Re: Crossover with other franchises?

I'd have loved a Trek:Hellraiser.

Would have given the Borg a run for their money.

Re: Crossover with other franchises?

Anybody interested in a Star Trek: TNG / Survivor crossover? What would Worf do to become the Sole Survivor? Or perhaps Star Trek: Voyager / Amazing Race? Can Tom and B'Elanna handle the stress of the Race and each other? Maybe Data and the Doctor could try out for the X-Factor? What about Bashir showing off on America's Got Talent?

TNG and Survivor would never work, since the latter is about pitting people against each other and encouraging their most venal, selfish natures, but Starfleet officers would understand that the real key to survival is cooperation.

As for Voyager/The Amazing Race, didn't they already do that in "Drive?"

Perhaps my greatest desire would be to see some kind of Star Trek / Aliens crossover. I'm not certain of the generation, but it would be interesting to see how the Federation would respond to the Alien species.

Yep, Picard wouldn't be talking them into a settlement!

I've never thought about that, but I do have a TNG/Predator outline in my files.

Re: Crossover with other franchises?

Taran'atar did fight an alien that appears to be a Xenomorph in one of the DS9R books, I can't remember for sure which. That would indicate that something similar to them does exist in the Trekverse.

Not really, since he fought it in a holosuite program. The xenomorph simulation could've simply been a holographic adaptation of a classic 20th-century monster movie, in the same way that Data had a Sherlock Holmes program and Tom Paris had Captain Proton.

Well there are already 2 hunter species in Star Trek (1 in DS9 and the Hirogen) and the Klingons like to hunt too. So I don't think that a ST/Predator crossover would be that unique.

Thinking about crossovers, what about Earth Final Conflict/Andromeda.

Hm, the Hirogen *are* the Predators to a degree that I fear would make an actual Predator appearance kind of superfluous...

You can't have nauseatingly nice people in Survivor - you need people who have at least one personality flaw (that said - in season 1, Colleen's personality flaw was that she was too nice). However, I did run across a Doctor Who/Survivor story a long time ago, and it was quite well done, with a twist ending I'd certainly never have expected.

I'd put Worf on Big Brother, though, or possibly The Amazing Race. After all, those require social skills and dexterity a lot more than sheer brute strength. And the idea of Amazing Race is to see something of the different locations, learn about local customs, etc.

Does Bashir have any talent besides dressing up nice and playing darts?

Not only do the Hirogen act like the Predators (Yautja is their species/civilization name, isn't it?), but the Nausicaans look like them. So it would be doubly superfluous.

I want Data to play try BBC's modern Sherlock on the holodeck. And have that version of Moriarty come to life and wreak havok...

Except that Star Trek is a work of fiction within the world of Sherlock (John jokingly addressed Sherlock as "Spock" in "The Hounds of Baskerville"), so that would create one heck of a paradox.
