10.25.2011 – Back in July during SDCC 2011 IDW Publishing and DC Comics announced a surprising crossover event for both Legion of Super Heroes and Star Trek fans. For anyone who envisioned this long ago this thought ridiculed impossible is about to happen.
Star Trek from the Original Series teams up with the futuristic super team from DC Comics and it happens this October 2011! Everyone has been talking about this mash up for months and we’re pretty much surprised with this development.
If you have read the old Star Trek adventures published by DC Comics then you’ll be in for a treat to know that the Starship Enterprise returns to the DC Universe as part of the premise here’s the complete press release…
The 23rd century and the 30th century collide in IDW’s first-ever crossover with DC Comics’ Superheroes!
The original Starship Enterprise has traveled across time and space on its five-year mission, but it will be entering the DC Universe for the first time this summer. IDW Publishing is proud to announce its first-ever crossover with DC Comics’ Super Heroes in STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPERHEROES, a six-issue monthly series beginning in October 2011.
STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPERHEROES tells the tale of the original crew of the Starship Enterprise, who beam down to a planet only to discover that the planet isn’t their intended destination, or even in the right universe. At the same time, a group of “Great Darkness Saga” Legionnaires inside a time sphere find them cast into the 23rd century, but it’s not the 23rd century as they know it, either. STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPERHEROES is a galaxy-spanning adventure that draws both teams together to face a menace that includes Khunds, Klingons, Borg, and other threats that aren’t quite as they should be.
The egalitarian United Planets in one universe and a United Federation of Planets in another is now the Imperial Planets of Terra, a dark empire focused on war and conquest, and that’s just the beginning for this special series.
Certainly this going to be one of those unforgettable crossovers that we thought it won’t happen and you can’t imagine how unique can be.
“Nothing like kicking off our first foray into the DC Universe with a story that spans dimensions and centuries,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief and the lead editor on this crossover. “As a huge fan of both of these teams and the eras we’re playing with here, as well as an admirer of the talents involved with this tale, I couldn’t be happier.”
