This May, the worlds of Doctor Who and Star Trek will collide in comic book form with an all-new series coming to IDW Publishing.
The 8-issue series, called Star Trek TNG/Doctor Who: Assimilation2, will see the two scifi powerhouse franchises together for the first time in comic book form when The Doctor teams up with Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Star Trek The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2 will be written by Scott and David Tipton (Star Trek: Infestation), with help from longtime Doctor Who writer Tony Lee, and will feature fully painted artwork by J.K. Woodward (Fallen Angel). The comic will see the villainous Borg and Cybermen joining forces against our heroes. Check out the full cover here below.
Launching in May, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/DOCTOR WHO: ASSIMILATION2 will feature fan-favorite villains the Borg and the Cybermen as they create an unholy alliance resulting in potential disaster for all humanity. Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise find themselves joining forces with the Doctor and his companions, with the fate of the galaxy hanging in the balance.
Star Trek TNG/Doctor Who: Assimilation2 #1, which will be 32 full-color pages, will be available in stores in May 2012. Along with the standard cover will be a rare wraparound photo cover edition, as well as a variant cover featuring the Doctor and friends aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise by artist Joe Corroney (Star Trek Ongoing).
