Overview

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. Their victims are the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D, who now find themselves engaged in combat against the most savage enemies they have ever encountered, themselves.

Editorial Reviews

John Mort
A gripping "Star Trek: The Next Generation" tale hearkening back to the original TV series episode, "Mirror, Mirror." That was the one in which Captain Kirk encountered his brutal alter ego in a parallel universe, a place where only the alternative Spock showed any humanity. Here, the alternative "Enterprise" draws Captain Picard's vessel into its alternative space, bent on capturing it and staffing it with a look-alike crew--all to spearhead an invasion of the Federation. Deanna Troi, Geordi La Forge, and Captain Picard outwit the scheme by transporting aboard the other "Enterprise" and turning its technology against the would-be conquerors. Here's where Duane's novel turns clever, with Picard assuming his doppelgSnger's role and discovering--among other things--just how malicious and threatening a Betazed can be and how bitter the alternative Dr. Crusher can be in the role of the "captain's woman." There's also a particularly nasty alternative Riker and a noble alternative Worf. The true Picard maneuvers his ship back into Federation space, but the alien follows; there's some manipulation of hyperstrings (with the help of a spacegoing dolphin) to send the bad "Enterprise" back where it belongs. Another capable entry in this series that always seems to be better than one would expect.
Kirkus Reviews
A Star Trek: The Next Generation yarn from the fantasist (The Door into Sunset, p. 28) and veteran of numerous Star Trek hardcovers. Duane's first stab at a Next Generation tale is based on an old Star Trek episode, "Mirror, Mirror," in which Kirk, Scott, and Uhura were propelled into a parallel universe where the Federation was a ruthless empire; their personal counterparts, with whom they had exchanged places, turned out to be brutal barbarian warriors bent on conquest and loot. This time, the Enterprise—with Hwiii, a dolphin scientist, aboard—is switched into the same universe visited by Kirk, and finds itself confronted by a counterpart Enterprise, bristling with weapons, of superior speed and power. Now Captain Jean-Luc Picard must defeat his evil twin and prevent the invasion planned by the other, malign, Federation. Anyone who saw the original episode knows more or less what to expect. Given the large first print run, the publishers obviously expect demand to be brisk—but, workmanlike, unsurprising, and mediocre as it is, will it play in Peoria? (First printing of 200,000)

    THEME STARTER

    In my veiw this book started the whole other universe theme and all where Star Fleet is well evil.<BR/> It is a great new read for new coming Sci-Fi readers because it shows first hand what us Trekies are all about while giving tons of actions.<BR/> You should KNOW that this book is to become a classic Trek book and that the evil bersions can get out of hands and since it was a early one before the the other universe Star Fleet thing got out of hand, I recommend a PG 13....<BR/><BR/>Oh yeah if your planning to watch the Star Trek: Enterprise epicode, tittled "In a Mirror Darkly" which lasts 2 and a HALF hours for the FULL version, I recomend you veiw it first before allowing your kids to watch it to decide. But don't worry that this book takes the Terran Empire to that level in this book...

    A Book Worthy of Star Trek

    An excellent Star Trek book that deals with the Mirror Universe. It is easy to read and understand even if you don't know much about The Next Generation.
