The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

In an interview for STID, Zachary Quinto mentioned growing a goatee for the next Trek movie. I'm not sure if he was kidding or not, but I think it's highly likely that the next movie will be based off of "Mirror, Mirror." Do you think this would be a good way to go or not? Personally, I'm really excited at the prospect...

Um...kinda too fanwanky for me. Very difficult to pull off and I never really got into it myself.

EDIT: Oops, voted the wrong one.

Tried in the comics, wasn't too interesting.

As long as it involves the Mirror Universe Borg, whose mission is to go around promoting individuality for every being in the universe.

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

^ Actually, apart from some minor differences (King instead of Queen, diamonds instead of cubes), the Borg of the MU are pretty much the same as they are in the RU.

Which is odd, really, since in the MU the Destiny trilogy obviously could not have happened anywhere near like it did in the RU...

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

I don't really have a feeling one way or the other.

But if done right, it could be really fun. But it would be really hard to do right.

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

If it builds on Enterprise's "In a Mirror Darkly," it could be good. But I remember a Mirror Universe storyline from DC comics circa 1985 or so, that took place chronologically between TSFS and TVH. It kinda sucked.

Personally, before Star Trek ID, I remember the rumors that Cumberbatch was actually playing Gary Mitchell, and was actually kind of excited about it. Would be cool if they actually go through with that.

While it could be cool if done right, I think the new universe is bizarro enough without adding its own nutty evil sub-universe.

And since it was done in the comics, that rules out any possibility of it being done in a movie. After all, Orci supervises the comics to make sure they don't do material planned for the movies.

But yeah, the comic story wasn't that great. But then, it is basically just a copy of Enterprise's MU two-parter. Not to mention, all the ridiculous art errors...

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

The comic went to great lengths to point out the infinite number of universes out there, and their mirror story had no connection to the usual nuTrek one. I think they did it that way on purpose, just in case they wanted to introduce a movie mirrorverse later (not that I think they should)

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

The MU was the best thing that ever happened to Star Trek, and could be the best thing that ever happened to the new timeline.

I say they should do it just for the hell of it.

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

I love the MU episodes, maybe even more than the next guy, but I don't see how a Mirror universe story could ever be expected to carry an entire movie. Especially so early in the reboot. As of this point, we still only have about 3-4 hours of story about how the NuTrek universe even works itself - how does it make any sense to try to undercut that by already introducing another alternate universe?

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

NOOOOOOOoooo fuck off MU and don't come back!!!!

Though.. Evil NuSpock would be HOT. Though I only loved Mirror Mirror, others had camp moments but were mostly godawful.

Since we are already AU I think AU MU would be a bit too much. Like, just tell a good story without it all being a take on something we already had.

Same here.

I love the MU, and its narrative potential, but right now it would make no sense in the reboot.
