Episode cast overview:
Dennis Madalone ...


Benjamin and Jake Sisko are surprised by the sudden arrival of Jennifer Sisko from the Mirror Universe. She claims to be here to visit Benjamin and brings good news: the rebels have captured Terok Nor from the Alliance. But when the captain returns from a long meeting, he finds the two are gone. Jennifer has taken Jake to the Mirror Universe. Benjamin decides to bring him back, but after arriving finds himself arrested by O'Brien. Jennifer has kidnapped Jake so the captain can be forced to help the rebels. O'Brien explains that an Alliance fleet led by Regent Worf is on their way to the station. The only possible help comes from a copy of the Defiant. Sisko needs to sort out its startup problems and is forced to agree. Meanwhile, Jake has no trouble whatsoever with the situation and begins to build a relationship with his mother lookalike. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Before attempting to beam to the mirror universe, Major Kira gets some phasers from Weapons Locker 47 in Ops. In the previous episode "Hard Time", Chief O'Brien almost kills himself with a phaser from Weapons Locker 47, which is in the cargo hold. As this is a parallel universe, and many things are the same, there is no reason why both stations should have the same numbering systems for everything. This is the classic "47" reference of Star Trek fame. See more »

Another "Mirror, Mirror" inspired episode?!
3 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the episode begins, Captain Sisko is having a visit with his dead wife, Jennifer. Huh? Well, it seems that the very much alive Jennifer from the parallel world has come for a visit. However, the real purpose is not so pleasant and she soon ends up kidnapping Jake. Why? What's really happening?!

While I loved "Mirror, Mirror" on the original series as well as enjoyed seeing "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" do a follow-up episode with this same parallel evil world, this show is clearly an example of going to the well once too often. This is because it's the fourth such episode and the idea has become a bit tiresome due to overuse. Now am I saying it's a bad episode? Not really...but it certainly lacks originality and apart from watching Major Kira kill folks for kicks, there isn't a lot that stands out from this episode. Watchable but just too familiar.
