Crossover with DW and Torchwood

1. Present and Future Tense by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 6] (1971 words)

Thanks to the Fiction Workshop Group at TDE for the many helpful suggestions and ideas! It made this chapter so much better! 

Timeline Note: Star Trek Enterprise Beginning of Season 5. Doctor Who: Season 4 (Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble). Though we will be all over the map as far as times go. It's a TARDIS, go figure.

Spoilers for this Chapter: ENT "Future Tense" 

2. The Maze of Impossible Rooms by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 1] (2935 words)

Trip and Malcolm explore what's inside the Tardis and find more questions than answers.

Notes to DW/Torchwood newbies: Captain Jack Harkness is the leader of Torchwood Three and a friend of the Doctor's. He was one of the Ninth and Tenth's Doctor's companions for a little while (and a Time Agent from the 51stcentury). Trip and Malcolm assume he's the TARDIS's owner, since they don't know him. (And Jack's speaks with an American accent, not an English one). You'll actually see Jack later. Owen is Dr. Owen Harper, Torchwood Three's medic.

The Chameleon Circuit is the device that's supposed to hide the TARDIS by making it look like something more appropriate to the time it's landed in. Problem is, it got stuck, and so the TARDIS is stuck in the form of the 60's Police Box.

Can you identify the various Doctors whose clothes are in the wardrobe? And the other costumes from a certain actor appreciation thread? :-p And Malcolm finds the infamous wandering swimming pool mentioned in DW “The Eleventh Hour”.

Spoilers: ENT “Dead Stop”, “United”, “Twilight”, “In A Mirror Darkly, I” Doctor Who “The Eleventh Hour” “Victory of the Daleks.”

Thank you to EntAllat for the beta for this chapter!

3. A Girl and her Sehlat by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 2] (3903 words)

Trip and Malcolm set out to return the sehlat to its rightful owner, but there are unknown dangers on Vulcan's Forge, like le-matyas. A picture of one of those is shown on Memory Alpha under its entry.

Spoilers ENT: "Desert Crossing", "Home". DW: "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances" (Ninth Doctor/Rose, this is the episode where Captain Jack Harkness is introduced)

PS: I believe the TARDIS is definitely alive and has a mind of its own. And yeah, that's a sonic screwdriver.

4. Interlude in Infinity 1: More Questions, Less Answers by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 4] (2518 words)

Trip and Malcolm try to puzzle out the TARDIS's systems. They discover some of the ship's history and clues as to whom the TARDIS belongs to. (We know, but our heroes don't. Yet.) Trip finds out one of Malcolm's well-kept secrets regarding Hoshi. Later, they land in a very familiar place, but Trip finds that the ship has her own plans for Malcolm.

That plaque is really located under the floor of the control console of the TARDIS, with that exact inscription. "Authorised" is the British spelling of "authorized", and since that's the original spelling, I kept it that way.

Spoilers: ENT "Shockwave I/II", "Home", "Affliction/Divergence".  Can you guess which of the Companions Trip sees in the vision from the TARDIS?

5. Paradoxes in Paradise by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 3] (4590 words)

Trip discovers Risa's other pleasures that he skipped the first time around. He also picks up more clues to the mysterious "Doctor" and "Rose", and meets a uniquely familiar Captain...

This isn't exactly the same as "Two Days and Two Nights". How many differences can you spot? And a nod to a certain piece of fan artwork? LOL! (Sorry, Bluetiger. This just fit perfectly in this chapter. :-p)

Spoilers: ENT "Two Days and Two Nights", "Acquisition". Torchwood, "Captain Jack Harness". (BTW, Harper's dead, but he isn't gone forever. He'll be back.) Kanar is a Cardassian alcoholic drink (TNG "The Wounded", DS9). Nuvian Masseuses are mentioned in ENT "Fallen Hero" and a Nuvian female was seen in ENT "Raijin".)

6. Interlude in Infinity 2: Oops, Wrong Doctor. by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 4] (4039 words)

Malcolm's tight-lipped over what happened between him and the other universe's Hoshi. Trip finally meets the Doctor. Sort of, and it's the wrong one, but Trip picks up more valuable clues as to why he and Malcolm were "chosen" by the TARDIS. And how are the Doctor and Daniels connected?

Trip finds out Harper's real persona, but not his real name. And being a Time/Temporal Agent isn't as easy as it sounds.

Later, our duo stumble over the scene of a tragedy. How can they change it?

Spoilers! (Hee!): ENT "Two Days and Two Nights", "Acquisition", "Shockwave I and II", "First Flight", "Similitude", "Twilight".

Doctor Who: "Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead", "The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone", "The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang" 

Torchwood: "Captain Jack Harkness"

7. Dawn before Twilight by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 5] (2575 words)

Trip and Malcolm tackle their most difficult time correction yet, for personal reasons. There are two time jumps in the chapter (2165 and 2153).

ENT "The Expanse","Twilight" 

One of the questions I always had w/the whole Xindi arc: Wouldn't Earth have any planetary defense systems when the initial weapon appeared in 2153? I thought the lack of them was pretty weird. If they were destroyed, that fact would have been mentioned.


Doctor Who: "Tooth and Claw", "The Sound of Drums", "The End of Time Parts I and II"

The Time War occurred sometime between the Eighth Doctor (played by Paul McGann, the "last Classic" Doctor Who) and the Ninth Doctor (Chris Eccleston, the first of the "New" Doctor Who). It involves the Time Lords of Gallifrey and the Daleks and ended with the destruction of the Doctor's home. The details of the Time War aren't clear, but the Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctors imply that he (the Eighth Doctor at the time) made the fateful decision to destroy Gallifrey to save the rest of the Universe. It's implied that the Doctor is now the last of his race.

The whole incident was put under a Time Lock so no one (the Doctor included) could time-travel back to it and change the outcome. In"The End of Time", the Time Lords escape and attempt to take over Earth. Of course the Doctor stops them, but to save one of his Companions, he absorbs over a million rads of radiation (which triggers his regeneration into the Eleventh Doctor).


James MacCrimmon was the name of one of the Second Doctor's Companions. He was a Scotsman from the 1746 Jacobite Rebellion that was saved by the Doctor. The Tenth Doctor used "Doctor Jamie MacCrimmon" as an alias when he and Rose Tyler met Queen Victoria in "Tooth and Claw". 

8. Battle for Earth's Survival by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 4] (2864 words)

Trip and Malcolm coordinate efforts to destroy the Xindi Weapon before it devastates Earth in this timeline. Will they be successful?

Spoilers for ENT "The Expanse", "E²", and some lines from "Twilight". And I adapted the self-destruct code from "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock." I'm sure the NX-01 has one, but thank goodness Archer never got around to using it...

And maybe a wee technological borrowing from TNG "Best of Both Worlds, Pts I and II".

Doctor Who: "Reverse the polarity of the neutron flow". This is one of my favorite technobabble lines, first uttered by the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee). Yes, this was before "Ghostbusters" in 1984 and "Star Trek the Next Generation" in 1987.

"Why do you have to be so...Human?!" The Eleventh Doctor said this to Rory in "The Big Bang".

9. Even Heroic Acts have Consequences in Time and Space by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 5] (2441 words)

Trip and Malcolm discover there are far-reaching consequences of time travel. Especially when your ride is a month late. Some Trip and Malcolm angst in this chappie...don't worry, things will turn out all right in the end. But keep the tissues handy.

Spoilers: ENT "Terra Prime"

I was watching DW "The Doctor's Daughter" while I was writing this chapter.

10. Interlude in Infinity 3: The Death Zone by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 4] (2889 words)

Trip meets two of the Tenth Doctor's previous Companions, and more pieces of the Temporal puzzle fall into place. You find out the Doctor has been to Vulcan before. Sort of.

Spoilers: ENT "Shockwave I and II", "Storm Front I and II"

DW: "The Doctor's Daughter" and the movie "The Five Doctors"

Other Notes: The Death Zone was an area of Gallifrey where the Time Lords used people in 'The Game'. The object of The Game was to find the Tomb of Rassilon (or the Tower of Rassilon) and escape the Death Zone safely. There were mountains, marshes, thick mists, and complicated traps that made the Game deadly.

The Companions traveled with the Doctor in his various incarnations. The ones listed in this chapter are Martha Jones (Ten), Donna Noble (Ten), Jenny (the Tenth Doc's daughter, but not a real companion), Romana I and II (Four), Sarah Jane Smith (Three and Four), K-9 Mark II (Sarah Jane's "pet", Four), Jo Grant (Three), Grace Holloway (Eight) Amy Pond (Eleven), Rory Williams (Eleven), River Song (Future Companion (?))

Note: There's one important Companion missing from this list. Who is it?

Ianto Jones, Owen Harper, Gwen Cooper and Toshiko Sato were the other members of Jack Harkness's Torchwood. Martha worked with them for a time.

11. He Flies through Space with the Greatest of Ease... by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 4] (3122 words)

Trip finally figures out how to fly the TARDIS...sort of. He and Malcolm need to save Lorian's Enterprise from destruction from the Kovaalans. This chapter is heavy on the TnT (plus Lorian). And the TARDIS has wiped their memories of their last adventure, so as far as they're concerned, it never happened. (Though we know better).

Spoilers: "E²", "These are the Voyages". And here is my theory on why The Abomination makes completely no sense at all. 

12. Even Bicycles Come with Instructions... by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 6] (3954 words)

Malcolm reveals what happened on Risa. The two expand on the Schroedinger's Cat (or in this case, Schroedinger's Sehlat) theory (thanks, Honeybee!). The TARDIS gives a partial explanation of why Trip and Malcolm were "chosen" out of the Enterprise crew. They discover where the ship's engine is located...as well as the elusive Control Flight Manual.

Spoilers: ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights", E², Shockwave I and II, Countdown

DW: "Journey's End" The Doctor Who Movie (1996)

"Journey's End" reveals that the TARDIS was built for six pilots to fly her, but the when the Doctor fled Gallifrey, he was the only one who knew enough to do it. The Tenth Doctor needed all his current and former companions to fly the TARDIS to save Earth in "Journey's End."

The ivy-covered corridors are called Cloisters. The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) told his companion Adric not to bother him if he decided to go there. The Cloisters lead to the Cloister Room, which is where the TARDIS's engine is (the Eye of Harmony). You don't see the Cloister Room until the 1996 Doctor Who Movie and the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann). And yeah, seeing directly into the Eye of Harmony can be hazardous to your temporal health.

The "TARDIS Flight Manual" was first discovered by Romana, one of the Fourth Doctor's companions. The Doctor never liked doing anything by the book. Peri (a friend of the Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker) found it, propping open a vent. The Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) said he eventually threw it into a supernova because he disagreed with it.

13. The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions... by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 6] (3327 words)

Trip and Malcolm find out that the results of their actions may have unforeseen consequences in a particular universe. Trip finally talks with the mysterious Rose and discovers what has happened to the Doctor. The final showdown with Future Guy is on the horizon.

Spoilers: ENT "Countdown", "Zero Hour"

The TARDIS materializing around its occupants happened (albeit in reverse) in DW "Blink". 

"Do you two wanna be alone?" In DW "School Reunion", Rose Tyler meets Sarah Jane Smith, a previous companion of the Doctor (Third and Fourth, to be exact). The two women compare notes about their Doctors, and both find out he still talks to the TARDIS like it was his girlfriend. Rose makes this remark and Sarah Jane bursts out laughing.

In DW "Turn Left", Donna Noble makes a decision that alters her universe, where the Doctor died. The TARDIS is later stripped for parts to send Donna back to that point in time to correct it. The TARDIS had basically given up and "died" along with the Doctor.

DW "Rose": The first word the Ninth Doctor said to Rose Tyler was "Run." In "The Eleventh Hour", the Eleventh Doctor tells the Atraxi, "Hello, I'm the Doctor. Basically...run."

DW "The Waters of Mars" The Doctor saves a woman who was supposed to die, and in doing so, becomes drunk with arrogance and power. He declares "Time is not the boss of me." The woman later dies by her own hand to restore the time line. The Doctor realizes his hubris, but he knows his time is almost up...

"Time Lord Victorious" is what he calls himself during his delusional state.


14. Brilliant Lights and Dark Mirrors by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 3] (2730 words)

Team TARDIS gains two members. Trip and Malcolm find themselves in a universe much darker than their own. They must impersonate their darker doubles to find Future Guy and the Doctor.

Spoilers: ENT: "Shuttlepod One", "Two Days and Two Nights", "Shockwave I and II", "In a Mirror Darkly, I and II"

DW: "The Parting of the Ways", "Doomsday", "Journey's End", "The Waters of Mars"

Torchwood: "Captain Jack Harkness"

Rose's Superphone: The Tenth Doctor modified Martha Jones' cell phone to call anywhere, anywhen in the Universe. Here, Rose had simply borrowed it from Martha and forgot to give it back.

Rose in a parallel universe: In "Doomsday", Rose is sucked into a parallel universe, separating her from the Doctor. She's trapped there, and ends up working for that Universe's Torchwood (and eventually leads that organization).

Jack's 'Immortality': In "The Parting of the Ways", Jack is killed by the Daleks. Rose looks into the Heart of the TARDIS and uses that power to destroy the Dalek fleet. She inadvertently brings Jack back to life, but they discover that he can't permanently die. After each 'death', he returns to life (a painful process).

Time Vortex Manipulator: A device similar to a watch that Jack uses to teleport between universes. 

15. Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 5] (3595 words)

Timeline note: This is a different version of the MU, one corrupted by Future Guy. Certain people aren't who they should be...Trip, Malcolm and Team TARDIS must restore this universe to the 'proper' MU universe.

Another version of the Doctor gives Trip a much needed assist. Which Doctor is it? Who's the blond man Trip sees near the end of the chapter? And anyone have a guess as to the identity of "Admiral Tonek"?

Spoilers: ENT "Broken Bow" "Shuttlepod One", "In a Mirror Darkly, I and II"

DW: "Rose", "The Empty Child", "The Waters of Mars", "The Last of the Timelords"

TW: "Captain Jack Harkness"

Four settings on the pistol: Double the settings that Malcolm tells Captain Archer in "Broken Bow" :-D

Perception Filter: Used by the Tenth Doctor, Jack and Martha in "The Last of the TimeLords", plus it makes an appearance during the Eleventh Doctor's adventures. It alters the brainwaves of whoever's observing the person wearing the filter. The TARDIS has one, but it doesn't work.

"Most planets have a North." ("Rose") Rose Tyler asked the Ninth Doctor about his Northern accent, and this is his reply. Actor Christopher Eccleston is from Salford, Lancashire, UK.

"Yup, all sonic'ed up." The Doctor says this to Jack in "The Empty Child".

16. The Calm before the Oncoming Storm... by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 4] (3844 words)

Trip and Malcolm get a nasty surprise concerning Atlantis's technology. You see more MU denizens, some in very different posts. 

The latter half of this chapter is TnT, and another version of R/S.

Spoilers: ENT "Minefield" "Shockwave I and II", "Storm Front I and II"

DW: "The Sound of Drums/The Last of the Timelords"

Some clarification: Mac is the Ninth Doctor (Chris Eccleston), the 'Emperor' is the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), the blond man seen at the end of the last chapter is the Master (as played by John Simms). You'll see who 'Tonek' is in the next chapter.

Also remember that Trip believes that the title of 'Doctor' is passed from person to person. He doesn't know about regeneration. So he doesn't know Nine and Ten (and Eleven, for that matter) is actually the same man,just at different times!

And where is Daniels? He'll show up very soon!

17. Crossing the Temporal Rubicon by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 1] (3493 words)

The attack Fleet receives its final orders from the Time Lord Victorious. Admiral Tonek's identity is confirmed. Trip and Malcolm discover they are again in mortal danger, but not just from the scheming members of their crew.

ENT "Shockwave I and II", "Storm Front I and II", "In a Mirror Darkly, I and II"

DW: "The Runaway Bride", "Human Nature", "The Waters of Mars"

Sarah Jane Adventures: "The Bane",  "The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith", "The Death of the Doctor"

Artron energy: Anyone who travels through the Time Vortex absorbs this as 'background radiation". As a result, all the Doctor's companions have this to some degree, some more than others, and some tolerate it more than others. Jo Grant and Sarah Jane Smith both have elevated amounts of artron energy, so much that the Bane commented on it. 

18. The Battle at Zero Point by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 2] (3978 words)

Trip and Malcolm make it home to their own universe, but they must find a way to stop the Time Lord Victorious and Future Guy.

Plenty of cameos from various characters in Enterprise and Doctor Who in this chapter. Any guesses as to the identity of Trafalgar's captain? (The name is a clue.)

Spoilers ENT "Storm Front", "In a Mirror, Darkly I and II"

Doctor Who: "The Three Doctors", "The Parting of the Ways", The Doctor Who Movie (1996).

Technically, Trip isn't the first American in the TARDIS. And surprisingly, Jack Harkness wasn't the first, either. Peri Brown (Fifth/Sixth Doctor's Companion) was supposed to be American, but she was played by an Englishwoman (and wasn't really convincing as as American).

Who is who? (Ha, ha!)

Smoking Jacket= Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee)

The Hobo= Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton)

Bug-Eyed Man= Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker)

Victorian Man=Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann)

Tweed= Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith)

Three and Eight wear similiar style clothing, Two and Eleven as well.

19. Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Whimey by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 2] (3859 words)

Trip helps turns the tide against Future Guy and the Time Lord Victorious. Another version of the Doctor and Daniels reveal just who Future Guy might be. Team TARDIS is reunited, and Malcolm meets an unexpected visitor.

Quotes from various ENT episodes are in bold.

ENT: "Shuttlepod One", "Shockwave I and II", "First Flight", "The Expanse", "Similitude", "E2", "Home", "Affliction", "Divergence", "Terra Prime"

DW: "The Parting of the Ways", "Doomsday", "Utopia", "Human Nature", "The Family of Blood", "Time Crash" (Children in Need 2006, featuring the Fifth and Tenth Doctors),"The Last of the Time Lords"

The Cricketer=Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison). [I wanted to sneak him in there somewhere, as he's one of my favorite Doctors, not to mention Peter Davison is David Tennant's future father-in-law)

20. Old Endings, New Beginnings by Lady Rainbow [Reviews - 3] (2199 words)

Trip has an extended chat with the Doctor while Malcolm spends time with his daughter. The two men return to the Enterprise, in their own time, and decide to start the new year, 2156, off right.

Spoilers: ENT: "Carbon Creek"

DW: "The Doctor's Daughter", "The Last of the Time Lords"

This is the final chapter of this adventure...though Time goes on. Will there be a sequel? Ssshhh...SPOILERS!
