    So, if ENT could do a crossover with another Trek series, which one would you choose? What would you want to see?

    The only possibility is later ones. So we have Discovery, the Section 31 show, and possibly a Pike show set 100 years later, so any crossover characters would be fairly old. Blalock is out of acting I hear, but John Billingsley could make a Phlox appearance if called for.

    Lower Decks is unplaced as of now, but most likely 23rd or 24th century. Its comical tone and animated production could lead to expanded crossovers just for humor's sake. Time travel, wacky stasis, even crotchety old Enterprise characters are not off the table as they would be in the more serious shows.

    Use of holograms might bring in a few characters that way in any of the above series.

    Why only the later ones? Crossovers in TNG and DS9 were with TOS; they did not require an extant production machine for TOS, merely the use of elements from that long-dead show suitably resurrected for the purpose.

    I mean, with the emphasis moving away from broadcast TV, limiting "crossover" to cultural exchanges between two "currently running" shows seems quite artificial.

    Time travel allows for interaction across centuries, and is already part and parcel of the ENT concept in good and bad. Archer's show is the one where visitors from past or future would have the best excuse for appearing, really. And possibly also the one show that needs integration into the greater Trek whole the most, what with describing an influential time in UFP history but failing to get a real mention anywhere outside DSC.

    I think a crossover with Discovery would be fascinating, and since it is currently the only show in production, also more practically possible. During the time of Discovery, the Federation is less than a century old and still finding its feet. I think DSC does a good job of making space seem strange and unknown, which would work well alongside ENT's vibe of new frontiers being opened up.

    I want to see Lorien as a Starfleet captain in Discovery. The implication being somebody didn't die and had a child with T'Pol in the regular timeline.

    Or T'Pol herself could turn up on DSC.

    If she liked the script, I can see Jolene coming back for it. She might even commit to a season if T'Pol becomes the Discovery's new captain.

    Just don't give her the Intrepid... :(

    I would like to see a crossover with "The Cage" era Pike crew. A post-Demons/Terra Prime Trip & T'Pol recovering from the death of Elizabeth meeting a young Spock still struggling with his emotions and dual heritage. A worn out Pike meeting an Archer who came through the Xindi war and reclaimed his ideals.

    She's the obvious one to me, but considering her relationship with the studio, I'm not optimistic.

    Crewman Daniels, on the other hand...without saying too much, I can see plenty of space on DSC for him!

    They already crossed over with TOS and TNG. That will do for me.

    The Temporal War storyline and episodes like "Carpenter Street" give them access to pretty much any current-day-set show. CSI: NX-01. Or pretty much anything, except the perps are Xindi or Suliban in disguise.
