We’ve still got months to wait for the next Star Trek feature film to warp into theaters, but until then, IDW is making some great Trek comics, and two of them arrived in stores this week!

1. Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who Assimilation2 (Squared) #3. Scott & David Tipton with Tony Lee (w) • J.K. Woodward (a) The two greatest science-fiction properties of all time cross over for the first time in history, in STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/DOCTOR WHO: ASSIMILATION2! The true horror of the Borg-Cybermen alliance has been revealed, but what course of action will Captain Picard and the Doctor agree upon? And will the Doctor’s recently resurfaced memories shed new night on the dilemma? FC • 32 pages • $3.99

It’s still great to see all the members of the Enterprise D team interact with the folks from the Tardis. However, the most fun part of this issue for me was a flashback when the Doctor (Tom Baker) works together with Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and the rest of that Enterprise crew. Even the art style changes, from painting to a more standard comic-book look. It’s a very well done sequence. I laughed when the Doctor asks Kirk to distract a Cyberman, and Kirk uses one of his trademark techniques! The last page has an interesting development that makes perfect sense given that the universes seem to be changed somehow! Excellent book, as usual!
