Poll of the Week: Crossover Confusion

Share this:

There are few science fiction fans out there who are content to constrain themselves to the fandom of a single show or series, or movie for that matter. Most of us have multiple ‘sci-fi loves’, some of which we draw on when we write our characters here in the 118 fleet. While there were often common threads that the genre pulled on to weave intricate and interesting stories, each show and each movie brought something new and different. From the outside looking in, however, we have to wonder what might happen to our beloved stories, and the characters that exist within them, if we were to mix them all up.

And that brings us to this poll of the week: What Star Trek character would you have appear in another sci-fi show or movie, and what show or movie would that be?

We’ve all seen crossover shows before, like when Scotty appeared in The Next Generation, or when characters from one show visit the story of a spinoff show of a similar name. But what would happen if we literally pulled our favorite characters out of one show and universe, and stuck them in another completely different show and universe? Depending on the combination, things could get disastrous, or the hilarity may ensue. Only you can be the judge of that!

Head to the Poll of the Week forum now and submit your choice for the best Star Trek crossover!
