    Two of my favorite sci-fi shows combines into one was something I merely fantasized about. Having read Assimilation 2 and seeing both worlds collide perfectly was just fantastic. All the character's personalities were captured spot on, from the Doctor being mildly intrigued by Data, to Worf being agitated by the Doctor's confusing explanations. The story line was great, two similar enemies, the cybermen and the borgs, join forces to dominate the world. Just then, when matters start to get serious, the Doctor shows up with his two companions, Amy and Rory, up to ward off the intruders.What I really liked though was this part where the doctor get a flashback and we're transported back in time to stardate 3368.5, when James T. Kirk was captain of the Enterprise. Captain Kirk and his team encounter the old-school cybermen, not sure if the term 'unfortunately' would be appropriate here, because if it weren't for that incident, the Doctor wouldn't have showed up. But wait, it's a flashback, so the Doctor appears in his fourth-regeneration self, handing out jelly babies among the crew. "Fascinating. Gelatin confectionary, dusted with starch, and molded in to the shape of a small child." -Spock on Jelly Babies

    I have been incredibly excited about this since I first heard about it, and was surprised to find the very concept of it was getting a lot of flak and scorn on social media. Had a hard time finding it through legit means (I'm a fan of the TV franchises and a comics newbie unaccustomed to comic publishing standards), but finally managed to purchase a digital version via my DW Comics app. The first installment is mostly focused on Eleven, Amy and Rory--they are characterized well and I love the art style. Can't wait to get the later installments, which I know are already "released" but which I can't seem to find anywhere. I'd like to buy a hard copy of the full series in book form so I hope that happens!

    I am not a big comic book reader, but I do love Doctor Who and Star Trek. So I had to read this crossover series. I just breezed through the first four, and I thought the story was pretty cool and I think it even made pretty logical sense. The Doctor and the Ponds meet the Enterprise crew and as the Borg join forces with Cybermen. There's even a cool scene that visits both series' pasts. I'm not sure if different artists worked on these - but the fourth one just didn't look as nice. I'm not sure if there's some comic-booky way to describe that. Definitely worth checking out if you are a Whovian & Trekker!

    One would think this would be my thing; I love Star Trek andDoctor Who and graphic novels. But the weird blurry photo collagey- style art of this graphic novel, the fact that it’s number two and I didn’t know there was a one, and that I don’t feel like I missed anything. So the Borg and the Cybermen are fighting it out. Picard wants them to kill each other off and I’m still not sure he’s wrong. Neither of them are villains I care about. The Doctor thinks that together they will be a super villain, but so what, really.

    Again, I'm judging this two-parter by what it sets out to achieve. The review is for both parts. When I read the review in VOYA, I was determined to get this graphic novel; I have a group of young whovians in the library, and I've been a fan of both shows since the age of twelve. The volumes finally came in, and I raced through both of them today. I was not disappointed.There's so much to love here. The joint authors/artists get the characterizations down just about perfectly. There's a lot of dry wit, and also an appropriate amount of gruesome danger. The plot's zany, but well worked out. I can understand those reviewers who didn't like the photoshopped-looking artwork, but I found the layouts clear and the characters' expressions wonderful. Favorite moments: "Guns make people stupid." Yay, Doctor! And Rory marvelling at 24th century medicine, and Beverly Crusher understanding what he's given up to be with his wife and the Doctor; and the fourth doctor offering Kirk and company jelly babies; and Worf and Rory exchanging a battle plan in a wordless glance - and then executing it perfectly. And bad wolf/ Wolf 359! Guinan and the Doctor recognizing each other, and realizing that they shouldn't! And Rory and Amy, all the way through, and everyone on the Enterprise doing them the honor of calling them Mr. and Mrs. Williams. I love Amy, and Rory simply rocks. It was such fun to see them being their heroic selves once more. Finally, I loved that the authors/artists respected and understood the underlying values and philosophies of these characters and their universes. The story quite naturally raised interesting questions about free will, individuality, personality, and trust - as well as whether or not violence is the correct response to violence. Great stuff!As with the other "Trek" novel I reviewed, we aren't necessarily talking about great literature here. But this is a well-crafted, well-drawn story that honors its sources and extends them in interesting ways. Recommended.

    Interesting... but a bit blah. The volume brings together issues one to four of the series. The quality of the artwork varies from quite good (issues one and two) to rather poor (issue four, where the resemblances between the various characters and their real-life counterparts is almost non-existent). Issue three contains a significant flashback to a 4th Doctor/TOS encounter.The characterization, to me, seems stilted towards the TNG crew. They seem recognizable, and almost believable. The Doctor -- both in his fourth and eleventh persona -- gravitates towards indistinctly quirky, with preciously little of either Baker's or Smith's natural gravitas. Poor Rory -- the odd time he even gets to speak more than a monosyllable -- reads a one-note, put-upon character. I suppose the plot is serviceable enough -- the Cybermen join up with the Borg, and this is a Bad Thing, but certainly not crackingly intriguing. I'm reading on in the series in the hope it delivers a little more bang, but I'm not at all certain I'll get it.

    An eight part comicbook series that will inevitably become a single volume graphic novel. The concept tickled me. The merging of the two biggest Sci-Fi franchises seemed like a lot of fun, and it is. The dialogue is dead on for all the characters the plot is feasible with a few twists and turns. Past episodes of both series are referenced and even re-experienced. My only disappointment for the series is the artwork. I was hoping for a dynamic comic book style and instead was presented with what looked like photo shopped photo's that were made to look like paintings. Not a strong choice. For me the best issue was when the crew of the original Enterprise, Kirk, Spock, McCoy encounter the fourth Doctor. The artwork here is traditional comic art (making it a flashback).I recommend this for any Trekkie or Whovian out there, you know who you are. It’s a great way to revisit the enterprise crew since their departure from TV and to fill in the empty months between the Doctors new season episodes.

    I've found over the years that crossovers of this kind can be disappointing. Here however we have the beginnings of a very well crafted story which tries it's best to ensure equal billing and essentially screen time, similarly to ensemble films like Avengers. Here the premise is intelligent and showcases the writers clear talent for these characters. My only issue is the artwork, I love the flashback art with Tom Baker and all the characters are captured perfectly here, Kirk, Spock, Scotty and McCoy. It's the main story art that on a personal level don't enjoy, I find it a little distracting and at times it is a struggle to work out which character is which, the body positions seem somewhat alien (no pun intended). The art has a similar tone to Arkham Asylum, and unfortunately for me doesn't work. Even with my issues with the artwork this is a must reader for either franchises fan. Make it so.....GERONIMO!!!!

    What would happen if The Doctor consoled The Enterprise's Captain Picard on negotiating with the evil Borg ? The Captain has had enough of them, there is no trust between the races. He may have to learn to trust them they may be the only source of help in dealing with a threat the Cybermen. Things don't go easy, as they never do for the Doctor or the Enterprise. The Captain gets to know the Tardis, and takes a trip into the future.It amazed me how easily how these two very different character worlds fit together as if they have always been. I really liked the mixing of the worlds and hope to see more of it. Nice graphics and a well written storyline.

    On a whim, I wandered over to the comic, er graphic novel, section of my public library...Found this two-volume story, combining Doctor WhoStar Trek TNGBorg Cybermen.... AND Star Trek TOS. Made for a fun story, one which, as noted, underlines how little I know about modern Doctor Who tales.

    What happens if the Doctor meets the crew of Star Treks Next Generation? I don't realy know but there could be two things possible happen: First they just drink a cup of tea together or they had to fight against the deadlyst enemys of both fractions. So keep calm and call the Doctor through the communicator!

    This was lots better than I thought it was going to be. The dialog of the Doctor is spot on - nailed it early and often. The art was pretty good as well, with different Doctor and Star Trek styles that meshed together while being distinct. I was very impressed with the change in artwork during the flashback sessions.Very fun, I would read another.

    I've debated reading this for a while. It's been sitting here, staring up at me. Today, in my quest to crack 300 books read this year, I'm going for broke. And, you know what? I was surprised. This is a really cool kind of number. It's basically a fanfic, isn't it, really? So, the question begs... Where's the WhoLock Comic? BCC? Moff? Anyone?

    I have to agree with a previous reviewer who said not that much happens. The art is decent; there are a couple of 2-page spreads that are visually arresting. But the story is sort of flat. And to be honest, I didn't feel the dialogue effectively captured the voice of any of the main characters. But take my review with a grain of salt; I'm not really a comic-book person.

    Summary: We can save the world from the Cybermen-assimilated-Borg!Why I Read This: Do you really have to ask?Review: I enjoyed it. I think that I may need to read more graphic novels, because the format threw me off. Most of the graphic novels that I've read are in black and white, so reading a full-color comic was odd but enjoyable.

    The author(s) did a great job capturing the dialog of the character.Not a bad story either. Who would've thought that the Cybermen were tougher than the Borg. They should be thankful it wasn't the Daleks.

    How can you not love a canon Doctor Who/Star Trek crossover? I mean seriously.Also, owning a Kindle Fire has gotten me interested in reading comics where nothing/no one ever could before. So easy to get and read the digital versions!

    Two of my favorite shows. What a cross-over! I have only had a chance to read the first book, but it is great. The story perfectly blends the personalities of Doctor Who (and Friends) and the characters of TNG. Can't wait to read the next installments.

    Mostly set up. We get an introduction to the situation that's going to be the main focus of the story, and a intro story for The Doctor and his companions. The Next Generation crew only makes a brief appearance on the last page.

    Great ideas, bad execution. The art is remarkable, the storytelling not so much. This idea does not live up to its potential, sadly.
