The Most Bizarre Crossovers in Star Trek


Over the last 50 years Star Trek has crossed streams with a lot of different franchises, this video breaks down the wackiest Star Trek crossovers.

Star Trek has had some wacky crossovers, there’s no debating that. Our friend Ketwolski has put together a video outlining his top Star Trek crossovers. Prepare to boldly get weird.

Geronimo and engage!

Most of these crossovers happen in the comics, but there’s one very special crossover that Ketwolski missed that was live on television…

There are so many important and special moments in Star Trek history, from having a diverse cast in the 1960’s to addressing social issues in the 1980’s, but there’s one moment that for me will always stand out.

I grew up in the 1980’s and two of my favorite shows were Star Trek: The Next Generation and Webster. So when Mr. Worf appeared on an episode of Webster it was a very special moment for me.

The basic plot is that Webster is playing a video game in his room when lighting strikes his house and then he’s transported to the bridge of the Enterprise. Let me just say that as an adult I now realize that this is a terrible message to send. Between this episode of Webster and super heroes getting powers from lightning I think I was actively trying to get struck as a child.

Worf is of course immediately worried about the intruder on his bridge, which leads to this amazing shot.

Seriously it even has the 1980’s sweater, that’s the best Star Trek screen ever.

Worf and Webster discuss many things on the bridge of the enterprise and of course dancing breaks out at one point, because it’s 1989 and that’s how things roll.

Basically this was a Webster / Star Trek: The Next Generation crossover that turned into a clip show. Webster starts explaining things like having fun and dancing to Worf so that they can show a bunch of clips from the series. All good sitcoms of the 1980’s had a clip show. It was an easy and cheap way to get an episode out and use old footage. Not all shows used the Enterprise D to make their clip show though, that’s where Webster went above and beyond the call.

It’s such a strange moment in Television and I’ve been looking for a copy of it for years, so if you come across this gem on your internet journeys be sure to let me know.
