Mirror? Ironically (and that's likley what they were going for) the crew of the Cosmic Spider(yes that's what I'm calling it here) somewhat very loosely start out as a darker, broken Mirror reflection, anti-TNG crew: - Riker; amicable, sociable, pride of Starfleet / Rios; brooding, cynical, loner, shunned by Sartfleet. - Geordi ; kind, hard working, intuitive, focused (blind yet sees on a different spectrum) / Raffi Irritable, obsessed to a disabilitating degree, strung out, consumed by conspiracy (ironically only one that sees truth) - Dr.Crusher; unwavering hippocratic oath, do no harm, swear to indiscriminately protect/heal all life / Dr. Jurati; swayed to straight murder you in your hospital bed - Worf; boastful, loud, overdramitic, impulsive protector/ Elnor; withdrawn, tempered, unnoticed, stealthy protector. - Data; Synth-A.I. wants to become human / Soji(et all) ; Synth-A.I.s might want to wipe out humanity. Unless; .... as we saw, in Picard's orbit, they all (character arc) turn that around, or turn the same into positives (being the narrative point of putting him with this somewhat gone awry crew).
