doctor-wh0-star-trek-assimilation-mainPicard is adamant, refusing to open negotiations with the Borg. He’d like to see the Borg and the Cybermen destroy each other. Neither Guinan nor the Doctor can persuade him otherwise. Counselor Troi suggests to Amy that the Captain needs to hear from someone other than the Doctor. Amy invites Picard on a tour of the TARDIS and the future of the Federation, if the Cybermen aren’t stopped. When he returns, Picard is finally ready to speak with the Borg.

TNG_Who_issue_8_cover_AOur Thoughts: The epic crossover between the crew of the Enterprise and The Doctor comes to a dramatic climax. This story moves at warp speed and it’s a winner! We loved the way the story ends, the character moments between the Doctor & the crew of the D are well written. The Tipton’s have managed to blend the two universes well together and the art remains strong throughout with some great covers.

The Final Verdict: This a must read for all Star Trek / Doctor Who fans. This story deserves a golden ten!
