You don't have to agree with everything they did to think they're pretty damn awesome.
I've never actually seen more than one episode of Deep Space 9
, so I can't agree or disagree with you on the Mirror Universe. The episode I saw was "Trials and Tribble-ations." I've read almost a dozen Deep Space 9
books, though and am very familiar with a lot of the series. Hopefully I can acquire the seasons soon.
To everyone, if a book with Gul Macet as a main character comes out, quickly tell me here. You will have my eternal love and gratitude.
