Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

I originally thought Borg/Daleks...but yeah the Cybermen would work with the Borg. Depending on what season of TNG the story takes place, they could use the Romulans as well. TNG doesn't really have a lot of villains on a large scale to pick from IMO. Klingons perhaps but again depends on the season setting.

Well, what's wrong with that every once in a while? There's a grand tradition of telling stories that are overtly "unreal" within the context of the series they take place in. Comics have imaginary stories, sitcoms have dream-sequence episodes, etc. It can be fun to explore the occasional non-binding variant on a universe even if you usually prefer to treat it as "real."

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

If it's anything like the Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes crossover, they'll make it work. The two realities merged in a very clever way indeed IMO.

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

I don't know, I typically do not go for outrageous crossovers as I feel it's too much in one go. I like Dr Who and grew up watching that series and reading Legion of Super Heroes. But that doesn't mean I want them all together in one edition.

I'm much more annoyed by the article's spelling of names like "Deanna Troy" and "Ferenghi." No one could spare two seconds to check some terms in a search engine?

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

Despite my unhappyness with popculture references I'm fine with crossovers, I know what to expect going in after all ... this looks like it could be fun.

Or calling LaForge a "Geordie." Last time I looked, he didn't have Cheryl Cole's accent.

Our biggest morning newspaper has a weekly colour magazine insert that encourages reader reviews of current books, films, TV shows, plays, sent in via mobile phone - and/but... they print them with every texting contraction, exactly as sent. Do we really need to keep formalizing such gr8 evolutions of the English language?

No worries there. I won't. But I will post my opinion whether you agree with it or not.

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

As I said in the Doctor Who forum, this is awesome news. I also really like OmahaStar's idea of having a scene between The Eleventh Doctor and Guinan.

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

Even though this sounds fun, and I'm by no means a comic book artist, I'd like to see IDW hire an actual comic book artist for once, and not trace promo pics for the covers for the 10 billionth time.

I'm a huge fan of both franchises so I'm really looking forward to this.

Re: IDW announces Doctor Who/TNG crossover

You know, in a way I'd kind of prefer period-appropriate crossovers -- like TOS with the Second Doctor, movie-era TOS with the Fourth or Fifth Doctor, TNG with the Seventh, VGR with the Eighth, that sort of thing.
