^No, he's saying that he thinks Doctor Who could've existed as a television show within the Trek universe. He proposed having "one [or] both universes be fiction inside the other."

For example: There is nothing to say that at least the old Dr. Who series did not exist in Trek universe (the new show would not have existed since its creation would fall right into WWIII if I´m not mistaken).
Say what? You must never have seen one of the classic Doctor Who episodes: "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" - the First Doctor, with companions Susan, Ian, and Barbara. It states that in 2164, the Daleks had taken over Earth, and the humans still alive were either slaves to the Daleks, or rebels trying to overthrow them. I don't recall 22nd-century Earth in the Star Trek universe being under the control of cybernetic aliens from the planet Skaro.
To be fair, between Genesis of the Daleks and the Time War, it's unclear if the timeline in which the Daleks conquered 22nd Century Earth still exists or was overwritten.

It just seems logical that the Immortal could so easily be assumed by the Scoobies to be a vampire....

And we saw how well vampire-killing techniques work on Immortals in the series (i.e. not very - Immortal pulls stake out of chest, and exclaims "that bloody *hurt*!")

Anyone ever read an old Trek short story, Visit To a Strange Planet Revisited? Sort of the ultimate crossover.

In a dodgy Cockney accent if it's the Scoobieverse !

In the relevant Highlander episode it was an RP accent...

It's actually "Visit to a Weird Planet Revisited" (reprinted in Star Trek: The New Voyages from Bantam) and as the title suggests, it's a followup to an earlier fanfiction story (by a different author, IIRC) called "Visit to a Weird Planet." The original story has Kirk, Spock, and McCoy beaming down to the Star Trek set, and "Revisited" shows what happened to Shatner, Nimoy, and Kelley aboard the Enterprise during the same incident.

And it's brilliant. The part where Nimoy tries to do a typically Spock bit to Shatner-as-Kirk while on the bridge and then has to leave his post because he's about to crack up laughing is fantastic.

The original story was printed in Spockanalia (I don't remember which issue). Both are a hoot!

If some of those crossovers were real, it would be pretty cool - I love the McCoy-Ironside one!

Re: Crossover with other franchises?

There's a really cool bit of "Crossovers" in Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes. At one point the grand villain boasts about all the other Time Travellers he's beaten and he takes Kirk and the Legionnaires to a big room full of little easter eggs to other shows. (Stargate, Doctor Who, The Time Machine, Sliders, Hot Tub Time Machine all get a lithe reference. There are a few others I didn't know.) I just got the hardcover of the story. It's pretty good, and I thought it was a novel way to have two series crossover that really don't have too many reasons to. (Though, Vulcans have been seen as GLs in the DC Universe from back when they had the comics license.)

Am I the only one here who views Firefly/Serenity as a prequel to Dune?

What else could work? Farscape/Lost in Space? Godzilla/Transformers?
