    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? ;)

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

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

    Klingons and Sontarans?

    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."

    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.

    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?

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

    Rich Johnston's work on Bleeding Cool always reads like they're written on a smartphone or tablet with the predictive text on and no revision.

    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?
