I disagree. It felt like the equivalent for Who fans who aren't familiar with TNG (though I would bet that this is a much smaller number of people than TNG fans who aren't familiar with Who); it introduces us to the main characters pretty nicely.
I've really enjoyed the first two issues; the Tiptons really do a good job of capturing everyone's voices. It feels very natural for two franchises which shouldn't fit together well at all. I can't wait to see what happens now that the action is starting.
