Storyline

Beamed up during an ion storm, which causes a transporter malfunction, the landing party of Kirk, McCoy, Scotty and Uhura find themselves in a mirror universe aboard a parallel Enterprise run by ruthless barbarians. The ion storm also caused their malicious counterparts to beam to the real starship. Kirk and the others must find a way home before they are discovered and exposed by their parallel crew members, who use treachery, back-stabbing and seduction to get what they want.

Trivia

In Jerome Bixby's original outline, the Mirror Universe Federation was not evil, but simply backwards in terms of some technology, notably phaser weapons. Initially, mirror Kirk was married to a nurse on board the parallel Enterprise, and mirror Spock was more Vulcan in temperament. In addition, McCoy's counterpart, and not that of Spock, was to be bearded. See more »

Nice abs
19 November 2006 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

It's an interesting episode and concept, but the Vulcan logical side of me says if there is a parallel universe with evil counterparts to the whole crew, and some of the evil crew dies in the evil universe, then shouldn't the good counterparts die in the good universe? On that same line, shouldn't the evil Spock in the evil parallel universe be an emotional basket case compared to the logical good Spock in the normal universe? yet he is logical in both universes.

Still, Uhura looks pretty good in her cut off blouse for the 1960's standards of feminine pulchritude. She has amazingly good abs for being one of those softer, chubbier Marilyn Monroe body types of the ideal woman.
