They said it would never happen! Nearly five decades and 1500 episodes in the making! 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!

When the Federation’s most terrifying enemy strikes an unholy alliance with one of the Doctor’s most hated antagonists, the result is devastation on a cosmic scale! Spanning the ends of space and time itself, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise find themselves joining forces with the Doctor and his companions, with the fate of the galaxy hanging in the balance!

Written by Scott and David Tipton, the authors of the critically acclaimed Star Trek: Infestaion, and featuring the beautiful painted artwork of J.K. Woodward (Fallen Angel), this is the adventure that both Trekkers and Whovians have waited for all their lives! Geronimo? Make it so!

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I don’t normally read IDW’s Dr. Who or Star Trek books, but the thought off these two franchises interacting is too much. It’ll be an issue by issue basis – but Dr. who vs. Borg – c’mon!

  2. yeah its just too nerd-tastic-ly tempting to not try at least the first issue. This could be awesome…

  3. Avatar photo MadCowDzz (@DarylFritz) says:

    Is this a one-off? Miniseries?

  4. *Should*. We said it *should* never happen.

    I’ve never been a fan of TNG, but even if it were TOS, I’d still think it’s a bad idea. We need to stop this endless mashing up of geek culture. Or at least keep it on tumblr where it’s mostly out of the way.

  5. This is and eight issue story that I absolutely enjoyed. Im a fan of both properties but I think it reads well enough that you dont have to be a fan of either to enjoy.

  6. My girlfriend saw this cover in my “To Read” pile and said it’s probably the nerdiest thing she’s ever seen.

    As to the comic itself, I liked it! Not much story progression yet, but the Doctor and Picard vs. Cybermen and Borg? Count me in for the long run! The art was damn nice too.
