I'm a fan of intercompany crossovers in comics, provided that they make some kind of sense as to why they happen, but unfortunately, very few of them do. After 35 years of both watching Star Trek: TOS and reading The Legion of Super Heroes, I saw IDW's announcement of this crossover and immediately thought: "Of course! Why hasn't someone done this already?" And then: "It'll make sense, right?" I'm still considering that last question after completing the STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPER HEROES collected edition, but overall, it was a fun read.

Separate actions taken by both the Enterprise crew and the LOSH intersect, thereby stranding both groups on a combined alternate Earth under the interstellar government of The Imperial Planets. It's not the Mirror Universe, but close. After the obligatory meet-and-fight, the Enterprise crew and the LOSH combine their abilities to determine how to put things back the way they were. Parallels are drawn between characters from the two timelines, and they find that their encounter with this alternate Earth is not the random mistake they thought it was. It's an interesting story, and considering the identity of the villain, it's a pretty logical idea for a crossover, but I feel that the execution could have been better. I'd like to go into this further, but to do so would give away too much of the plot. Suffice to say that I had to read it a second time and still am not sure if I completely understand it, but nobody ever said alternate realities were easy.

I am a huge fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes and of the Star Trek TOS--making me the ideal audience for Chris Roberson's attempt to bring them together. But, despite some solid art from Jeffrey Moy, I was less than impressed with this book.

There are some similarities between the Legion and Star Trek. Both are products of a more optimistic age, when creators could envision a future with an intergalactic body much like the United Nations overseeing scores of worlds with different races. Having Cpt. Kirk join forces with Cosmic Boy seems natural.

But there are problems with Roberson's attempt to bring the Legion and Star Trek together. The plot is, at best, mediocre with an anti-climatic ending that wraps things up a bit too easily. While Roberson has our heroes tackle time travel and other dimensions, the plot makes little sense and does little to hold the reader's attention.

Where Roberson helps salvage the book, though certainly he does not totally redeem it, is with characterization. It's fun to see Mr. Spock and Brainiac 5 interact. Roberson is also excellent with Kirk and Shadow Lass and some of their dialogue is very memorable. Perhaps the character who stands out the most is Dr. McCoy. Roberson is excellent on pulling the strings with the good doctor.

Despite these fine examples of characterization, this story is not memorable in the least--even to a fan of both Star Trek and the Legion. While not a bad book, the Star Trek/Legion crossover is disappointing despite some fine moments from Roberson and a solid job by Moy.

As a Trekkie and a Legionnaire, I quite enjoyed this cross-over. Some fans take this stuff so seriously but its an enjoyable team-up. Funny how when DC was publishing Trek, they never did a single crossover. At Marvel, the Trek gang were teamed with the X-men and that worked well too. I liked the artwork and the storyline plus all the covers were awesome (my favorite was Kirk and all the Legionnaire women). IDW did an excellent job and I hope they do it again with Trek Next Generation and an older Legion. Kudos to all involved with this project.

Well it was supposed to be a "double-alternate" universe story combining DC and Trek universes, it felt a bit disjointed from BOTH. And the story was pretty sterile. I guess I only got this book because I like both sets of characters, but alas, I was disappointed. I think an actual novel (with no pictures) would have done this more justice.

Let's face it...the thought of Spock V Brainiac 5 is enjoyable to contemplate. In Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes it comes true. As an added bonus, you get to see interactions between the Star Trek and DC Universes which are quite fun. All-in-all, the read was quite enjoyable. The artwork is competent as well.

From Star Trek, we have Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Chekov, and Sulu. Scotty stays on the Enterprise. From the League of Super Heroes, we have Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad, Brainiac 5, Chameleon Boy, and Shadow Lass. Both groups end up in an alternate reality where the planet Earth is the center of a conquering empire that stretches across many worlds.

The story follows the time honored meetings between heroes (or groups of heroes). First they fight and then team up to fight the common foe. I liked how both groups are portrayed for the most part. They both poke fun at something the other group does. The league points out how annoying Spock saying everything is fascinating. Shadow Lass shoots down several passes that Kirk makes. Kirk gets in a remark about The League using codenames instead of their real names.

Without giving away too much of the plot, I really like how the story took a known character from each franchise and related them to each other. Then they formed a new version for this new reality. The real answer to the puzzle of how this happened shouldn't be that big of a surprise. It is logical as Spock would say.

I did have a few minor qualms though. First, the Star Trek crew tended to treat the League as subordinates. While the Trek crew is very capable in a fight, l still think the League members should have done a little better considering their powers. My other problem was with some of the artwork. For the most part, the artwork was fine. At times though, the Trek crew looked as young as the League members (late teens or early twenties). This was most common with Kirk.

Like most good cross company, time travelling crossovers, once the problem was fixed, everyone forgot everything so no continuities were harmed. So it makes a nice addition to the Trek/ Dr. Who crossover and Trek/X-Men crossover (which is strangely enough not a graphic novel).
