponds, I could really hear the voices of Smith, Gillan and Darvill in there, and the captions for each of the characters were hilarious (I'm paraphrasing here: "The Doctor. Time Lord. Time Travelling Adventurer. Madman with a box." "Rory Williams. Husband. Nurse. Occasional Roman soldier.")

Only real complaint is that the TNG crew doesn't really show up, but in some ways that works. Instead, most of the Star Trek stuff is (SPOILERS THAT ARE SO OBVIOUS EVEN FROM THE PREVIEW PAGES THAT I'M NOT BOTHERING TO COVER THEM UP) the Borg and Cybermen attacking a Federation planet. However, in some ways this works: Trek has it's constant universe where 98% of all of it's stories take place (as opposed to Who, where by it's very nature it's a different time period or planet every week or two), so by setting up the Federation it serves as a good way of getting anybody who isn't a big Trek fan up to speed.

For the curious who haven't read it yet but want to know how it ends, read the spoiler:
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
After catching a interdimensional fugitive in Ancient Egypt using some sort of interdimensional imprisoning device thing, 11 and the companions are leaving in the TARDIS. However, the Doctor looks into the interdimensional device and has visions of the Cybermen and the Borg. He doesn't mention this to the Ponds. The TARDIS then materializes in 1940s San Francisco, which the Doctor notes was often depicted in old pulp and crime magazines. He says they could have no idea what they may see... and then points out that there's an android in the bar they just walked into. The android, of course, is Data, and it appears that Riker and Beverly Crusher are with him. That's how the issue ends. My guess is that the TARDIS has landed on the holodeck.

For awhile it was smoking hot on The Market's modern age comics heating up. I sold a few for $20+. I have one copy left, the Hasting variant. So really this comic has done amazingly well and exceeded many peoples expectations.

Issue 2 picked things up. The cover to issue 3 is interesting...

It's the 11th Dr, so Matt Smith. There's been a flash back with Tom Baker, because apparently everyone loves Tom...
