IDW Star Trek /Doctor Who: Assimilation2 #5

The two greatest science-fiction properties of all time cross over for the first time in history, in Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2! Captain Jean-Luc Picard faces one of the most difficult decisions of his life, but the fate of the galaxy may depend on it! Can the Doctor convince him to make the correct choice?

*** COVER SUBJECT TO CHANGE ***

Launching in May, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/DOCTOR WHO: ASSIMILATION2 will feature fan-favorite villains the Borg and the Cybermen as they create an unholy alliance resulting in potential disaster for all humanity. Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise find themselves joining forces with the Doctor and his companions, with the fate of the galaxy hanging in the balance.This eight-issue series will be written by Scott and David Tipton, the authors of critically acclaimed Star Trek: Infestation, with a helping hand from longtime Doctor Who writer Tony Lee, and will feature fully painted artwork by J.K. Woodward (Fallen Angel).

    I love both Dr Who and Star Trek but personally Dr Who will always be my favorite Sci-fi series of all time. I per-ordered the full volume of the comics off Forbiden planet and it’s being released in September, I think. Can’t wait till it arrives.

    I’m so excited I love both Star Trek & Doctor Who, Shame its not Voyager though I was in love with Janeway as a nipper.

    Nice cover, except one small minor error, the window frames on the Tardis doors are not white which they should be as they are white again in Doctor Who rather then blue with the rest of the Police Box exterior of the Tardis.

    “The two greatest science-fiction properties of all time cross over for the first time in history, in Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2!” They may be two Sci-Fi shows with huge fan bases, but I really don’t think it’s right to merge their worlds. Especially not if the Ponds will insist on making Star Trek jokes. Just leave them in their own worlds! No need to mix things up. And are these predominantly Star Trek or more Doctor Who?

      It’s not continuity for either of them so I wouldn’t worry, just think of it as a ‘what if’ kinda story.

      When it has the staying power of products that have lasted nigh on 50 years Star Wars might be considered
