    Two issues in and I'm loving this series. It truly is a geek dream come true! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 27, 2012

    All in all, this issue is one that I can dissect from the perspective of what I might have done, or what I think could have worked better, but the basics are all sound. The recurring blurry factor of the art doesn't go away (and is more noticeable on Amy Pond and Doctor Crusher), but it's a good-looking comic and there's a lot more explanation of Starfleet than we saw in IDW's other future-shock crossover, Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes, ever gave us. In short, Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who" Assimilation2 #2 gets the Star Trek right, has Riker in it, and doesn't bobble the Doctor, making for a successful issue and 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. Fingers crossed for a Fifth Doctor/Kira Nerys moment somewhere in this series... Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Jul 2, 2012

    There is no doubt, this is still a total hoot to read. My own personal preference on the art not withstanding, this is hitting all the right notes for fans of both Star Trek " The Next Generation and Doctor Who. And while I don't know how long they can pilot the nostalgia train without giving us actual plot content. I'm still willing to have some fun and ride along. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gilbert Short Jun 28, 2012

    I really wanted this book to be amazing. I'm sticking with it for the time being, but it was quite disappointing. Hopefully parts 3 through 8 are up to the potential I see in the pages, even if I'm not overly thrilled with the outcome. If you're a fan of either franchise, or if you're like me, both, you'll probably find something to enjoy. It could just be better. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 28, 2012

    If it wasn't for the art I would go very low for the rating of this book; as it is though it hits about average, not good and plenty of room for improvement. Since I'm sure that the book is already completed I'm not very hopeful for changes in the characterizations and the story so I'll skip that part where I give feedback on how to make this crossover less boring and terrible. Frankly, it's just like every other licensed crossover" meh. Read Full Review

    Comicville - Chris Blackwell Jun 27, 2012

    So far this series has failed to deliver on the hype. The entire story line was developed in the first 4 pages of issue #1, and there has been nothing since. Very mediocre issue, and I hope now that the Doctor and Jean-Luc are together, that the magic we were all hoping for, will start-up soon. Read Full Review

    This crossover falls short of its' potential, and I believe would leave both StarTrek and Doctor Who fans disappointed. Read Full Review
