Storyline

Chief O'Brien, in common clothes, suddenly pokes a phaser in Sisko's back and disappears with the captain through the transporter. It soon becomes clear he has been taken to the mirror universe, where Kira and Bashir got stuck earlier. O'Brien tells the Terrans started a rebellion against the Klingon-Cardassian-Bajoran alliance. The mirror Sisko was their leader, but he recently died. Sisko tells O'Brien he is not interested in replacing him, but his interest is piqued when O'Brien mentions the words Jennifer Sisko. In the mirror universe Sisko's wife is still alive and working for the alliance. She's constructing a sensor array that will allow them to locate the rebels in the Badlands. Sisko agrees to complete mirror Sisko's last mission: convince Jennifer to switch sides. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

[first lines]
Odo: [to Sisko] I found 27 voles in his storeroom.
Quark: Vole infestations are not uncommon on this station. If you don't believe me, ask Chief O'Brien.
Odo: When I came in, he and Morn were painting numbers on the voles' backs.
Quark: We were just... counting them, to see how many we'd caught.
Commander Sisko: You were getting ready to stage a vole fight.
Quark: A vole fight? I'm appalled. Do you really think that was what Morn was up to?
Commander Sisko: Constable, I want the voles confiscated and removed from the station.
Quark: You can't confiscate...

Decent but perhaps they should stop these sorts of episodes.
24 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Through the Looking Glass" is the second follow-up episode that "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" has done which was inspired by "Mirror, Mirror" from the original "Star Trek" series. I adored "Mirror, Mirror" and didn't mind one follow-up--but by the time this third episode debuted, it all started to feel a bit overdone. Unfortunately, more of these "Mirror, Mirror" inspired shows would follow. Imitation is not necessarily a good thing.

When the show begins, Mile O'Brien kidnaps the Commander. Soon, Sisko realized this isn't the REAL O'Brien but one from the parallel world who plans on using him in the new Terran rebellion. It seems that Sisko's counterpart in the parallel universe has died--and Sisko is needed to finish his double's job. Why? I have no idea.

Apart from the lack of originality, the show also suffers from an improbably resolution that comes too easily. Not great but at least it's fun watching the hornier and deadlier Major Kira.
