Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Data and the rest of the crew will have their phasers set to ‘full stun’ next April when they cross paths with the Xenomorph.
The upcoming crossover comic series is titled “Acceptable Losses” and is helmed by the regular Star Trek creative team of the Tipton brothers and JK Woodward. The same team also worked on a Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover comic back in 2012. The Star Trek/Aliens comic is a collaboration between Dark Horse Comics and IDW Publishing.
No story details have been released so we can only speculate at this stage whether the Enterprise crew land on LV-426 of if Worf is having nightmares on the holodeck. Only time will tell.
2017 is set to be a big year for both franchises. Ridley Scott’s next film Aliens: Covenant is set for release in August, while the new series Star Trek: Discovery will premiere in May.
