In 1963 a BBC production by the name of Doctor Who
premiered and just four years later Star Trek would premiere on
NBC. Little did anyone know that these two shows would continue for
so long or become such a part of the cultural zeitgeist. Yet
the two franchises would not be brought together till 2012 in the
form of a comic crossover.
In this episode of Literary Trek
hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about the Star Trek: The
Next Generation and Doctor Who
crossover comic, Assimilation². We discuss the
post Wolf 359 Federation, the timeline of the story, being a Doctor
Who fan verses a novice, whether Guinan is part Time Lord, the art,
crossovers and give our ratings.
For our news segment we judge the covers for
Atonement, Star Trek Costumes and Child of Two Worlds, then review
Ongoing #45 and New Visions Resistance.
