Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation Comic Book Cross-Over Coming In May

This is a match made in the Tardis!

Looks like in May, from comic book publisher IDW Publishing, we are getting a Doctor Who/Star Trek: The Next Generation cross-over.

Now this marks the first of its kind for Doctor Who, who hasn’t previously appeared outside of his own Universe, I believe, while Stark Trek has on more than one occasion.

Still, what’s gonna happen when the likes of the Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory the Roman meet up with Number One, Data, Warf, Geordie – and Jean Luc Picard!


Or better yet – Geronimo!

And will the Enterprise be able to take down a bunch of Daleks?! Likewise, will the Borg try to assimilate the Doctor?! Who knows who is gonna show!

Should be fun.

A few more details have become known.

New Star Trek TV Series By Bryan Singer and Brian Fuller Possible

star trekJust last night I was watching the first episode of ST:TNG on Netflix and thought to myself, “When are we getting another Star Trek TV Series?!”

Well, AICN spoke with Bryan Fuller about the new Munsters TV series, which is going to be called “Mockingbird Lane,” with Fuller mentioning just that.

The pilot to “Mockingbird Lane” is being directed by Bryan Singer, and Fuller explained that both he and Singer have talked about doing a Star Trek TV Series.

Here’s the blurb:

By the way, Fuller tells AICN exclusively that the two Bryans, who have long (but separately) contemplated new “Star Trek” TV series, have discussed the possibility of pooling their resources to take a new corner of Gene Roddenberry’s multiverse to the small screen. Hopefully J.J. Abrams and Les Moonves will give them the keys to Starfleet HQ.

Fuller is no stranger to the Star Trek Universe as he previously wrote and co-produced for Deep Space Nine and Voyager, in addition to writing for Heroes as well as Pushing Daises. Of course Bryan Singer is known for X-Men: First Class and a host of other good movies and shows. 

Sounds like the Star Trek TV Series will be in good hands if it ever gets off the ground. Here’s hoping.
