Star Trek crossover with Transformers announced

Star Trek has face many crossovers over the years. X-Men, Legion Of Super Heroes, Planet Of The Apes, Green Lantern and now…Transformers?

Starfleet will collide with the Autobots in the upcoming comic book crossover from Dark Horse comics.

The series will launch this September from the creative team of writers John Barber and Mike Johnson, alongside artist Philip Murphy and colorist Leonardo Ito. The series—which will run for four issues—is inspired by the aesthetic and continuities from the cartoon iterations of both Trek and Transformers: the 1973 cult classic Star Trek: The Animated Series, and the original 1984 Transformers show.

The series will begin in the Star Trek universe, when the U.S.S. Enterprise answers a distress call on the edge of Klingon Space, only to find a dilithium mine under attack from 20th century-era jets and helicopters. When a certain red truck shows up to lend a hand, however, Kirk and the crew discover that there’s more than meets the eye to their new vehicular friends and foes.
