The Star Trek mega-event I.D.I.C. brings together all of these worlds for one huge, universe-threatening adventure.

“The Vulcan philosophy of celebrating ‘Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations’ is one of acceptance, but can the universe accept the simultaneous existence of multiple realities?
