Excuse me while I nerd out for a moment, but Doctor Who and Star Trek are going to  officially cross over (albeit in comic form). There were plans to merge the two series into the same fictional universe back when Doctor Who relaunch and Enterprise was still on the air. The idea was to just plop the whole Star Trek timeline right into the muddy future of Doctor Who. This would have also put Star Trek indirectly in the same universe as Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as its Douglas Adams was head writer on Who for years and considered them in the same universe (easter eggs are sprinkled through Who). Although we may never see it on screen, doing it in comic form is better than nothing and now Matt Smith gets to match wits with Patrick Stewart in some way.

Awesome sauce.
