The Doctor meets Jean-Luc Picard; and it's official!

The only way this could be better is as a T.V. miniseries.

The BORG are Cybermen...just saying.

Well that and if done right it would be the "new" actors playing TOS in an episode of Dr. Who and/or a Tardis in the background of the new movie. Cameos would rock.


Sounds interesting. Sadly I have not enjoyed any of IDW's takes on the Doctor so I probably will not follow though.

I'll believe it when I see it. And unless Moffat's writing it, I'll probably throw up 5 seconds later.

Voice 1: "What was that? Over in Sector 14. It looks like a warp core explosion:

*sounds of tapping, figures looks over a viewer.*

Voice 2: "Jean-Luc Picard just found the 11th incarnation of the Doctor sitting in his chair."

Couldn't they do some past incarnations. I'd love to see Leela murder the inhabitants of the Enterprise. I'd love to see Ace blow the Enterprise up. I'd love to see the Daleks exterminate the Enterprise crew.

Basically, I'd support any crossover that involves the death of the Enterprise crew.

Silver Crusade

You hate the Enterprise crew?

Do not listen to this woman, she's crazy.

Eh, I've picked up the first couple of these. The thing, which is actually a little unusual for me to be the main impetus, which grabbed me was the art. It's really gorgeous and not at all what I expected from IDW, by which I mean IDW has very positively exceeded my expectations.

The plot has been delivered a bit piecemeal, but the characters are written icly and it seems an interesting plot. There are some intimations that the universe Star Trek takes place in and the Whoniverse are definitely two different universes, and that the TARDIS has delivered the Doc and companions into it, where the Doctor starts "remembering" facts about that universe he didn't know before, which I think is a trope that works well given the material.

Apparently while the first couple issues are Eleven, Rory, Amy, and TNG crew, the next issue is going to be Four and TOS crew.

They pretty much would have to be. Also the Whoniverse is a lot less consistent, since after all the Doctor travels in time as well in space and Future Earth varies widely between what era you're talking about although it was 52nd Century that was the "Go To" for Earth future for quite a while, being the home time of both the Silent Crusade and our favorite renegade Time Agent as well as where River Song gets her degree, possibly the Shadow Proclamation as well?. I suspect the century was home to a fair amount of things that the 10th Doctor ran into as well such as Starship Titanic.

Also each producer tends to put his own spin on the verse so it has much less of a "bible" than Trek.

I'm not hating it, but it's def got the same problem as a lot of comics these days in that the story is being drawn out to make it longer. We're three issues in and it easily could have been two.


one must go slowly to draw in fans of the other parts of the crossover...remember the fan base for star trek isnt as strong in britan as it is here....likewise the same for doctor who here in the states...slowing down the story does give the readers time to learn about the characters of the other series. And to build the common personality traits of those characters, like The Doctor's interest in Cmdr. Data.


Yeah, I'm sensing slow pacing but not padding.

Qadira

I hadn't thought about it that way. I guess I'm just looking at how relatively short the series will be and realizing we're already three issues in
