Star Trek Continues: To Boldy Go (parts 1 & 2)

I used to be more into Star Trek and Doctor Who fan film projects than I am now, but a little while ago I wrote about watching my first episode of Star Trek Continues, a high-production value recreation of the original Star Trek series, starring and co-created by Vic Mignogna. That one guest starred Doctor Who alum Colin Baker as an alien leader. That led me to eventually watching the series’ two part-finale, To Boldly Go, which features Baker’s co-star on Doctor Who, Nicola Bryant.

Doctor Who Invades the Multiverse: Star Trek / Legion of Super-Heroes

I was thinking today about examples where Doctor Who has spread out into other fictional arenas. Often this takes the form of Doctor Who simply being a TV show that exists in the world of these other programs, like whenever one of the characters referenced it in The Big Bang Theory.

But today’s focus is different.  It’s one of those examples where the Doctor and the TARDIS and the lore of Doctor Who evidently “exists” in another fictional property—in this case, the Star Trek / Legion of Super-Heroes crossover series that IDW published in 2011-2012.
