The Doctor to meet Captain Picard

The Doctor to meet Captain Picard

Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the Doctor Who forum, so I flipped a coin.

Two of the biggest sci-fi titles of all-time — Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation — will join forces in their first officially commissioned comic-book crossover. Released by IDW Publishing, Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2 will launch in May. In the eight-issue series, the Doctor and his companions will team up with Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise against an unholy alliance between the Borg and the Cybermen. Scott and David Tipton, the authors behind Star Trek: Infestation, will be assisted by Doctor Who writer Tony Lee, with artwork by J.K. Woodward.


It'll be hard to get the tone right on this, I fear, with the two shows each having their own distinct atmosphere and mythology. But I'd be interested to see it nonetheless.
