Ahh…the mirror universe. This season has really tried to be more like TOS, and revisiting the mirror universe seems like a solid plan for sure. Is it the best mirror story ever? No, nothing will ever really top “Mirror, Mirror”. But it is good fun at times, seeing all our characters grimacing and talking in gruff voices. The costumes are pretty good, and some of our sinister heroes are well performed. It is unique in that NO proper universe characters crossover. But MAN the TOS references are a plenty in this two-parter.
Basically the Terran Empire has discovered a ship, USS Defiant, lost in the TOS episode “The Tholian Web”. We get to see a Tholian for the first time since that TOS episode, despite many references in the various programs over the years, it was nice to finally see them, and the CGI for it looks FANTASTIC.
