After picking up the first issue of Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2 from IDW Publishing, I decided to take a trip back in time and read what is probably the first Trek/Who crossover by Jean Airey. There are a dozen different printed editions of this book. I read the original text which is available online and was published in 1981.

The verdict? Ms. Airey tells an interesting tale, but it's mostly a character study of Kirk, Spock and the Doctor. The plot meanders quite a bit. The Enterprise finds itself in the Doctor's universe, needing his help to get back home. Kirk is suspicious of the Doctor's motives but is won over. I liked the story, but it doesn't really go anywhere, so this is probably only for hardcore Trekkies and Whovians with some curiosity.
