Berman said that if they hadn't already used the idea for YE, they'd have made the same story except with the Ent-A instead for "Generations".

That might have been interesting. Better than that silly nexus bit.

I think "Yesterday's Enterprise" was fine as-is.

This was the getting-Tasha's-death-right episode, not a there-but-for-the-grace-of-Kahless goes Worf episode.

Also, I get really sick of what I call small universe syndrome in Star Trek.

A fantasy remake of the episode to me, would feature replacing the stupid scaled up BOPs with a trio of Vor'cha or Negh'var designs. Something that, you know, would seriously choreograph the E-D being in trouble. (And it's not as if there's anything that tells us what a K'Vort class battlecruiser is anyway. The same footage was later used for B'Rel class ships in "Rascals")

When the US Navy wanted a larger fighter/attack aircraft, instead of producing a an entirely new design MD/Boeing simply up-scaled the F/A-18 to produce the Super Hornet.

Personally I like that the BOP design is use in a various sizes, from light attack up through large cruiser.

Although they should have done something about the windows.

The Super Hornet isn't a simple up-scale, they did have to redesign a fair amount of it to accommodate the increased payload etc. And the difference between the F/A-18E/F and the F/A-18C/D is on the order of about 130% in terms of overall volume, rather than the ridiculous 2700% between the BOP types.

I would have liked to have seen an ENT: Through a mirror, darkly style new teaser credits.

I wouldn't have hated if Worf had shown up. Those kind of coincidences can feel like fate, etc. But I think the episode worked great exactly as it was. I don't find it that surprising that most of the crew were still on the Enterprise, those people followed the same career paths as their counterparts. A little bit of suspension of disbelief is necessary sometimes.
I wonder what happend to Troi, and all the other Trek characters from DS9 and Voyager in the altered time line?
This makes me think I'd have loved to have seen the Mirror Universe used on TNG. There is a novel Dark Mirror I think, that explores that, and characters from all the Trek shows are in the Dark Passions novels.

The big ones are 27x the size of the other ones? lol

The ones in the Defector were ridiculously huge... they had the same wingspan of a Romulan warbird. Wouldn't say 27x though... unless maybe you're measuring them against the BoPs in DS9 that looked small enough to be one man fighters.

Small universe syndrome was pushed almost to its absolute limits in DS9's mirror universe episodes!

They had an Ezri who happened to be there just at the right time, in the season seven timeline (she may not have been joined though). Not to mention even freaking Vic Fontaine was inexplicably there in the MU How that happens, I have no idea? Maybe he was an android made to resemble the crooner of the 20th century, for some reason.
