Doctor Who in the Star Trek universe
 
My simple theory is that the Peter Cushing films are part of the Trek universe - but does that work? I mean, I'm not overly knowledgable on Trek yet. The second one was set in 2150, when the Daleks invaded Earth.

I just think these beasts suit Trek, especially TOS:

No, the Cushing movies depict a very different 22nd century than Star Trek does.

Shouldn't the question be the other way round: Trek in the Who universe? After all, Who covers the whole of space and time, Trek is limited to one galaxy across a few hundred years... ;-)

Is that a pic from the actual moive, they look more like CGI, although the movie Daleks were colourful they look too detailed in that pic to be from the movies, plus i am sure the bases were black instead of gold, but i could be wrong, its been a while since i watched them.

Right. Star Trek: Enterprise begins in 2151, just a year after the second Cushing movie is supposedly set.

Both series have the concept of a multiverse (Time tracks/e-space/etc in Who), so I see no reason why they can't peacefully coexist. :D Just not in the same timeline.

Perhaps because modern Who has repeatedly referenced Star Trek as a work of fiction? (But then, in "Remembrance of the Daleks" the original series came within one second of referencing itself as a work of fiction...)

The Cushing movies are not part of Who canon.

That answers that one then!

And in a recent comic strip series, the Doctor managed to visit the Enterprise and work with its crew.

Well, it's possible that's a CG render, but at that resolution, it's hard to determine (at least for me).

However, I will state with reasonable confidence that the red and black Daleks in the first movie did have gold "bumpers". I just ran a Google search and found a few shots that show full length shots of the TechniColor PepperPots. Here's a link...

No, they really aren't part of Who canon. In those movies, Cushing plays a character actually named "Doctor Who" who is actually a human inventor.

My theory is the Cushing films take place in Pete's Universe and Doctor Who is 10.5.

They do look like they could work in TOS if you took TOS as an entity on its own ignoring the series that follow. Daleks aren't so unlike Nomad.
