Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

No, please not!! In a TV show, with over a hundred episodes, the odd time travel, comedy or mirror universe episodes are okay and can provide some interesting variation. But since the "Abramsverse" entirely consists of (then) three movies, don´t devote one of them (an entire third of the re-imagined universe!) to a mirror universe story. I´d much rather have some more character development and some space exploration.

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

In the Mirror Universe, the alternate Quark suggested the idea of an escape route into the prime universe. (Similar to escaped slaves making their way north across the United States). Perhaps this would be feasible with an alternate Mirror Universe. Or perhaps warships from the collapsing Terran Empire could escape through the wormhole into the prime universe.

There has never been a good mirror universe story.

Never.

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

The only bad MU stories were the ones on DS9 that aren't called "Crossover."

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

With there build up on the Klingons as a threat that hasn't surfaced yet, I would think the next film would do a version of Errand of Mercy. With Kor as the main Klingon.

However the Mirror Universe has some oddly appealing possibilities. Instead of a NuMirror Universe, what if they blundered into the Prime Mirror Universe (with of course the Nuactors playing the mirror roles for consistency.) Image the crew of the two universes attempting to stumble through their opposites ships. The Mirror Kirk finding his counterpart's ship to be huge and took bright, while the NuKirk finds a smaller ship that is more colorful and blocky on the inside.

The NuTrek Enterprise being their version of the Constitution-class while the Mirror Universe is still using their own Defiant-class starships based on the Prime Universes Constitution-class.

As log as they put Chekov in the agony booth, I'm good with it.

A 2 hour film might be little time to explore the mirror universe.

The comics have already done the Klingon war storyline, and have even featured Kor, who got killed. War with the Klingons won't be done in the movies, Kor won't be in the movies.

No, but Orci signs off on everything the comics do to make sure they don't do stories planned for the movies. If something is done in the comics, it's because there are no plans to do that story in the movies. Otherwise, Orci would have told IDW no and made them do another story.

Nah, I think I'd prefer a nuMU. I'd love to see what that universe's version of the Abramsprise would look like.
