spock: logic is sexy

Things I want (and probably cannot have)

Item #1 on this list is currently a Star Trek/Torchwood crossover wherein Vulcan artifacts, or maybe even katras are falling through time and space in the wake of the Narada's destruction. Naturally, they would fall into a strange rift that leads to Cardiff. Naturally, someone(s) from the crew of the Enterprise would have to go and collect them so that they do not interfere with the space time continuum. Or because Vulcan artifacts should be preserved at all costs. Or because you can't leave something as precious as katras to run around Cardiff all by themselves. Of course, if some self-sacrificing crew member went through this portal to get the Vulcan stuff, they might not be able to come back...

Clearly, Torchwood has regained my love. I should probably find a show to watch that's on the air right now because it is ridiculously fun to share all my thoughts and reactions, and it would be ridiculously funner more fun if people were squeeing right along with me instead of thinking that my new favorite show is old news.
I like this crossover idea a lot. Presumably any crew from the Enterprise would be focussed on preventing any of these practically ancient humans from Earth from discovering anything, while Team Torchwood would be trying to figure out why strange things and people were turning up in Cardiff (this time around)?

At least if you're missing the squeeing, you're also missing the nastiness. I watched most of Torchwood after the fact, but the series 3/special episodes when they aired and fandom reaction wasn't what I'd call fun. [ETA: Except just going back and reading some of your reaction posts... yeah, it's probably true you'd get better responses if the show were currently airing. I just can't think of anything to say that isn't a spoiler!]

Yes, exactly! Torchwood would be all suspicious of these human interlopers, who seem kind of clueless and bumbling because they are not very good at dealing with the limitations of 21st century technology. Of course, our Star Trek crew would be determined to protect these poor, bumbling humans from finding out about aliens, because obviously that would blow their minds and alter the space-time continuum...

This is bad. I am seriously thinking of signing up for big bang so I can write this.
That is a fascinating idea for a crossover. Perhaps the Vulcan katras are propelled out of their time by the psychic shock or sth. to do with the Narada and once in Cardiff, they're wreaking havoc on some of the more sensitive members of the local population...

Of course, if some self-sacrificing crew member went through this portal to get the Vulcan stuff, they might not be able to come back...

The bridge crew is going to have a fight over who gets to go. XD
While Spock and Kirk are tussling over it, McCoy hyposprays them both, Chekov jumps through and Sulu follows hard on his heels?
I think the hard thing is deciding who would go. Spock would be the logical choice for collecting Vulcan ephemera, and he might even feel it is a moral imperative to do so. But who else? Gaila to be sexy fun, and because I miss writing them as BFFs? Or it could be someone who is ridiculously unequipped for the job but gets sucked into the rift by accident while everyone else is debating...

I am in danger of signing up for big bang in order to write this.
I am thinking that the black hole Nero created altered the space-time continuum in some way, which probably interacted with the rift and sucked some Vulcan objects or souls into the Cardiff's rift. And I like the idea of katras messing with the local population - it would probably look a bit like an alien invasion to Jack and Co.

I am seriously contemplating signing up for big bang in order to write this.
