The Mirror Universe has been visited in one episode of , five episodes of , a two-part episode of and a storyline in , as well as several non-canon Star Trek tie-in works. Mind you, being set in the mirror universe, it wasn't really standard Star Trek fare; there was a lot more violence and sexual references than normal for Star Trek.

Mirror Universe

If you've enjoyed the mirror universe stories before you will definitely also like these, but it is just sad to see otherwise great stories to be stripped down just to fit into the format of a short :- Although the concept was a good one to try to integrate the different series of the Star Trek captains and weave various seperate stories jumping through time, I feel the book fails as a whole. It resembles the fictional universe in which the Star Trek television series takes place, but is separate from the main universe. This was ok, although it's been a while since I read the previous Voyager story and I couldn't quite remember where all the characters had been left. I enjoyed it a lot and recommend it highly. I will admit that I found myself questioning continuity at certain points, as some of the stories seemed to conflict with previously done stories in the other anthologies. I agree with the comments that this would've been better as 3-4 longer novellas that wrapped things up more. And the authors are some of the finest of the stable that works in the Trek universe.

This isn't bad, although it suffers from inconsistent characterisation: they start out by portraying April as a merciless leader, then show that he's all warm and squishy on the inside. The collection draws on not only the Trek shows, but various series of literature like Vanguard, Stargazer, and Titan. I will admit I did not read the ones about the classic Star Trek characters. I will admit I did not read the ones about the classic Star Trek characters. That makes this book for more palatable than some of the earlier books in the series.

Whereas the universe depicts an optimistic future in which the Earth-based values peace, co-operation and exploration, episodes set in the Mirror Universe feature the human-dominated Terran Empire which values war, despotism and conquest instead. I have now read four of the five books in this series; this is the strongest so far. As I have mentioned in my other reviews, I am a huge fan of the Mirror, Mirror universe for the sheer variation and number of conflicts that can come about. What I don't like about the regular universe are the fact that the characters can't change.
