PUBLICATION: Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2 #6, IDW Comics, October 2012
CREATORS: Scott and David Tipton (writers), Gordon Purcell and J.K. Woodward (artists)
STARDATE: Unknown (follows previous issue).
PLOT: The captain of the Potemkin is turned into Conduit, a Borg voice-box who helps the Enterprise figure out how to stop the Cybermen who have shut down, and will soon absorb, the Collective. They first go get gold (poisonous to Cybermen) from Naia VII (issue 1), then the Doctor and his companions go back in time to the Battle of Wolf 359 to get a copy of the Borg executive library wiped by the Cybermen.
CONTINUITY: See previous issues (Borg, Cybermen, Delta IV, USS Potemkin, Wolf 359). Wolf 359 reminds the Doctor of "Bad Wolf" (Doctor Who Series 1). Rory believes you can cross your own timeline based on the events of The Christmas Carol. The Doctor comes face to face with Locutus right in the middle of The Best of Both Worlds.
DIVERGENCES: None, except the anomalies from the Whoniverse that have appeared in the Star Trek universe.
