5 sentence review of Star Trek: TNG/Doctor Who crossover comic

5. Two of the most dominate franchises in science fiction history — “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Doctor Who” — finally join forces in an eight-issue limited series by IDW comics.

4. It makes an interesting mash up: “Doctor Who,” especially since its 2005 reincarnation, has eschewed science with “timey-wimey” explanations for its impossibilities, while “Star Trek: The Next Generation” feels the need to expound on science and philosophy like a college professor far gone on a Jolt Cola bender.

3. The first issue doesn’t offer much interactions between the eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, save for the materialization of the TARDIS on the holodeck, where Data and TNG stalwarts seem to be enjoying a game.

2. Artist J.K. Woodward paints realistic renderings for the title that convey both cinematic action and a sense of familiar with strong likenesses throughout.

1. It’s too soon to tell whether Scott and David Tipton’s script is up to the task of giving equally billing to the sci-fi heavyweights, but the plot of a the Borg and Cybermen joining forces in an assimilation bender is worthy of at least another $4 in the series.
