One hundred years ago, four crewmembers of the "U.S.S EnterpriseTM crossed the dimensional barrier and found a mirror image of their own universe, populated by nightmare duplicates of their shipmates. Barely able to escape with their lives, they returned, thankful that the accident which had brought them there could not be duplicated, or so they thought. But now the scientists of that empire have found a doorway into our universe. Their plan is to destroy from within, to replace a Federation Starships with one of their own.

I have read this novel several times and I have enjoyed it every time. It captures the uncanny valley feeling of the Mirror Universe in a believable way and the characters react to their mirror universe counterparts in believable ways. Overall I think this is my favorite portrayal of the Mirror Universe event including canon appearances in the various series.

The Good:
  • Characterization is well done
  • Plot pacing is very good with the stakes becoming more urgent as the characters learn what brought them to the Mirror Universe
  • The author takes advantage of the inherent creepiness of a universe that is both very similar to our own and yest very different
  • The Mirror Universe characters behave in believable ways instead of acting as caricatures of the main cast
  • In my opinion the technobabble was kept plausible and didn't come of like a random selection of technical terms
  • The dolphin-like character had some really good interactions with Geordi LaForge

The Bad:
  • The dolphin-like character feels somewhat out of place and I'm honestly not sure why. Might be because he is part of the beginning and plays almost no part until the very end

The uniquenessof Diane Duane's take on the characters from the TNG franchise is not as great as with her TOS stories but this story plays on another interesting episode from the original series; the Imperial Earth altHist universe.

The USS Enterprise is dragged into the universe belonging to the ISS Enterprise where they find that their alternatives have come up with a deadly plan to take over the USS Enterprise and use her as a cuckoo in order to act as the spearhead of an invasion of a whole new universe.

I loved the way the characteristics of the bridge crew had been twisted, not beyond recognitiion, but just out of our version of true and the way it followed on in a fairly logical way from from the TOS episode. This alternative universe has become a favourite with the Star Trek producers as well, with DSN and Enterprise having stories set in the same background as well. ( )

Another novel I ganked out of that lot from last March. I already owned it in paperback, but it never hurts to read a book twice-- especially when it's by Diane Duane. This might just be my favorite prose rendition of Star Trek's "mirror universe". Duane's worldbuilding skills make the realm actually seem like a real, (dis)functioning place, not just a vehicle for lesbian kissing, goatees, gratuitous violence, and comedy: most of the mirror counterparts of the tNG crew are twisted, genuinely frightening individuals, all the more so for how similar they are to our heroes in some ways, especially the counterparts of Picard and Troi. Plus Duane throws in opera, (seemingly) plausible science, and a dolphin scientist straight out of Deep Wizardry. What's not to like? The over-technobabbly conclusion, but that's about it. It's a shame that the TV show strayed so far from the original mirror universe premise, because I much prefer the approach taken here and in "Mirror, Mirror".
