BBC Worldwide and CBS have agreed to the first crossover between two of the longest running franchises in science fiction – Doctor Who and Star Trek: The Next Generation – in a brand new comic-book.

Released May 2012 by comic publisher IDW, Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2 will feature villainious cyborgs from both universes – the Cybermen and the Borg, who have an eerily similar modus operandi.

“By joining these two sci-fi powerhouses, fans will be taken on the ultimate adventure through time and space,” said Liz Kalodner, executive vice president and general manager of CBS Consumer Products.

“We are excited about this new adventure for the Doctor and the fact that he will be travelling with Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his iconic crew. This is a perfect partnership for not only Doctor Who‘s incredible fans, but also for the brand. We have just celebrated our most successful year yet. Doctor Who‘s latest season delivered record ratings for BBC America and it was most downloaded full TV seasons of 2011 in the US on the iTunes Store,” said Soumya Sriraman, executive vice president Home Entertainment and Licensing.
