Quark Travels Into the Mirror Universe

Story: The Emperor's New Cloak
Written By: Ira Steven Behr & Hans Beimler
Series: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Year: 1999

It is the last mirror universe episode…and it is kind of clear the joke is old now. Basically Grand Nagus Zek went to the mirror universe to make some money, and the alliance kidnapped him and he needs Quark and Rom to bring him a cloaking device to save his life. How and why the Nagus got over there is dumb and ridiculous. Then you get over there and its just endless lesbian innuendo about mirror Ezri. I’ll admit she is definitely sexy in the mirror universe, but she still has trouble acting.
The episode is just too goofy for it to work as a solid finale to the mirror saga. I like that the resistance against the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance finally won and brought closure in a way to that world, but it was almost like an afterthought.

Not as bad as some claim, but it is definitely not that great either.
