What you get when you combine 2 of the most influential, famous , and imaginative Sci Fi franchise of all times ? A comic book that will have most collectors clambering for and all but the disinterested fans drooling for and without a doubt be one for the history books. IDW Publishing has announced on Monday Feb 13, 2012 that it will put out a comic with that features the characters of Dr Who and Star Trek The Next Generation. The book will be out in May 2012 with collaborations from BBC Worldwide Consumer Products and CBS Consumer Products, IDW Publishing and is called STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/DOCTOR WHO: ASSIMILATION2 which like I said will feature the TNG crew and Dr Who and companions but will also feature an alliance of Cybermen and the Borg. It will be an 8 issue series that will have Scott and David Tipton, the authors of Star Trek: Infestation, and steady Doctor Who writer Tony Lee,with artwork by J.K. Woodward .
“We are excited about this new adventure for the Doctor and the fact that he will be travelling with Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his iconic crew. This is a perfect partnership for not onlyDoctor Who’s incredible fans, but also for the brand. We have just celebrated our most successful year yet. Doctor Who’s latest season delivered record ratings for BBC AMERICA and it was most downloaded full TV seasons of 2011 in the U.S. on the iTunes Store,” says Soumya Sriraman, executive vice president Home Entertainment and Licensing.
“By joining these two sci-fi powerhouses, fans will be taken on the ultimate adventure through time and space,” said Liz Kalodner, executive vice president and general manager of CBS Consumer Products.
I doubt that this will lead into any more then a comic book crossover but would it not be cool to have members of the TNG on an episode or two Dr Who for the 50th Anniversary ?
