Synopsis

When the Mirror Universe was first encountered in the Original Series episode 'Mirror Mirror', it was a immediate hit with Star Trek viewers, a success which was repeated when subsequent series -- most notably several episodes of Deep Space Nine -- revisited this most intriguing of parallel worlds. Now the next in the sequence of Mirror Universe anthologies spanning more than two hundred years of Star Trek history features a dozen new twisted tales from the other universe -- a sinister yet eerily familiar setting where history has taken a different turn. Here the heroes and crewmen we know and love are transformed into radically altered and even opposing characters -- brutal and ruthless versions of themselves. Throw restraint to the winds and indulge the dark side with some of the Mirror Universe's most entertaining villains.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The mirror-universe-saga goes on with an number of new short stories about the characters on the other side who where introduced in part through the series and in part through this saga itself.

The stories are quite mixed - what might be related to taste. The stories about the Kirk-era are quite fascinating and the spotlight-like treatment of some other characters and their surroundings are quite involved. But sometimes a story was more on its own than the others and the narrative thread of the whole went a bit missing.

Decent but uninspired 27. Januar 2009
Von R. Spottiswood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
For twelve stories over such a range of time and Trek series, they end up being remarkably similar. They showcase the violence and treachery of the Mirror Universe, all right, but not much more, and the stories themselves are uninspired. Also, a heck of a lot of established characters get killed off. I realise that part of the appeal of the Mirror Universe is that writers can raise drama with the genuine possibility of character death. By halfway through the book, known character deaths becomes routine. Drama is not found in routine.

The first four stories are sent in the Terran Empire. The first story is told in flashback, but you can't tell which point is the present for 'Trip' Tucker. The second story is an intricate story of betrayal. The third is James Kirk becoming captain of the I.S.S. Enterprise. It is good, but told in a creepily light-hearted manner. After these three good stories, the Vanguard story is basically an action set-piece. It is the kind of story that works better on a screen than in print.

After that, the stories are set in the post-Empire period, with a mix of Alliance and Terran Rebellion stories, with the Memory Omega conspiracy as a frequent sub-plot. Three stories feature the Stargazer crew, some of the Next Generation cast, and some of the Voyager crew, and all are basically about the groups treacherously decimating each other. Keith R.A. DeCandido's story is the mirror for the Battle of Marcan V. Part of the interest in the story is that you don't know who is treacherous or who they intend to betray. The other main part is that the writing is very good and, it has to be said, noticeably above the quality of the rest of the stories.

Peter David's story is what Star Trek: Nemesis would be if mirrored, using the Excalibur setting ... and a comedy. Or at least, I found it impossible to take the story seriously. That is especially a shame as it features one of the largest-scale events in the Mirror Universe.

Jim Johnson's A Terrible Beauty is about Keiko Ishikawa. It is an intricate story of decepetion and treachery and a very subtle style of establishing control over people and events, and one of the better stories. There is a story with the Titan crew that is basically the usual slaughter, plus since it's Chris Bennett, some heavy-handed moralising. The last story is a David Mack special ops story. It's not up to his usual standard.

Overall, these stories are decent, but nothing special.

A Slight Stumble 10. Januar 2009
Von Ryan Peterson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have much enjoyed the Myriad Universes and Mirror Universes collections and have eagerly awaited this installment since it was announced for last year. However, this entry did not strike me fondly as its predecessors. Some of the offers were quite good (ie Homecoming, The Black Flag, Nobunaga), but others didn't strike me quite well (Sacred Chalice, the format of Family Matters.) Overall, it's a good read, but I would recommend reading the rest of the Mirror Universe books before delving into this one.

Mirror Universe - Part Three 3. Februar 2009
Von P. McCoy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Shards and Shadows continues on from Part One. I noticed, however, that some of the stories referenced other stories in Obsidian Alliances. Fortunately, I had the other book and was able to access the previously-referenced stories to get a better handle of the "thread" contained within Shards and Shadows.

The mirror Star Trek universe lives on 10. Februar 2014
Von Charles Ashbacher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
One of my favorite episodes in the Star Trek original series was "Mirror, Mirror" and I consider the comment by the Imperial Spock about considering Kirk's suggestion to change the Empire to be the most ideal cliffhanger moment. Unfortunately, there was no subsequent episode of the original series depicting what the Imperial Spock actually did after his Captain Kirk materialized.
Fortunately, the potential of that storyline has been followed in episodes of subsequent television series as well as in books and other forms of print. This book contains a set of twelve stories of the mirror universe set using many of the characters of the "normal" universe, from the original series through much later times.
The stories are all interesting to the reader cognizant of the various Star Trek incarnations, if you are not familiar with them, being placed within that plotline with little in the setting of the context will make it difficult to understand. This is especially true if you are unfamiliar with the stories "Glass Empires" and "Obsidian Alliances." For example, the historian's note lead-in to the story "A Terrible Beauty" is "The present-day portions of this tale are set in early 2376, two weeks after the events of `Saturn's Children' from `Star Trek Mirror Universe: Obsidian Alliances'."
It is a tribute to the power of the original Star Trek concept that it has spawned so much subsequent creativity in books, short stories and movies. This book contains some good to excellent short stories about the parallel universe, a concept that originated in one single one-hour episode of the original series.

Had a few stories I'd like to see as full length books 1. August 2009
Von Debbie's World of Books - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It's been a long time since I have read Star Trek book beyond the ones I own. I found this book while browsing the shelves at the library and was glad to find it. I've always been a fan of the mirror universe episodes and books. It's interesting to see what my favorite characters would have been like if they took a different path in life or grew up in a different environment. This book is made up of 12 short stories that take place at different times and involve characters from each of the Star Trek series. I will admit I did not read the ones about the classic Star Trek characters. Some of the stories were just ok but Nobunaga by Dave Stern, Bitter Fruit by Susan Wright and A Terrible Beauty by Jim Johnson in particular really left me wanting more. I'm going to have to check to see if any of those were fleshed out into full length books. Nobunaga involves the crew of the series Enterprise and centered around Trip (my favorite of the crew) and imagine an evil empress Hoshi. Bitter Fruit is filled with the Voyager crew. It sounds like Kes may have a darker plan in mind for the world. A Terrible Beauty seems to have a mix of characters from various series. We see Riker, Tuvok and Deanna Troi's father. This was definitely another great addition to the mirror universe books and I can only hope some of them were or will be developed into full length books.
