In 1963, a BBC production by the name of Doctor Who premiered, and just four years later Star Trek would premiere on NBC. Little did anyone know that these two shows would continue for so long or become such a part of the cultural zeitgeist. Yet the two franchises would not be brought together until 2012 in the form of a comic crossover.
In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about the Star Trek: The Next Generation and Doctor Who crossover comic, Assimilation². We discuss the post-Wolf 359 Federation, the timeline of the story, being a Doctor Who fan verses a novice, whether Guinan is part Time Lord, the art, crossovers in general, and give our ratings.
For our news segment we judge the covers for Atonement, Star Trek Costumes, and Child of Two Worlds, then review Ongoing #45 and New Visions' Resistance.
