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 the late 1980s, the pop band Information Society sampled Kirk's line, "It is useless to resist us," at the very beginning of their song "Walking Away", as well as "In every revolution, there's one man with a vision," on "Over the Sea". See more »

Goofs

When the landing party is in the middle of the cross-universe transfer, the USS/ISS Enterprise is seen in orbit going in opposite directions (USS Enterprise going counterclockwise [when viewed from above]; ISS Enterprise going clockwise). However, through the rest of this episode, the ISS Enterprise is going counterclockwise. See more »

Quotes

Captain James T. Kirk: What is this, Mr. Sulu?
Mirror Sulu: Mr. Spock has orders to kill you, Captain. He will succeed... apparently. You will also appear to have killed him after a fierce battle. Regrettable, but it will leave me in command.

Star Trek

Mirror, Mirror

A cultural hub and by far one of the most loved and respected tale, Star Trek is created by Gene Roddenberry who wrote this brilliant concept, ahead of its time and is probably why it still doesn't fail to entertain us after these many years. It was written "for the future" in many aspects as it even though is smarter, wiser and powerful it still seeks for emotion and the force that binds it all. The relation between Spock and Kirk; despite of its premise, is the most human thing in this majestic tale where the adventures are endless. Encountering this original series, at this stage makes the execution look petty and a bit loose (the small technical aspects can be negotiated) but the writing is smart, gripping and hence completely overpowers it.

Unlike any other hit series, it only has 3 seasons so luckily it means that they will be covering up all their ideas within it until they are satisfied. As it often happens, the first season is always promising and has potential (or else it won't lift up for further more seasons) in it and is utilized with fine detailed work like focusing on different new breeds and characters bonding through this journey.

Whenever a crisis is created due to technical errors things do spice up especially if it results into two friends against each other. A nice concept and is gripping too with some close encounter calls and new characters with their sub plot this one sails off swiftly.
