A Trek/Apes crossover? Ummm, what would GR say?

Dom

The idea’s not so far off a crossover between Star Trek and Genesis II! Comicbooks are outside of canon so who cares what a man who’s been dead for nearly quarter of a century might have thought? I suspect he’s have taken the money and run!

Fritz Kessler

Cool beans, looks like lots of fun stuff to come – thanks Mark!

BringBackKirkPrime

That Pike/Kirk storyline seems interesting. I wonder if it’s a true crossover like the cover implies, or a story where the Pike crew only appears in flashbacks like the description implies.

BatlethInTheGroin

I’d say that Dax cover is a huge spoiler

efren

Every time I see a picture of alt. Kirk, Spock, other, it seems that they are toting guns. Anyone would think that space was one big war zone or that they are really living in the Middle East or in gun crazed USA, a nation that purportedly owns more guns than pets.

Put these Trek guys’ weapons away, for goodness sake. Then they might not attract so many hostile aliens looking for a scrap and just may meet different, nicer kinds of beings.

Unfortunately, (my) the nulis see all this and decide not to make contact. Such a shame…:(

Where’s my Star Trek and Highway to Heaven crossover then?

Where’s my Star Trek and Highway to Heaven crossover then?

Or how about a Star Trek and Quantum Leap crossover?

I love these photonovel comics. I was trying to stop collecting Trek comics but then these came out and I am making an exception for these.

Ever seen any publicity pictures from early Star Trek TV show? They tend to have Kirk and Spock armed; Kirk often armed with a phaser rifle. Star Trek was about a bunch of soldiers out in space exploring, nor a bunch of pussycats on a floating cruiseliner.

And US citizens are allowed to bear arms supposedly so they can topple authoritarian regimes (not excusing the appalling misuse of such weapons, but suggesting you understand the reasons the gun culture exists.) The culture is there to stop situations existing like that in the UK where you can’t sneeze without it being observed on multiple CCTV cameras and all your emails and texts being read (the UK population is the most heavily surveilled outside of China and N. Korea.)

‘Put these Trek guys’ weapons away, for goodness sake. Then they might not attract so many hostile aliens looking for a scrap and just may meet different, nicer kinds of beings.’

Or get invaded by bad guys who don’t hold the same values. Sounds like you’ve supped to much from the naive TNG goblet!! ;)

Could anyone tell me who that is on the “Scent of Ghosts” cover, in the upper-right portion of the cast images? She appears to be Majel Barrett wearing a green tunic, but I’m not familiar with the character–especially since my first answer would be Number One from The Cage, but that character is already represented.

I’ll apologize for this whole in my Trek knowledge now–in order to avoid the forthcoming remonstrances.
