A little preview of J.K. Woodwards TNG/Doctor Who

The Comics Dispatch podcast has this week released an interview with J.K. Woodward, in which, among other things, he discusses his work as the illustrator of the forthcoming Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover Assimilation2. He stayed pretty tight lipped about any real details, but did note that he was advised the series is set between seasons five and six of TNG, which informed his presentation of the characters. He also noted that it is one story told in eight parts, rather than a series of one-shots. Although he did note something else going on in the third issue, where he expects another artist may be involved:
I'm probably going to have a little help on issue three, because there's a separate story there; I can't go too much into that.
The Comics Dispatch also posted a couple of panels from the series, which manage to cram in an Andorian, the Borg, a runabout, and someone with a big pink collar:

(a) Thank you for keeping us all abreast of what's going on in the world of Star Trek. I love your blog. (b) The fellow in the second frame with the pink collar looks like Ruk from the episode "What Are Little Girls Made Of?".

Actually, the person in the pink coller looks like it might be a Deltan.

VorpalK said...

Definitely looks like Ilia's collar. Given the theme of the series, could this be one of V'Gers drones patterned on her? or just another Deltan in a similar outfit.

Hey, thanks for listening to our show! Live long and prosper.

Thank you for getting the interview out there Andy!

I think the pink collar looks more Deltan myself too. But I hope it has nothing to do with trying to mangle together V'Ger and the Borg, again!
