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

The thing is, the ST universe is so radically different from the DW universe in terms of history, aliens, etc, that the only way the Doctor could conceivably meet Archer/Kirk/Picard/Sisko/Janeway would be if he travelled sideways in time out of his home reality into the Trek one, like he did in Inferno and Rise of the Cybermen (kind of).

Or if the episode was deliberately meant to be inconsistent with both universes.

Or if they just, y'know, ignored it all and got on with the story - both shows have frequently been inconsistent with themselves (where's Cochrane from, again? How many times has Atlantis been destroyed?)

Why the hell would you guys want a Doctor Who crossover with Enterprise?

That just sounds awful.
Are you kidding? It would probably have been one of the most delightful ENT stories ever! Why, RTD might even have found a way to give Reed, Travis, and Hoshi personalities!
ENT is one of the worst shows I've ever seen. I just can't imagine why you'd want to taint Doctor Who with that garbage
I can't think of a single way to make it mesh successfully either.
