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 Smiley. Jennifer has kidnapped Jake so the captain can be forced to help the rebels. Smiley explains that an alliance fleet led by the regent 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 look-a-like. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

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. Although this is the classic "47" reference of Star Trek fame, it is still a break from continuity. See more »


Jennifer Sisko: By the way, you have done a good job with him. Jake, I mean.
Captain Sisko: Well, you're not making that job any easier.
Jennifer Sisko: Oh, he'll get over me.
Captain Sisko: Maybe.
Jennifer Sisko: [gloomily] I wish I could say the same.
[Sisko looks at her surprised]
Jennifer Sisko: Is that really a surprise? Think about it. My Ben Sisko is dead. I look at Jake... and all I see... is the son that I'll never have. Maybe bringing him here wasn't such a good idea after all.

Another adventure in the Mirror Universe
8 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Jake returns to his quarters he is shocked to find his mother there; it turns out to be the Jennifer Sisko from the mirror universe. While his father is off at a meeting she takes him back to the mirror universe in order to get his father to follow and help with work on their Defiant which they built after stealing the blue prints from DS9. Once the Captain is there they only have a few days to get the Defiant working as the Alliance, led by Regent Worf, has dispatched several ships to retake the station from the rebels. While his father is busy Jake visits his friend Nog but soon learns that the people in the mirror universe are quite different to those he knows back home.

As with the other mirror universe episodes it is fun to see the regular characters acting in a very different way, it is clear that the cast are having fun in their slightly over the top roles. It seems that every time somebody visits the mirror universe the counterpart of a major character will die and this episode is no exception.
