Haha I love it. I think Scully would more easily adapt, she'd like Beverly
Star Trek and TRON. I think the virtual representation would make for a great Holodeck program.
You know I'd like to see that haha. Or maybe the world like in Tron is also what it's like inside computers in TNG haha. That would be a hoot.
Game of Thrones/The Hobbit.
Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider
Harry Potter/The Wizard of Oz
I always thought a Benny/River match-up on Doctor Who would be fun
Yeah, it dawned on me that the holodeck grid is tron-like a bit and I don't think it would be too far a stretch for an episode to take entirely inside the computer. Can you imagine Data?
A sort of storyline I could imagine is a virus that can only be removed if they step through into Tron and deal with the virus-like representations before the computer is returned to normal.
TNG meets Buckaroo Banzai and the gang.
I can see that. Buckaroo thinks he's going through the side of a mountain and ends up in Engineering. Before they can send him back they have to repair the damage his truck did to the table, and figure out how to get the vehicle out of Engineering.
Oh yes that would be so much fun, only the truck lodged itself partially inside the warp reactor....
Data: May I inquire as to the reason for a watermelon being in this location?
Riker: ...I'll tell you later.
Of course it is. That's the only way to get it out of Engineering without removing the MSD wall.
Well, seeing as we're in a TNG frame of mind, TNG and Scooby-Doo. Dixon Hill, Shaggy and the Gang team up to solve a mystery of epic proportions. As a consequence, it ends up being an animated TNG episode.
Dr. Who and Cold Case. Lily and the Doctor team up to solve cold cases using the Tardis.
A grand uncle of mine allegedly disappeared as a kid in 19th century Philadlphia, but I don't know the details. But the most famous and coldest mystery case in Philadelphia is probably the kidnapping of Charley Ross July I, 1874, the first kidnapping for ransom in the USA..
That would be amazing but not sure how Lily would react to the Tardis, and also that her series is set in more or less the real world. Would she freak out?
Murder, She Wrote and Midsomer Murders.
John and Sarah Barnaby are eating breakfast as Sarah, reading a newspaper article aloud, reports that mystery writer Jessica Fletcher is due to visit Midsomer to research her latest novel. John is disgusted. "They say that for every printed page of all her books, someone in her circle, someone real, dies. I suggest we keep a wide berth when she comes calling."
IZombie and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Leatherface will own his butcher shop in Seattle as a hideout so he can target other humans and zombies.
Ghostbusters and Dr Who:
Don't cross the streams, they said. Inevitably, there was always a curiosity as to what would happen if they did cross the streams. One day, they did, and something completely unexpected happened. There was a loud crack like thunder, and out of nowhere it seemed, a blue rectangular box came tumbling out of the heavens, almost squashing the foursome. They had evaded certain death, but looked on perplexed at the blue box as if waiting for something to happen. Then, as if they had waited an eternity, the doors opened and a lone slender figure emerged. "Hellllooooooo!", it exclaimed.
I still like the idea of Dr. Who and Cold Case
If any other TV detectives working on a crime that just happened try to use time travel to see who did it that would make them seem very lazy and incompetent. Television detectives always have enough clues that they don't need time travel or magic to solve cases. But trying to solve a cold case after decades is much more difficult and the cold case detectives wouldn't seem lazy if they "cheated" by using time travel.
It would be sort of funny to see a cross over between Gunsmoke (CBS 1955-1975) and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961).
As some of us may remember, those shows on different networks were both set in Dodge City, Kansas. Wyatt Earp was a lawman in Dodge City during the loosely based on history seasons two, three, and four (1956-1959) of The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961), while Matt Dillon was the totally fictional lawman in Dodge City during all twenty seasons of Gunsmoke (CBS 1955-1975) that should correspond to a rather long stretch of fictional time.
And naturally, the fictional characters from Gunsmoke (CBS 1955-1975) were never mentioned in The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961), while the variously fictional and historical characters in The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961) were never mentioned in Gunsmoke (CBS 1955-1975).
In a crossover with Doctor Who or Sliders someone could visit alternate universes with Matt Dillon in one and Wyatt Earp in the other.
So it would be an interesting problem for a crossover to explain why Matt Dillon & co. never met Wyatt Earp & co. in the same western town if Gunsmoke (CBS 1955-1975) and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961) happen in the same fictional universe.
And what makes it an interesting problem for even those Star Trek fans who aren't interested in westerns is the fact that both Gunsmoke (CBS 1955-1975) and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961) have connections to the fictional universe of Star Trek novels.
In my post # 51 in thread: https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/star-trek-is-part-of-mcu.293148/page-3#post-12559708 I show how Barbara Hambly's Star Trek novel Ishmael Is connected with:
Note that the TV movie The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw, (3 November 1991) has links with Have Gun Will Travel (1957-1963), Maverick (1957-1962), The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961) and The Rifleman (1958-1963)
So my post number 51 says:
Dodge City was named after Fort Dodge Kansas (1865-1882) which was named by the soldiers to show anger at being ordered to the site by Major General Grenville M. Dodge (1831-1916). General Dodge resigned from the army in 1866 and became chief engineer in constructing the Union Pacific Railway.
There is an alternate theory that Fort Dodge might have been named for Colonel Henry Dodge (1782-1867) of the First US Dragoons who stopped at the site in 1835.
[Colonel Dodge is believed to have been the grandfather of Henry Chee Dodge (c.1860-1947), the first chairman of the Navajo Business Council. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chee_Dodge]
Colonel Richard Irving Dodge (1827-1895) also served on the frontier, including in Kansas:
So with several well known Dodges active in Kansas, a fictional universe that includes both Gunsmoke (CBS 1955-1975) and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961) could be one where two different towns in Kansas were named after two different prominent army officers named Dodge. I don't think that the US post office began to rule against having two places with the same name in a single state until decades after the fictional time spans of Gunsmoke (CBS 1955-1975) and The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (ABC 1955-1961).
John Wick: Chapter X
John Wick is cotracted to kill Snake Plissken.
John: I heard you were dead.
Snake: I heard you were out.
John: In a minute, we'll both be right.
