The Interstellar Convergence, also known as EVE Online x Doctor Who, was a limited time crossover event collaboration between the massive multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) EVE Online and Doctor Who, released between 13 January and 1 February 2022.[1][2][3][4][5]

Synopsis[[edit]]

The world of Doctor Who has come to New Eden in EVE's first major crossover, The Interstellar Convergence. Running from 13 Jan to 1 Feb, this limited time event focusses on the quest to track down and repel an iconic evil – the Doctor’s notorious foes, the Daleks. Track down items that unlock new areas of space, unearth rewards and themed items, and go to battle with the Daleks themselves.

Plot[[edit]]

Due to "chronological complications" that Gallifrey endures during the Time War, Gallifrey, Bronze Daleks, and many artefacts from the Doctor's universe appears in a remote area of another universe, New Eden, for a brief time.

The inhabitants of New Eden, a large society of alliances and empires that either battle or trade with one another, use the artefacts to track down the Daleks — known as Biomechanoid Combat Units to the Capsuleers — and face off against them in an interstellar battle.

Story notes[[edit]]

  • The Interstellar Convergence was covered in the "When Worlds Collide" article in DWMSE 62, about the games Doctor Who crossed over with in 2022.
    • The article detailed how the "Doctor Who and BBC teams [had] reached to [CCP Games] a few years ago with the idea of doing something together. The thought was initially for the two established sci-fi worlds to tip their hats to one another, but as we unleashed our creative - and Doctor Who loving - brains on what we could do, the project took on its own life."
    • The article also gave a brief summary of the plot of The Interstellar Convergence and the "healthy debate" and "initial concerns" the collaboration spawned among "some fans" of "both communities", although the reception was "ultimately very positive".
