Dammit Jim, I'm the Doctor!

By Phil Plait | December 22, 2008 3:37 pm

What happens when you take the two greatest things in the entire Universe and put them together?

This.

If you are a Trek and a Who fan, then watch the whole thing, until the very end of the teaser for Part II. It is without any fear of exaggeration or contradiction when I say that it is the best thing ever to have happened ever in the history of everness. Ever.

How can you not love this framegrab?

The TARDIS tractoring the Enterprise

Oh? What’s that? You prefer Space:1999? Behold!

    One of these days, I’m going to check out this Dr Who stuff that everyone seems so excited about.

    It’s good to see that production values on BBC shows in 2008 have finally caught up to U.S. TV shows from the 60s ūüėÄ

    It would be best if they used the Star Trek time travel episodes:

    Tomorrow is Yesterday
    City on the Edge of Forever
    Assignment Earth

  3. Brian

    I didn’t get the significance of your title until after watching the video. Now I wish it could have been an actual line.

    FANTASTIC! as Doc. number 9 would say.
    I still maintain however that this,

    is the greatest thing ever to have happened ever in the history of everness. Ever. And then some.

  5. Kyle

    OK I said “squeee” like a little school girl when I watched that. That was so cool.

  6. Fred Nurke

    Love the teaser with Davros/Pike!!!

  7. Voltaire

    No hyperbole in this post at all. That was amazing!

  8. Made of win. Totally, and completely, made of win.

    Alright, that’s it I’m doing a Dr. Phil Plait/Fallout 3 video. :)

  10. Or, you could try Star Trek Generations – Pirates of the Caribbean from the same guy…

    Hilarious.

    I prefer this mashup as the best thing in the history of everness or whatever.

    Great song, great cover, great editing, and lots of laughs.

  13. I’ve been a Doctor Who fan since I was eight, but I’ve never been into Trek. My vote for best American TV series in the same genre goes to Stargate.

    One thing that’s always bugged me is the way that an explosion or other violent event outside the TARDIS causes the inside of the TARDIS to shake violently. Being dimensionally transcendental ought to be an extremely effective dampener, if you think about the physics for two seconds. But as always, drama trumps logic.

  14. Barry

    How about going to slightly before Space 1999 to Gerry Anderson’s UFO?

  15. Hey thanks for the write up and all the kind words. Glad you enjoy it! Cool blog by the way.

    Happy Christams,

  16. I’d love to say that was the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while. But then I’d be lying. Interesting for the first 30 seconds yes. After that I it was just boring computer generated trickery. What is that saying people use… just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

  17. How the hell did they do that!? I never heard Scotty say, “Jackass”!

  18. @Adrian Morgan… you’ve oviously never seen the new Battlestar galactica! :)

    Seriously, anyone that does not like BSG needs to see a “Doctor”

  19. rjccj

    LMAO That’s fantastic. Good combination of two awesome things.

  20. DLC

    Wow!
    Just . . . Wow.
    That was so damn cool.

  21. anevilmeme

    Wow! “The Doctor & the Enterprise” comes to life.

  22. Ala'a

    LoooL! Loved it!!!!
    Now for the climax: they’ll encounter a black monolith with the dimensional aspect ratios of 1:4:9 ;-D

  23. Excellent!

    My favorite shot, though, was the TARDIS in the transporter bay, followed by the end shot and then the TARDIS – Enterprise shot.

  24. john

    The internet has come a long way since Jean Aireys’ The Doctor and the Enterprise!

  25. Ghede

    Holy crap, I think I just had a nerdgasm.

  26. THAT WAS GREAT.FUNNY,WHY NOT THIS COULD HAPPEN WITH THE DOCTOR WHEN IS THE DVD RELEASED MERRY CHRISTMAS 2008 HAPPY 2009
