Crossovers

I really want Star Trek to cross over with something. It's such a huge franchise, and huge franchises cross over with each other after they've been at it for a while, right? Marvel and DC comics do it all the time, Jason fought Freddy, the Alien fought the Predator, I mean, it's about time something went down, isn't it? The only crossover I'm aware of that Star Trek has ever done was with the X-Men, and I'm also aware that they did that three times. However, I could do with more. I know it takes a lot to get the right people and get companies to play ball and whatnot, but I believe it should happen. Crossovers are FUN. Anybody agree with me?

Sometimes they don't end up serving either license well, though.

But what about the novel "Ishmael", which crosses over with TV's "Here Come the Brides" (which starred Mark Lenard as Aaron Stemple)? Spock is lost in time, and Aaron Stemple is able to pass him off as his nephew.

Peter David worked with Bill (Will Robinson) Mumy on DC Comics' "Return of the Worthy", which resembled a crossover with "Lost in Space", although using an alien family and their robot.

How about "Dr. Whom Meets Star Wreck"? There have been any number of parody crossovers (unlicensed) in comic form:

There was also an unlicensed book, "The Doctor and the Enterprise", a compilation of magazine instalments for which not even the author, Jean Airey, was paid.

Re: Crossovers

I'd like to see a crossover between Star Trek and Doctor Who and on the big screen too. Seeing the Enterprise fighting a Dalek battle fleet would be a geek delight for the ages.

It might even top seeing the 'Death Star trench' scene from A New Hope in a theater.

I'm afraid I don't know enough about Doctor Who to know what that means. Were the Daleks one of those two societies at nuclear war in the 80s(?)?

Re: Crossovers

John Ordover has said on occasion that a Star Wars crossover was considered in the mid-90s. Pocket and Bantam would each have done a book, telling the story from different perspectives. But it would have been an unofficial, character-obscured crossover, like the Marvel/DC Invaders/Freedom Fighters crossover in 1977.

DC Comics proposed to Paramount a Star Trek/Superman crossover in the early 90s.

There were rumors of other Trek/Marvel crossovers in the wake of Star Trek/X-Men. I remember hearing about a Voyager/Dark Phoenix story, but at the span of ten years I don't remember any more than that.

Re: Crossovers

I read not long ago that Seth MacFarlane would like to do a Family Guy/Star Trek II crossover, along the same lines of last season's Star Wars parody.

Re: Crossovers

I had a cool idea for a Star Trek/Aliens crossover, featuring an all new crew....that way you're never sure who's gonna make it out alive.

Isn't that more a parody than a crossover? And I thought they were actually doing an FG episode with the entire TNG cast guest-starring.

If you're going to split hairs, I'm pissing off.

Yep, although that's with the TNG actors playing themselves. (Although I fully expect Patrick Stewart's character from American Dad to put in a cameo appearance opposite PS himself. )

John Peel and I briefly discussed doing a two-book Trek/Dr Who crossover (i.e. a Dr Who novel with a Trek element, and a Trek novel with a DW element) some years back, but we never took it anywhere, so nothing ever came of it.

Re: Crossovers

For along time I'd wanted to see a Star Trek/Star Wars crossover, but I've lost interest in that as time has gone on. Instead I would love to see a Stargate/Star Trek crossover, I think the two could actually work really well together. And for some reason I was thinking that Star Trek/Farscape could be cool. I honestly don't know where that came form, it just sorta popped into my head. Star Trek/Dr. Who would also work.

Re: Crossovers

You guys should check out the eastern European fanfilm "Start Wreck: In the Pirkinning"
It's kinda the most epic crossover fan film i've seen. Plus for something with oddly translated english subtitles, pretty freaking funny. pretty much the highest quality special effects for something like this I've ever seen too.

It's a B5/Star Trek crossover. There's two versions, the latest has replaced all the ships with original designs since they probably got in trouble, but if you check out the previous version it's got all the actual ships from Trek and B5, Epic.

There was that holosuite scene in Mission: Gamma (I think it was Cathedral, but I don't recall precisely) where Taran'atar is fighting some rather familiar xenomorphs...
