in the Peter David novel Treason, Soleta references running into a person that had a striking resemblance to the 10th doctor.

what other crossover references have there been?
The second and fourth Doctors appear in Ishmael.

Uhura watches a fourth Doctor episode of Doctor Who in My Enemy, My Ally.

There's a Voyager story in the first Strange New Worlds volume in which the Cybermen (called "Mondasians") appear.

Cervantes Quinn stole a "sonic screwdriver" off a strange person, mentioned in Harbinger.

the Lives of Dax is basically a Doctor Who anthology, which each Dax's story corresponding to the equivalent Doctor. The second Dax story is Troughton-esque, the fourth Dax story is like the Hinchliffe/Holmes era, the sixth Dax story is obviously about a mentally unstable, homicidal Dax. And there's a regeneration story, too.

Those are what I remember off-hand.

Which also references Metebelis crystals and time travellers from the Kasterborous galaxy (i.e. where Gallifrey was located).

Uhura watches a fourth Doctor episode of Doctor Who in My Enemy, My Ally.
Except it depicts a scene that never actually existed -- Tom Baker stepping out of the TARDIS and asking, "Pardon me, but is this Heathrow?" The scene in ME,MA involves Uhura and Lt. Freeman converting the episode for holographic playback, which strikes me as rather blasphemous.


Cervantes Quinn stole a "sonic screwdriver" off a strange person, mentioned in Harbinger.
And there's a canonical reference in TNG: "The Naked Now" to a "sonic driver."

And the third is Earthbound. Though that seems like cherrypicking to fit a desired pattern rather than a built-in feature.

I know that Marco has said it wasn't intentional, but the way the stories break down...

First Dax (Lela) -- Rebels and leaves homeworld
Second Dax (Tobin) -- Acts like a jokester
Third Dax (Emony) -- Earthbound and a woman of action
Fourth Dax (Audrid) -- Gothic horror
Fifth Dax (Torias) -- Self-sacrificing
Sixth Dax (Joran Belar) -- Passionate and homicidal
Seventh Dax (Curzon) -- A manipulative bastard

I've blanked on the eighth Dax (Jadzia) story in the book, and the ninth Dax story (Ezri) is a regeneration story.

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

Wow, this is the third ST crossover IDW has done (Infestation, Legion, DW). What's next? Aliens vs. Star Trek? Green Lantern/Star Trek? Indiana Jones Meets Gary Seven? Or perhaps the crossover many fans have debated for decades, Star Trek/Star Wars? Dark Horse has certainly proven that it's willing to work with other companies to do crossover stories.

That's my take on it. As a one-off, why not? It's not like the Daleks are likely to overrun the next Trek movie.

(Although I'd bet good quatloos that the Daleks will go up against the Borg in the comic.)

Wow! I've never bought any of the comics before, but I'm awfully tempted by this one!

I wouldn't expect Daleks for practical reasons; including them would turn a two-way negotiation (the BBC and CBS) into a three-way negotiation (the BBC, CBS, and the Terry Nation estate).

That sort of thing just jars with me - it takes me out of the universe and makes me aware I am just reading a story. The two universes are just too different to me - Aliens vs My Little Pony if you like.

Yes, it's just fun, and I can just chose not to read it, but I am curious dammit !

I'm sure there are some readers who never get deeply sucked into any stories. What's wrong with just reading a story?

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

I believe Soleta references the Tenth Doctor again in Blind Man's Bluff when she meets The Doctor with Seven.

Okay, the Borg vs. the Cyberman maybe?

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

^ I was going to quote your previous post and suggest that Borg v Cybermen would have been a better fit.

Klingons and Sontarans?
