    I wonder if maybe Q will be involved. I could see turning live action into cartoon or cartoon characters into live action could be a Q trick.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about this episode, given the difference in tone between the two shows, the time frame in the series etc. I can't even think of a reason to get them together in universe.

    Temporal Anomaly. There's always one around the corner.
    Call it "Tomorrows Cerritos"

    If they're still doing modified title takes on original TOS episode names, (as they did for a few SNW episodes in season 1) they should probably call this one:

    I liked Spock Amok a lot, and though I did not think the overall approach to Elysian Kingdom was good, there were elements to enjoy (mainly Hemmer and MBenga). And SNW has been really doing well with all their one-liners. Ortegas is the best!

    Agreed. There are parts of VOY and ENT that I don't like at all, and large swaths of DIS and PIC that I feel really failed. I make the occasional critical comment on those shows, but none of those elements ruin any part of Trek.

    Precisely so. "Ruined" as a pretty specific meaning so seeing it thrown about so casually is frustrating. As if a 50+ year old franchise would be undone by one episode...

    I don’t get it. The two shows don’t seem all that different to me aside from being set on different centuries. I can see characters crossing over easily. Why he so pessimistic? SNW isn’t uber serious as you seem to make it out to be.

    I love this idea. Especially if they switch love action and animation roles. Fabulous. Fun. Clever.

    Soon we may see Patrick Stewart and the X-Men.

    I like both shows but I'm really not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, I'm happy because they are taking risks. On the other, I'm wary because they are taking risks.

    I sort of like how separate all the present shows are and I'm not into crossovers generally, but okay... SNW/LDS crossover. They are doing that. Let's wait and see.

    LDS was the last show I would have guessed would do a crossover.

    I figured they would eventually do a crossover, but I had assumed it would feature the LD crew in live action in a larger multi-series crossover. I did not anticipate anyone from a live action show becoming animated outside of LD itself!

    I offer Qpid, A Fistful of Datas, Trials and Tribble-ations, Our Man Bashir, Take Me Out to the Holosuite and Bride of Chaotica as a rebuttal.

    I mean...they kinda' already have.

    RIP Welshey.

    As I said actual comedy, not god-awful parody or just unfunny/ridiculousness.

    Comedy is subjective.
