Re: Crossovers

I'd kill to see Star Trek Vs Aliens...
I always thought Debt of Honor was pretty close.

I'd like to see a crossover between Star Trek and Doctor Who
It's long out of print, but look for Paul Magrs & Jeremy Hoad's eighth Doctor novel, The Blue Angel.

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 son.
Actually, Aaron passed Spock off as his nephew, Ish. Aaron wasn't married at the time, so it would have raised quite a few eyebrows if he'd claimed Spock as his son.

I love Star Trek/Doctor Who crossovers, but they're not easy to get right. I would absolutely not want to have a ST/SW crossover.

The funniest crossover comics I ever read were the Who Was That Monolith I Saw You With? books. The main "characters" were the Enterprise, the Monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey, a Klingon ship, an asteroid, and a space-dwelling Loch Ness Monster.

Star Trek/Highlander would work beautifully, since the groundwork for that was made possible by the "Requiem For Methuselah" episode.

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(?)?
you what?

the Daleks are these guys:

Re: Crossovers

Speaking of crossovers, I wished, at the time, that Paramount had done a crossover between TNG and War of the Worlds when they were airing in syndication at the same time. I had dreams of the Enterprise-D finding the aliens homeworld, and the crew getting taken over by the aliens. That would have been awesome.

Never happened. Dammit. :/

Back when Alien Nation was on the air, I sometimes thought it would be nice if it could be integrated into the Trek universe somehow, since it had similar sensibilities in its examinations of human nature, prejudice, etc.

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.

Star Trek/DW has more or less been done numerous times on both sides - you could easily make the spaceship crew in Planet Of Evil a Starfleet crew, or replace Guinan in Time's Arrow with the Doctor, with only minor rewriting.

Stargate would work better as a DW or Torchwood crossover than with Trek (come on, a cliffhanger with Daleks flooding through the Gate would be fab!)

Highlander would work, but I'd really like to see a Buffy (or Angel)/Highlander crossover more than a Trek one...

Re: Crossovers

I have to admit I'm not a big fan of crossovers (especially of franchises owned by different entities). I think the chances are always high that a story suffers when it has to serve two different masters so to speak. One example for that was the TNG/X-Men crossover novel, which was a decent read, but it felt like Friedman had to play it safe when it came to the plot to please both owners, and so it wasn't an overly original novel IMO.

Re: Crossovers

How about a Trek/Wars story in the style of the Marvel/DC Amalgam label? Starring Jean-Luc Skywalker, Han Sulu, Obi-Wan Chakotay and Princess Organa Nerys battling the evil Sith Dominion?

Also starring Seven of Ninepio, Artoo-Datatoo and the furry Chekbacca?

Re: Crossovers

Somehow I'm put in mind of an episode of the Real Ghostbusters animated series, in which the crew of a haunted space station were all pastiches of the TOS crew.

Re: Crossovers

With holodeck/suite tech, I always thought it would be cool to have Worf fight Angel or Buffy or what would be cool is have Prynn from DS9R taking part in a Star Wars battle flying an x wing given how passionate she is for flying!
