Star Trek And Transformers Crossover - IDW

Animated Star Trek And Transformers Crossover!

There is certainly a lot to love about both the 1973 animated Star Trek as well as 1984’s The Transformers. The fact that now IDW is giving us a Star Trek and Transformers crossover set in those universes. Well, that is indeed an amazing bit of news and has to be shared. I also want to add that we need to thank io9 for the news about this upcoming Star Trek and Transformers crossover event.

When I was growing up I was lucky enough to catch the Star Trek animated series on local television. Every Sunday after Church, I was able to plop down on my Grandparent’s living room floor and watch it. I had of course already been introduced to the original television series. While I was thrilled to see the animated versions of Kirk, Spock, and Scotty. It was absolutely the addition though of crew members Arex and M’Ress I loved most.

I have spoken quite a bit before on my love of The Transformers. There are many times after closing the arcade down for the night. I will just pull up a chair at the snack bar and pop in one of the 1984 to 1987 series. Although I will certainly admit that nothing beats that very first afternoon when I was introduced to The Transformers.

Now officially the name of the upcoming comic book series is Star Trek Vs. Transformers. Also of note is of course this isn’t the first time the crew of a Star Trek series has participated in a comic book crossover. X-Men, Planet of the Apes, Green Lantern and more.

Having said that though, an Star Trek and Transformers crossover by way of the animated series is incredibly exciting.

The series which debuts in September, is written by Mike Johnson as well as John Barber. With art being handled by Philip Murphy and colorist Leonardo Ito. Thanks to that exclusive to io9 a couple of days ago. We also have this press release:

“This is a crossover several decades in the making, and we could not be more thrilled to bring it to fans,” Johnson said in a press release provided to io9. “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.”

It is only a couple of months away until the release of the miniseries. Just enough time to decide on whether they will include the obvious catch phrase.
