First reported by Bleeding Cool, Dirk Wood of IDW and Matt Parkinson from Dark Horse Comics announced at London Comic Con that both companies are collaborating to bring an all new threat to the crew of the Enterprise-D, xenomorphs. Subtitled “Acceptable Losses”, the crossover will feature the crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation taking on the xenomorphs from the Aliens movie series.
The crossover will be written by Scott and David Tipton with artwork by J.K. Woodward, who collaborated on the Star Trek/Doctor Who mini series in 2012. Star Trek is no stranger to crossovers as they have previously collaborated with DC Comics for Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes and Star Trek/ Green Lantern, Marvel Comics with Star Trek/ X-Men and Boom! Studios for Star Trek/Planet of the Apes.
Personally, I am looking forward to this series not only as a Sci-Fi nerd and comic book fan, but as a fanboy of all things Trek. I am absolutely salivating at the prospect of the Borg trying to assimilate the Xenomorphs and the horror melding those two species will produce. Space may be the final frontier, but it is still the place where no one can hear you scream.
