I take it that you haven't seen the X-Men/Star Trek crossover that they did a
few years ago.


Now, I've read fanfic with Doctor Who meeting every other SF space or time
traveler you can imagine, which makes some half-assed sense given The Doctor's
premise, and I recall how Larry Niven adapted one of his short stories for the
ST animated series and thus introduced the Kzinti into the ST universe, but this
takes the prize for stretching two franchises to the limit just to rake in a few
extra $$$ in "celebration" of ST's 35th anniversary.

It would be as if Bandai had done a Gundam/Pokémon crossover last year to
"celebrate" the MSG 20th anniversary. (Imagine Haro as a Pokéball and the rest
becomes clear…! (>_<))
