Kira and Bashir are returning from the opening of a hospital on New Bajor in the Gamma Quadrant. Just as they're to enter the wormhole, a sudden problem arises. Kira is able to solve it, but when they arrive in the Alpha Quadrant things seems to have changed. Deep Space Nine is once again orbiting Bajor and the runabout is entered by Klingons, who excuse themselves when they see Kira. It soon becomes clear the two have arrived in alternate universe. Klingons, Cardassians and Bajorans have formed an alliance against Earth and humans are forced to do slave labor on Deep Space Nine. The station is led by intendant Kira. She speaks of a person named 'Kirk,' who traveled from the other side earlier. While Bashir is sent away to ore processing, intendant Kira seems to really like her other self. Written by

Did You Know?
The teaser scene in which the two Klingon soldiers board the runabout is intentionally shot from extreme angles, which director David Livingston
compared to essentially shooting up the actors' noses. He did this to emphasise how different things were in the mirror universe. See more
Benjamin Sisko exists in the Mirror Universe. Given what is revealed in the first story arc of Season 7 about the regular Sisko's parentage, this is highly improbable. See more
The Benjamin Sisko I know would never sell his soul, and allow himself to become part of this tyranny against his own people.
Terrans don't have souls. We don't believe in them.
