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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
It's just excellent seeing The Doctor & Captain Jean-Luc Picard interact, I hope 'Sir' Patrick Stewart & Matt Smith read this and enjoy it as much as me....better yet any of the cast of both these classicly brilliant TV Shows should read and smile with pride at what they themselves help creat. I knw I would be proud :).
There are a number of different styles employed in the artistry in this book, some more or less cartoonish or realist and a lot of it has impressive pen and inks, like a series of painted artworks.
The covers included at the finish are great but they dont all depict scenes which actually happen in the comic, or they depict scenes which dont happen as the covers suggest they do which is a little odd.
The action depicted in the book begins as two seperate tales, which then converge, in the Star Trek universe the Borg are attacking a planet under federation protection but appear to have allies unheard of or unseen before now, while the most recent Dr. with his companions Rory and Amy is battling through ancient Egypt and decides to travel some place for respite.
The characterisations are good, they have succeeded in transposing the most recent Dr. to the page very well, even some of the more cliched (by this point) and annoying dialogue (this is part of why I did not rate the book very highly). The same can be said for the Star Trek component too, it is very faithful to the source material too but also reproduces a lot of cliches.
The story of how the cybermen made first contact with the Borg or the Star Trek universe is not really developed, there is a flash back to an earlier (classic) Trek and earlier (Tom Baker) Dr. (roll the jelly baby cliche) but this is all mystery too, the Cybermen appear sort of weak, while they are an earlier incarnation they have no ability to kill with touch, do not appear to be very strong (Kirk bests one in a fist fight).Read more ›
