Four decades in the making, it’s the crossover that fans have demanded! Kirk, Spock, and Autobots! Decepticons and Klingons! Optimus Prime and the Prime Directive!

When Kirk, Spock, and the entire crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise investigate problems at a remote mine, they’re met with an explosive battle between powerful warriors who change into vehicles from the 20th century! As the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons rages, it’s up to Kirk to decide—does he violate the Prime Directive and interfere in a war that’s raged for millennia? And how will the Klingons complicate the issue? It’s cartoony fun between two of the most popular science fiction franchises in the world!

Transformers Hall of Famer John Barber and the world’s most prolific Star Trek comics writer, Mike Johnson, team up with artists Philip Murphy and Jack Lawrence to tell an adventure that could only appear in comics!

“If I am being honest, I want more. I would love to see this crossover grow into some spectacular universe where the Autobots join the Federation and the Borg and Decepticons form the scariest alliance anyone has ever seen. Alas, a crossover lover can dream.” -But Why Tho?

“This is honestly one of my favorite recent stories of either franchise.” -Major Spoilers

Star Trek Vs Transformers broke all the rules of a typical comic book team-up and it was fantastic! This is the type of crossover any publisher should look to emulate!” -Outright Geekery
