    If I could find one fault of this first issue it would be how much more Doctor Who has in terms of story than Star Trek. While it certainly injected a ton of fun into a particularly dark opening, I would have liked to have seen a tad more from the Star Trek story too. I would have even paid another dollar in order to get a few more pages for Star Trek to get a little more play. Don't get me wrong, though, this book has an amazing start and definitely lived up to the hype that I had built around it for a fun story featuring some of my all time favorite characters in any medium ever.

    The writers deserve a lot of credit for producing a carefully crafted and entertaining script. Woodward's oil painting style artwork is the icing on the cake of one wonderful comic book. Read Full Review

    Star Trek: Next Generation/Doctor Who #1 looks like it's going to be everything a fan of both shows would want " big action, a villain so powerful neither can defeat it alone, and the spot-on portrayals of characters we know and love. Fans of either show really need to pick this one up when they do their shopping tomorrow. Read Full Review

    It might not be the burst out of the gate that many were hoping, but I think Who/Trek fans will find enough to enjoy here to warrant checking it out. Read Full Review

    This was better than I expected, but I still had to wonder how matching up old Star Trek (obviously not the oldest) and new Doctor Who is really going to work. Additionally if the second issue takes the usual stance of "you're the bad guy, no you're the bad guy" I will call it good instantly with this series. Hopefully The Next Generation crew gets some shine in the next issue, but this first issue wasn't a disappointment in the least. Read Full Review

    I hope it gets better because this crossover has such a lot of potential. Also, you don't need to be very familiar with either series to enjoy this book. A superficial familiarity is enough to understand it. Read Full Review

    "Star Trek: The Next Generation / Doctor Who: Assimilation" #1 is slightly slow, both in story and art, but it's not bad either. It's got some good enough ideas, and I appreciate both the approach and the final page reveal. It's going to need to get a little more energy all around, though, to keep readers beyond the second issue. There's potential here, but we need more than potential to continue much longer.
