Dr Who and Star Trek now to have an official Crossover

Filed under: Interesting Sites,Tech Related — Suramya @ 10:38 PM

Dr Who and Star Trek are my two favorite shows and even though there have been numerous fan fiction titles where the two cross over, there was no official cross over till now…. 🙂 In May IDW is going to publish a Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover series. I am definitely going to go buy the books when they come out. I have read the Star Trek cross overs with X-Men and a couple of others but I believe this one is going to be the best.

Make it… 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, Geordi LaForge, Deanna Troi, 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. Then there was Death’s Head who kinda popped in and out. Star Trek has also seen comic book crossovers with X-Men and the Legion Of Superheroes. But this is the first time that two such major competing TV sci-fi franchises have been allowed to merge in any way before.


Maybe there is hope for an official Star Trek & Star Wars crossover?
