I love my insane psychotic psychic wife.
Been a while, but despite contradicting first contact, Federation is pretty good.By far the best Picard/Kirk crossover is the novel "Federation." It would have been a bitch to adapt to a movie, but if they had pulled it off, Generations would have been remembered in the same breath as Wrath of Khan.
I especially liked its take on Cochrane's past and what happened to him after his appearance in TOS. Gave me some good gundam vibes, but it's crossover element felt really lacking to me.
It's a fun read to see how both sides meet in the middle, but nobody from TOS and TNG really interacts aside from a brief engagement at the end.
Speaking of crossovers Ive read quite a few of the star trek ones.
First and formost there was the Q Conflict.
This was pretty dam fun. Im not going to tell you it was perfect, as Q was stacking the deck for Picard pretty hard and his motivations were a little all over the place. It could have been better if it had a more time to grow and explore character interactions, but it's good for what it is.
Although I did think Ds9 got the short end of the stick as its cast is Pre-badass season 3 and there's no Garrek, but its a fun little romp.
Then there was the Dr Who/Star Trek crossover.
I was surprised how good this was. I am not what you would consider a Dr Who fan, but at the time my friend was into it, so I got this. Even if your not a fan or barely know anything about the mythos it does a great job of catching you up to speed and sucking you into the Borg-Cybermen conflict at the heart of it.
There's an awesome cameo from
Star trek- Green Lantarn
Better then it has any right to be, to the point that when the sequel series ended I was legit wanting to see more. Not a terribly big fan of JJ trek, but the D.C stuff was interesting.
Star trek- planet of the apes
Oh man this was great! The interactions with Kirk and Taylor were gold. The Klingon's arming apes with weaponry and using them to take over was fantastic.
The only thing that sucked for me was the ending
Earth still gets blown up anyway
There's a couple more ive read that are good, but ill leave it here for now.
Has anybody else done comprehensive postings on star trek comics like those in the star wars thread?
