Doctor Who meets Captain Picard!
First up is the very strange but curiously kooky Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover. BBC Worldwide in conjunction with IDW Publishing is launching Star Trek: the Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation 2 on May 2012. Featuring both the Borg and the Cybermen in an unholy alliance of epic proportion, Assimilation 2 joins the crew of the USS Enterprise and the Doctor on a balls-out Sci-Fi adventure to save the universe.
This eight-issue series will be written by Scott and David Tipton, the authors of critically acclaimed Star Trek: Infestation, with a helping hand from longtime Doctor Who writer Tony Lee, and will feature fully painted artwork by J.K. Woodward (Fallen Angel).

Along with the new look Arcana has also struck up a new relationship with Benderspink, the production company behind such films as Hangover, I am Number Four and The Butterfly Effect. If we are looking at some comic book spin-offs in the future this should prove to be very interesting.
