Re: Mirror Universe Chronology Question

I've just read about the Shatner/Reeves Stevens pitch for a season 4 Enterprise/TOS MU TV crossover featuring MU Kirk and the creation of the MU.

If the Reeves Stevens are not interested or too busy would someone else be interested in doing it ? I'd certainly like to read it.

As it's not my story idea and is already established whose idea it is, I think we're OK discussing it here...

Re: Mirror Universe Chronology Question

Actually ended up reading "Black Flag" during Sorrows of Empire and I'm glad that I did, because it makes the Vanguard story arc in Sorrows a little more complete. As well, Swallow appeared to be aping the style/pacing of Mack's story, and it fit fairly well in. Clearly a little different, but nicely done. About 50% through Sorrows according to my Kindle and I'm loving it. Might be my favorite Spock-centirc tale.

^Definitely one of the best Spock stories, and IMO one of the best Trek stories ever told.

Definitely. Gave a whole new layer of amazingness to the MU.

Yeah, it turned what was always kind of a fun, jokey thing, into a serious quality story.

Re: Mirror Universe Chronology Question

While I'm unsure of later continuity glitches in it, it really seems like the logical time period for "Freedom Angst" is 2366, as a knowing nod to Wolf 359. It also give more breathing room for Sisko to work for Kira, as opposed to the just over one year it would be to preserve a 2369 placement. Still plugging along, watching Through the Looking Glass at the moment!

^"Freedom Angst" would have to be in 2366 to reconcile with Sisko and Jennifer being five years divorced in "Through the Looking Glass." I wonder if the 2369 reference in the historian's note was simply a typo.

Re: Mirror Universe Chronology Question

As I said in the "What are you reading?" thread, I'm up through the NF stories in my MU Read through. Encountered my only continuity hiccup so far, Selar appears in Worst of Both Worlds and then again in Homecoming, as the first is set earlier they are irreconcilable. Certainly it can be read that they are two different Vulcans with the same name, but that's silly! Not a huge problem just something that cropped up.

About to start Saturn's Children tonight. The Historian's note suggests it takes place between "New Cloak" and "WYLB," would I be safe in inserting it into my DS9 read order as an early part of "Season 8?" I only ask because I have a friend who hasn't done the DS9-R yet, and but he owns the MU books and was asking me how to tackle the two DS9 tales in them. (As well, I'm anal and have a spread sheet of all the novels and where I place them!)

Re: Mirror Universe Chronology Question

The events in the MU don't really come into play until after Unity, so I would say wait until then to read it.
