This is an interesting twist. IDW and DC comics have teamed up (for the first time) to produce a Star Trek and Legion of Superheroes crossover comic spanning 6 issues. You can guess that this will of course be centered around a parallel universe type plot.
Here’s the official plot summary from IDW:
STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES tells the tale of the original crew of the Starship Enterprise, who beam down to a planet only to discover that the planet isn’t their intended destination, or even in the right universe. At the same time, a group of “Great Darkness Saga” Legionnaires inside a time sphere find themselves cast into the 23rd century, but it’s not the 23rd century as they know it, either. STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES is a galaxy-spanning adventure that draws both teams together to face a menace that includes Khunds, Klingons, Borg, and other threats that aren’t quite as they should be. The egalitarian United Planets in one universe and a United Federation of Planets in another is now the Imperial Planets of Terra, a dark empire focused on war and conquest, and that’s just the beginning for this special series.
Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief AND Lead Editor on this crossover had this to say:
“Nothing like kicking off our first foray into DC Comics’ Super Heroes with a story that spans dimensions and centuries.”
“As a huge fan of both of these teams and the eras we’re playing with here, as well as an admirer of the talents involved with this tale, I couldn’t be happier.”
