This issue starts off where the last one left off with the away teams of Worf, Amy, Rory and some security guards about to enter the engine room with a ton of Borg while at the same time another group comprised of the Doctor, Captain Picard and Data are about to enter the Bridge with even more Borg. The two groups fight their way through making enough distractions for each other trying to keep the Cybermen occupied until the Enterprise arrives which they do with a surprise for the Cybermen in the form of a gold infused particle beam that weakens them greatly which allows away team to finally confront the Cyber-Controller. After a bit of a struggle, the away team get the upper hand and are able to destroy the Cybermen’s ship.

When we left the crew of the Enterprise and the TARDIS, the Doctor has convinced Captain Picard to work with the Borg to fight the Cybermen. This issue starts with an away team consisting of Picard, the Doctor, Worf, Data, Commander Riker, Amy and Rory meeting with a small group of Borg propose a course of action to fight the Cybermen. Things get tense when Riker recognizes the main Borg who is called the Conduit between the Borg and the Federation as a former Starfleet Officer that had been assimilated. The Conduit merely states that he was being used because he is familiar to the Enterprise crew and the away team along with the Conduit depart to the Enterprise.

So, this story has been amazing and with issue #5 we get even more goodness.  This issue starts out right where the last issue left off with Captain Picard refusing to help the Borg who are getting demolished by the Cybermen.  The Doctor tries very hard to show Picard his perspective and what would happen if they don’t offer the Borg assistance against the Cybermen.  The Doctor follows Picard into his ready room where eventually Guinan joins the conversation.  The Doctor explains to Guinan what is going on and with Captain Picard’s approval, Guinan explains to the Doctor in an amazing black and white flashback why Picard has such a hatred for the Borg.  While the Doctor and Guinan continue to explain to the Captain Picard why not helping the Borg against the Cybermen would be for the betterment of the whole universe as well as other universes, Picard won’t hear of it and orders his ship back to Earth in order to help the planets that have suffered at the hands of the combined Borg/Cybermen armada.

Well, looking at the cover of the story, I really thought we were going to get some good old fashion time traveling in this issue and we did from a certain point of view.  The issue starts with a confrontation between the Enterprise and the much bigger and ridiculously more powerful Borg/Cybermen armada.  The Enterprise makes a hasty exit and hides inside a nebula in order to escape the pursuing ship’s sensors.  As the Doctor explains to the crew of the Enterprise who the Cybermen are, Data searches the historical database for any matches and finds one that is very interesting considering that the incident involves the original Enterprise under the command of James T. Kirk.  It’s then that something happens to the Doctor as he seems to suddenly remember the incident and here comes the flashback.

With issue two of this particular fanboy’s dream team-up, we see a Enterprise adventure with Picard and his crew on a mission. The story starts off with Geordi and Data having a philosophical discussion about upgrading Data’s parts. Data counters that it’s the parts that he was created with that make him who he is and upgrading that would in a sense change that. The Enterprise’s mission supposed to be a simple meet and greet with a group of Starfleet Corps of Engineers on a planet where the local inhabitants aren’t the most welcoming of strangers. It turns out that the conditions these engineers are under for their mission is very hazardous and after an incident that causes the death of some of the engineer’s lives and injures more, the Enterprise makes arrangements for this group to get more help. When asked why the risk is so important, it’s revealed that the material that this group is mining for will help Starfleet get their fleet of ships up and running after the devastation of their loss at the Battle of Wolf 359. For those that aren’t in the know, that was a battle from a two part TNG episode called “The Best of Both Worlds” where Starfleet got their butts kicked good by the Borg.

I love Doctor Who. I love Star Trek in all it’s forms. (I even watched Enterprise) and when I heard that IDW was going to do a crossover story, I was so on board. Unfortunately I missed out on the first printing of #1. Now that I have the second printing in my hands, I can tell you that this was worth the wait.

The issue starts out with a Borg invasion Delta IV which for those that remember is the planet that Lt. Ilia was from. (She was in Star Trek: The Motion Picture) The Prime Minister of the planet mentions how unusually aggressive the Borg are being when someone notices that the Borg aren’t alone. The Borg are attacking the planet with the Cybermen.

We then see the Doctor, Amy and Rory in ancient Egypt. The Doctor does what he usually does so he can get an audience with the Pharaoh. The Pharaoh’s right hand man tries to get rid of the Doctor and his companions but panics when it’s revealed who the Doctor is. This is when we see that the Pharaoh’s right hand man was in fact a space alien that the Doctor quickly dispatches with a green crystal-like object.
