Did You Know?


The Intendant is the only mirror universe character to appear in all five Deep Space Nine episodes to deal with that universe. See more »


Zek tells Quark that the Alliance will release him only if Quark can secure a ship's cloaking device, claiming that they don't have cloaking technology in the Mirror Universe. This is inconsistent with what is shown in several previous Mirror Universe visits, where we see both Klingon and Cardassian ships with cloaking devices. See more »


[first lines]
Quark: [observing Dax and Bashir in an animated conversation] Have you ever seen anything so disgusting? The way he's undressing her with his eyes... And look at his hands!
Odo: What about his hands?
Quark: His gestures, they're obscene. You should arrest him.
Odo: You're joking.
Quark: He's pitiful. Doesn't he realize she loves me?
Odo: I don't think he does. To be honest, I don't think she does either.
Quark: Thanks for your support.

Quark, Rom, and S&M Ezri take a trip to the mirror universe.
5 March 2019 | by garrison-paulSee all my reviews

Hey there its me, Grand Negas Zek's personal assistant. You'll see me in the back ground standing three feet taller than everyone else but I never say anything.

We're here in the mirror universe looking for money. You know the mirror universe. The place where Vic Fontain isn't a hologram, Brunt is an okay dude, and Kira is a lesbian despot. Where the Federation doesn't exist and Worf and Garek are all buddy buddy and in charge of an alliance. We didn't bring an entourage or anything. I mean honestly, why would The Grand Negas need a contingent of body guards and financial advisors when he has me.

Anyway, things aren't really going that well because instead of making money Zek is getting extorted for a cloaking device. Don't worry though, Quark and Rom are on the case. Gay Kira says we will be out of this cell as soon as they can get here with the cloaking device. Oops, she punched me in the stomach. Double oops, Quark and Rom are in jail with us.

Oh the humanity! Anyway, Garek is about to inject us with something that will boil our internal organs. But he's being out smarted by Quark, Rom, and Zek. Honestly, its a thing of beauty. Oh neat, Rom sabotaged the power grid while installing the cloak. And look, S&M Ezri is here to save us. And nice guy Brunt is dead. How about that. Not only are we going to escape but we've also changed the balance of power in this universe.

This episodes wraps up the mirror universe story line on a mostly happy note. Its too silly to take seriously, but I don't hate it.
