Let’s see who is cross over this crossover!

2. Azrael - March 19, 2012

*fires orbital kinetic anti-bad pun weapon*

3. Remington Steele - March 19, 2012

Photoshopped Kirk there looks hilarious!

4. Garovorkin - March 19, 2012

The Borg and the Cybermen together . Awesome !

5. Harry Ballz - March 19, 2012

Azrael, resistance is futile, you will become one with the BORED!

Photoshopped Kirk doesnt look so bad. It looks much more organic than the hooded Spock.

7. Remington Steele - March 19, 2012

#6

I suppose it’s knowing the picture is of Kirk at his hearing in the movie and it just looks weird….fully agree with you on Spock!

8. Soonerdew - March 19, 2012

Anyone notice the lead guy in the Legends cover looks like Cumberbatch?

9. VZX - March 19, 2012

Hmmm. I wonder why there is no comic cover version of the episode “Space Seed.” Is that cuz Khan is actually in the next movie?

10. Capes - March 19, 2012

OMG there is new stuff on here!!!!!

11. Dee - lvs moon' surface - March 19, 2012

I loved the cover of Star Trek #10… ;-) :-)

12. Keachick - rose pinenut (F) - March 19, 2012

What is Kirk wearing? From the looks of these comics, they seem to want to take us to hell and back. This obsession with what is cruel, gruesome, demented and dark is not healthy. There is enough genuine crap in the world – pain, suffering, injustices of all kinds – without indulging one’s free time in imaginary shit.

I prefer cheese myself…

13. The TOS Purist aka The Purolator - March 19, 2012

#12 – Agreed!! But nowadays, the “dark, gritty reboot” is really popular for some stupid reason. It’s idiotic.

14. Red Dead Ryan - March 19, 2012

#12.

Yeah, I’m getting tired of your bitching, especially as you’re judging a book by its cover, and getting angry over it.

15. Goosenecked Fan - March 19, 2012

WOW!!! So good to see some news…some activity…a PULSE back here at Trekmovie!! SUPERB!!!! :-)

16. Richard NJ - March 19, 2012

I am still annoyed they missed the 45th Anniversary

17. CarlG - March 19, 2012

Doctor Who meets Trek: Oh, this is going to be a slice of cheesy awesomeness, I can’t WAIT.

18. Keachick - rose pinenut (F) - March 19, 2012

Yes, Red Dead Ryan – everyone here is judging a book by its cover because that is all we have. Duh.

19. Iva - March 19, 2012

For a moment it looked like Merlin & Arthur on the cover, instead of Spock and Kirk.

20. CmdrR - March 19, 2012

Sorry, nothing beats Star Trek meets Batman.
Now that was pure Cheese Heaven.
(can’t quite link from where I am, but I think you’ll find it on YourTuber.

12. “This obsession with what is cruel, gruesome, demented and dark is not healthy.”

Hey, “Space is disease and death wrapped in darkness and silence.” Or haven’t you heard?

22. Capes - March 19, 2012

If Kirk gets a Legion Flight Ring….THAT is where I draw the line!!!

23. thebiggfrogg - March 20, 2012

Are the gears on the Trek Archons cover from the new engine room brought to you by Budweiser?

24. CAPT KRUNCH - March 20, 2012

The TREK-X-MEN crossovers were awesome!!…
The Gary Mitchell mutant story was fantastic…plus you have:
Scotty and Scotty, Dr. McCoy and Dr McCoy…..and Patrick Stewart…
SO COOL!!

25. TJ Trek - March 20, 2012

everyone has a right to his or her opinion. Please, please, please share it respecfully, and don’t gripe when other people have an opinion please. That’s all I got.

oh, the new ongoing STAR TREK series looks great. I am currently annoyed (though haven’t read) about the crossover stuff. a little too cheezy in my book, for a a show that’s always had a serious tone for me.

26. Dee - lvs moon' surface - March 20, 2012

I liked the cover exactly because of surprise of seeing Kirk and Spock in these outfits… ;-) :-)

27. Desstruxion - March 20, 2012

The Borg are cheap knock offs of the Cybermen. I am really excited about the crossover though. It should be the Doctor meeting Kirk instead of Picard. I guess they needed the TNG bunch to fit the Borg in.

28. Keachick - rose pinenut (F) - March 20, 2012

#21 – So true. LOL

Of course, this observation was coming from a man who had appeared not to have washed or shaved in a while, was recently divorced and bitter about it, who carried on him a flask of *Saurian brandy*(?) which very likely needed constant refilling and whose first words to a complete stranger were, “I may throw up on you!”

29. rm10019 - March 20, 2012

Dr. Who crossover is fun, the other, not so much.

30. Battle-scarred Sciatica - March 20, 2012

Hey Harry!

this is way off topic but have you heard of the allegedly “neo-medieval” style of Krypton in Zack Snyders Man of Steel?

I’m not sure of that one!

http://io9.com/5894416/supermans-home-planet-might-not-look-like-what-we-expect-in-man-of-steel?tag=morningspoilers

31. Harry Ballz - March 20, 2012

BsB

I HAD heard that they developed a language for Krypton, which is mentioned in the article you attached.

With all the “medieval” crap in the media these days, small wonder they decided to glom on to this “flavour of the month” mentality!

Nothing worse than trying to attach a current (transitory) trend to an iconic character!

32. Soonerdew - March 20, 2012

Are we sure that the sequel isn’t a Trek – Dr. Who crossover, explaining these comics and the obvious British influence in the cast….And the set pics truly were leaked to divert attention?

Just sayin…

33. Vultan - March 20, 2012

#31

Harry, what would you think of a big screen adaptation of the old Max Fleischer Superman cartoons from ’40s, meaning a “gee-whiz,” lighthearted retro setting, and eschewing the current trend of dark and gritty? I think that’s the only way to go with Superman…

Anyway, here’s a modern take (an animated short) on the old cartoons. Enjoy:

34. Vultan - March 20, 2012

Correction: “from THE ’40s”

” Are we sure that the sequel isn’t a Trek – Dr. Who crossover, explaining these comics and the obvious British influence in the cast….”

There is a long history of “British influence” in Trek… dating back to the original series. Take a look at the guest stars they had. Mostly all British. And then again in the movies. This movie is no different.

36. Craiger - March 20, 2012

I don’t read comics but I wonder about getting the Dr. Who/TNG crossover one. I wonder how the crew reacts when the Tardis shows up and where? In the Transporter Room or the Bridge?

37. Craiger - March 20, 2012

They did mention Star Trek on one of the Matt Smith’s Dr. Who episodes. I wonder how they would explain that?

38. Will - March 20, 2012

Look like nuKirk is wearing a giant Napoleon hat on his head. (I know it is really the Star Trek logo, but it looks ridiculous positioned like a hat).

39. Battle-scarred Sciatica - March 20, 2012

@31

Yep its got me a bit worried I must say.

We’ll see I suppose.

Did you watch the 20 minute question and answer with Ridley and Damon re; Prometheus on the same page? A great Q & A

Looking forward to it! Looks brill.

40. SoonerDave - March 20, 2012

@35

The board software just at my previous response, so I’m not going to rebuild the whole thing here. Suffice it to say I politely disagree with the idea that “mostly all” guest stars on TOS were British. Mind you, nothing against the Brits at all, just don’t think the “mostly all” is remotely accurate. Some, surely, but only some – including the TOS movies.

41. moauvian waoul - aka: seymour hiney - March 20, 2012

28. Got a point there.

42. Harry Ballz - March 20, 2012

33.

Vultan, I think you have proposed a very interesting idea.

It would depend on the director’s take on it and how it’s drawn.

43. montreal_paul - March 22, 2012

40. SoonerDave

I was going to start listing them for you… but there are FAR too many. You can go take a look for yourself. If you watched TOS at all you would see that there are quite a few Brits in each episode as well as TNG and the movies.

44. Ziro - March 24, 2012

we need an Indiana Jones / Doctor Who crossover next !
