Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

While I like the MU, I would prefer to see something totally new for the next 'anniversary' film. Let's get back to the 'explore strange new worlds' idea for this one, please. Nibiru was a great, great addition to the last film.

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

This is probably even worse of an idea than the Borg. As it was, the writers already felt beholden to fans to do Khan, and that turned out somewhat forced. I think they should do something new or something that's just more obscure that they can make fresh. They shouldn't be picking gimmicks that don't make sense.

You mean like hiding the Enterprise under water when all they had to do to stay out of sight was remain in orbit?

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

Unfortunately, they probably couldn't do a film that took place ONLY in the mirror universe. They'd have to work in some kind of crossover with the regular one. But even then, I guess they could make it work.

I don't see any way the Borg could be shoehorned into the next film, because even the Abramsverse Federation can't yet get all the way out to the Delta Quadrant. But there is always the opportunity to do a MU story.

I've got enough of a headache hearing about how the AltUniverse is not to fans' liking. Imagine the uproar over the Alternate AltUniverse!

Ugh...

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

Honestly, I wouldn't have minded a mirror universe story for Star Trek into Darkness, but now is not the right time. I do hope the mirror universe gets on the big screen one day, but the guys running the reboot need to get people back on board and pumped for the next movie after using Khan fell flat.

Four-hundred and fifty million dollars and nine out of ten people liking it doesn't qualify as "fell flat".

At the very least, we have very different definitions of "fell flat".

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

Kicking the crap out of the competition in BD sales qualifies as "fell flat"?

Highest grossing Trek movie worldwide, highest overseas BO for a Trek movie ever is considered "fell flat"?

Who knew...

I agree with the consensus, too soon/too difficult to pull off.

I could see the idea someday making it into a novel, whenever they lift the ban on them in the nuverse.

Why not? Should take about thirty minutes at Abramsverse speeds.

Re: The Mirror Universe in Star Trek XIII?

Mirror, Mirror: no. By extension, MU=no.

If they must rehash for the next movie, I'm still in the Doomsday Machine or Balance of Terror camp.

But to stay on topic, sort of, I agree that Mirror, Mirror doesn't a feature film make, and that adding MU to AU just feels too nerdy for general audiences to swallow, never mind giving fans one more thing to groan about.

I really liked the ENT In a Mirror, Darkly ep. I would love to see a CGI big screen appropriate version of TOS Defiant or even Enterprise pop out of 'whatever'. Yes, this is utter fanwank, and I don't think it's the forward motion the franchise needs.

Might as well hope for the 1701-A to pop with Shatner on screen for a five second cameo, if only to deliver his famous "Good morning, Captian" line to Pine. ROTFL.

I could dig a MU movie, as long as they gave equal time to the good guys.
