5.0 out of 5 stars Beam me up Vworp Vworp 3 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this out of curiosity being a fan of both shows but not really a big reader of graphic novels. I was extremely suprised by just how good a read this was. It captures both shows extremely well, you can hear the 11th Doctor, you can hear Picard and as for the quality of the artwork it's nothing short of beautiful. I also loved the flashback to an earlier Enterprise and an earlier Doctor which is presented in the style of a 1970's comic strip. Took me right back to my childhood. A brilliant concept which is executed beautifully. Counting down the days to volume 2 in January

5.0 out of 5 stars Whovians & Trekkies rejoice! 15 May 2013
By R. Wood TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Crossovers between two world-famous properties are nothing new. We've seen them happen many times over the years, where the most-impossible, dream-meetings that fans have wanted to see...have actually happened.

For instance, Disney & Final Fantasy crossed over to produce Kingdom Hearts, Marvel has actually clashed with the likes of DC and Capcom, Spider-Man has teamed up with Batman & Superman, Star Trek has crossed over with X-Men; among many more incredible tales. There's been tremendous success with franchises crossing-over, and last-year the latest `dream-pairing' finally happened.

Doctor Who and Star Trek. Two of the most popular science-fiction franchises to have ever emerged. There's been so much fan-art, fan-fiction & ace videos on YouTube envisioning of what such a meeting between the Time Lord and the USS Enterprise would entail.

And now, it's official. Star Trek: The Next Generation actually meets Doctor Who in Assimilation2, an eight-part story boasting beautiful artwork and fine writing, both of which pays equal respect to both franchises, and brings them together in a plausible, epic & logical setting.

It's the usual daily dose of adventuring for both crews of the USS Enterprise & the TARDIS. Then the Doctor, Amy & Rory bump into Commander Riker, Data and Doctor Crusher in 1941 San Francisco. Actually, the TARDIS and her crew materialises right in the middle of a simulation on board the Enterprise's holodeck! As the Doctor & his companions acquaint themselves with Captain Jean-Luc Picard & his crew, they soon find themselves ambushed by the ultimate nightmarish alliance of the Borg & the Cybermen.

While Assimilation2 may sound basic so far, it certainly doesn't feel cheap or lazy.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable adventure 19 Sep 2013
By Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Issues #1-4 of IDW's mini-series featuring a Star Trek: The Next Generation / Doctor Who crossover comic is collected as Star Trek: The Next Generation / Doctor Who: Assimilation 2 Volume 1 (Star Trek/Doctor Who). The premise is fairly simple, the Borg, aided by the Cybermen, launch an unstoppable attack on a Federation planet. Meanwhile, in Ancient Egypt, the Doctor, Amy and Rory are tracking down an escaped alien prisoner. After successfully completing their mission and saving Earth from destruction, they set off for San Francisco in the 1940s for a rest. Arriving there, they step into a bar where they see an android in a pin-stripe suit... Back in the Federation, the Enterprise is visiting a water world where the federation is mining for rare minerals - and somebody needs to explain to TV SF scriptwriters the difference between minerals, elements, and just exactly what the Periodic Table means - where they have a little adventure. They recuperate by visiting the Holodeck, where a new Dixon Hill adventure awaits them; you know, the one set in San Francisco in the 1940s...

Imagine our surprise when the two teams meet up on the Holodeck, just as the distress call from the world under attack by the CyBorg comes in. As they dash off to investigate, the Doctor starts to get flashes of apparent `false memories' that allow him to recognise races and history from the Star Trek universe. Imagine the Enterprise crew's surprise when they find the Cybermen in the ship's log, from the day's of Captain Kirk - when he and his crew encountered the Cybermen and Tom Baker back in the Federation's past - which we get to see in flashback. Obviously, something is merging/crossing timelines.

1.0 out of 5 stars UNREADABLE 26 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Looked good in the store and, having read of the series in many reviews, I was looking forward to it.
So, imagine; the art work is marvellous, shown to great effect on the Kindle screen. But that's it. I can't read the 'speech bubbles', and can't manipulate the screen to enlarge the text. Pretty, but pointless.

3.0 out of 5 stars You will be assimilated 3 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a pretty good story however it is let down by the poor graphics, at times the artwork actually detracts from the story. This is probably a book only for die-hard trek and who fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Assimilation Volume 1 15 Nov 2013
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
On Delta IV, in the United Federation of Planets, Stardate 45635.2, there is an invasion - but this time, it's not just the Borg. But this time, a mysterious blue box has also appeared on the Enterprise - but has the Doctor been here before?

This is great stuff - the Star Trek universe has been captured perfectly, and the narrative and voices of the characters is spot on. The Doctor, with Amy and Rory are pretty good, and it seems right that they seem just a little out of step with the Star Trek universe they find themselves in. The storyline is great - with a backstory which features an earlier Doctor, and a cliffhanger which paves the way to the next instalment of the story.

Really, what more could anyone want? Star Trek, the Borg, Cybermen AND the Doctor! Definitely recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, if you can suspend a few reservations
Great artwork, slightly out of character phrases in places, but that's to be expected I suppose. Nice touch having the flash back to some original series/fourth doctor story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great mashup
A great mashup of two sci-fi greats. The Borg and Cybermen make the perfect foes together, and the story makes full use of the timey-wimey effects of Doctor Who`s storylines.
