IDW Announces New Star Trek vs. Transformers Comic

From Doctor Who to Green Lantern, plenty of properties have crossed over with Star Trek.

Now, Starfleet's finest will be teaming up with the Autobots in an all-new limited series from IDW Publishing entitled Star Trek vs. Transformers. Interestingly, the new book will feature the Robots In Disguise looking like their classic 1984 cartoon counterparts, while the crew of the Enterprise will be made to resemble those we saw in the 1970's Star Trek animated series.

The first of four issues arrives in comic shops this September, hailing from writers John Barber and Mike Johnson, together with artist Philip Murphy and colorist Leonardo Ito.

Plot wise, the story will begin within the Star Trek Universe and see the crew of the I.S.S. Enterprise respond to a distress beacon near the border of Klingon space. Once there, the crew discovers a dilithium mine under attack from 20th century-era jets and helicopters; although of course we know they are much more than that.

Says Mike Johnson regarding the new series, "This is a crossover several decades in the making, and we could not be more thrilled to bring it to fans. John and I are having a blast writing the first meeting of Starfleet and Cybertronians, and Phil is the perfect artist to bring these two franchises together on the page."

Star Trek vs. Transformers hits this September.

And here's hoping it'll feature a conversation between Mr. Spock and Galvatron at some point!
