Re: Dr Who/Star Trek Crossover WAS planned by RTD

you have Doctor Who crossover with Star Trek, not seriously, you could have him trapped on a planet that has based its development on Star Trek, but not an actual crossover. There is no way you could match the timelines.

Yeah, it reminds me way too much of the X-Men/Star Trek novel. Kind of a fun read, but I never ever want to see that kind of nonsense onscreen.
Geez, and people call me a grump

I think you could pull it off with something more obscure like, I dunno...have Doctor Who encounter The Planet Killer or the Crystalline Entity or something...or have him have his own Trouble with Tribbles. Something from the Trek universe without actually getting the characters involved.

Re: Dr Who/Star Trek Crossover WAS planned by RTD

Could have been a disaster, could have been great. I think had RTD written it with Judith and Garfield Reeve-Stevens, it would probably have been the latter.

It would have been a logistical nightmare to make though. Two very different shows made not just in two different countries, but in two different continents, one airing on national UK tv and the other a syndicated US show? You'd probably need the Doctor on the production company to make it work.

Still, The Doctor meeting Dr Phlox would have been fun. Sigh.

Quite right. Doing a Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover wouldn't serve any meaningful dramatic purpose. It would just be to have fun -- a juvenile indulgence the boys at Star Trek were quite above.

Is there some law out there that says that every episode of either series has to be in continuity with every other episode? Is there any particular reason they couldn't do an episode that is intentionally set outside of both Trek and Whoniverse canon? There's really no need to mach up timelines.

ENT aired on the network UPN; it was not syndicated.

Or, the simple solution.

Treat them as two separate universes. We know that the TARDIS can travel into other universes (E-Space, Pete's World).

Or the even simpler solution.

Don't give a shit how they fit together. Let the fanboys have apoplexy and aneurysms trying to figure out how they work. Focus instead of telling a story.

Re: Dr Who/Star Trek Crossover WAS planned by RTD

Screw Star Trek I still want a Who/Blakes 7 crossover!

A Who/Ent crossover would have been ok, but a Who/DS9 crossover...I'd pay to see that.

The prophets might be Eternals for all we know, and Id love to see Tennant and Andrew Robinson bounce off one another!

Re: Dr Who/Star Trek Crossover WAS planned by RTD

A Who/ENT crossover would've been great! Logistically and financially, I don't think it could happen. I don't think they'd have the resources to make it happen, or the financial ability to make it worthwhile for Paramount. Too many obstacles.

Maybe if they made a large budget Dr Who movie? But, if they were to do that, not sure if I'd want it to be a crossover movie. Novels would probably be the best place.

Time War, Temporal Cold War...it could've work. If nothing else the doc playing off T'Pol could have been interesting

Eccleston's Doctor and the season 1 Rose would just have shown how humourless, empty and wooden the cast of Enterprise were.

I would have loved to have seen that!

It could work http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERhu7LUxprs

It would have been the ultimate crossover next to Star Wars/Star Trek crossover.

Id have loved to have seen the Doctor on the Enterprise NX and have it all tied into the Time War, TCW. Would have been great.

Well, just superimpose some Who elements over Assignment: Earth and re-record some of the dialog:
Instant Crossover Episode!

Now someone make a photoshop of David Tennant, or Eccleston if you will, on the Enterprise's Transporter platform with a cat on his arm!
