Re: Why was there no Mirror Universe VOY episode?

going by the timeline, the alpha quadrant was at war during the time Janeway would have taken command of Voyager...

it's doubtful the Terran Empire could have created a ship like Voyager when they had the Klingon / Cardassian alliance to contend with... there isn't a huge amount of info about that time period in the mirror universe, but with what we saw on Deep Space Nine in the mirror episodes, i find it unlikely that bothering with science / research vessels would have been anywhere near the top of the Terran Empire's concerns lol

It's likely that Janeway or most of her crew were dead anyway in the Klingon / Cardassian alliance war... if not, they were too busy fighting the alliance for their lives to make it to the badlands to be swept away by the caretaker...

I guess there was no Mirror Voyager because no idea came up, or perhaps did but was not worthy enough to make an episode.

Re: Why was there no Mirror Universe VOY episode?

Well if we go buy what we witnessed of the MU in DSN, there was no Terran Empire, hence no ISS Voyager. Therfore given VOY's predicament it would have been hard to do a convincining MU story.

Yeah, we got a perfectly good "Mirror" Voyager with "Living Witness".

"Anything that can happen, does happen, in alternate quantum realities" - Data, "Parallels"

The novels gave us the excellent Dark Mirror, where we visit an Enterprise-D from a mirror universe where the Empire never fell. A similar story could have been told in Voyager. Janeway vs. a "Living Witness" -style Mirror!Janeway would have been lots and lots of fun.

There's this, assuming there was ever any truth to them as possible ideas for episodes.

http://www.hack-man.com/StarTrek/TREKFAQS/voy.txt

"5. “Two Way Mirror” - a complex synchronic mirror universe show that will start in a Voyager show and end with the following week in DS9 show or the other way around."

A shame they never did one, as it would have been glorious. Imagine Janeway and 7of9 as mirror univese characters! Niice.

Janeway was always a better villain then a hero anyway.

As has already been said, Living Witness is essentially a Mirror Universe episode in everything but name - just using a different device to portray well-known characters in a vastly different light.

DS9 had already made the MU a cartoonish parody of itself, we just wouldn't be able to take it seriously if they did a MU episode on Voyager.
