(written from a Production point of view)
A crossover between Marvel's X-Men superhero team and the original Star Trek crew.
The insane, reality-altering Mutant called Proteus has found a kindred spirit in a nearby universe— Gary Mitchell. The two power-mad beings are drawing their two realities together; and the X-Men, the Shi'Ar Empire and the crew of the Enterprise must try to stop them— or both universes will be destroyed.
