    I've no problems with that. Was merely making a helpful suggestion.

    Playmates already took care of a Trek/Ninja Turtles crossover back in the nineties. Check it out

    Can you imagine an Xenomorph incubating in a Klingon? :eek: Or a Jem Hadar? :eek::eek: (Would the Xenomorph be addicted to white?:eek::eek::eek:)

    I collected Playmates' Star Trek stuff in the '90s, but I just couldn't muster the will to get those. I just couldn't do it.

    I will, however, get the Doctor Who/ST TNG crossover.

    How about an Alien/8472 hybrid?

    I tried to order these, mail order, but the Spock and Kirk had sold out, and I only received the McCoy and Scotty turtles. Nothing worse than an incomplete set. I eventually found a set of four that had to be sold as a set, so suddenly I had two turtles' worth of Trekkie spare parts.

    Although I've never found the time to assemble her, I later bought the then-new, suddenly-controversial, female Ninja Turtle, Venus - with plans to customize her as "Venus as Yeoman Janice Rand", complete with blonde beehive. One day...

    A DS9 novel does feature a Jem'Hadar figting a Xenomorph on the holodeck.

    Although it's left to the reader to recognize the creature based on the description, otherwise there would've been some scary lawyers knocking on Simon & Schuster's door...

    After giving it some thought I have decided this may not be such a bad thing after all. I just worry that two of my favorite series will get the shaft if this project is not designed and written right. But I am now willing to give it a try. Maybe as a trade paperback as I dont usually buy single issues of comic books anymore.

    ^ The worst that can happen is that you, or the rest of us, don't like the comic and you've wasted the price of it (which admittedly in the current economic climate is a factor).

    At the end of the day, if the comic sucks, it's not going to affect the current Doctor Who series or the Trek movies (and TNG is moribound anyway). At worst, it'll be a wasted opportunity. Most of the general audience who watch DW on tv or will go to see the next JJ Abrams Trek movie wil have no idea that this comic has even been written, so neither series will get shafted.

    Like our friends from Futurama would say: "it resembles but is legally distinct from."

    Rich Johnston is reporting that the creative team is Scott and David Tipton writing and J.K. Woodward drawing. The title is Assimilation, and it will feature the Borg and the Cybermen teaming up to lay down some smack.

    I wonder if one cybernetic race will consider the other inferior?

    ^^I doubt it, otherwise why would they team up?

    ^ Intended double cross and assimilation at the end of it all?

    Oh, the intent to double-cross the partner as obligatory in villain teamups as the initial misunderstanding/fight sequence is in superhero teamups.

    More updates, this time from startrek.com.

    The title is Assimilation2. Tony Lee is doing some sort of writing assist. And it's going to be eight issues long.

    Well, actually that 2 is supposed to be an exponent, read "Assimilation Squared." Is there a way to do superscripts with this board software, or should we write it as Assimilation^2?
