    Apparently in Trek you can hop timelines or go back/forward in history but not both. You do both and it goes all Stargate SG1 (DSC: "Terra Firma")

    Well in Discovery, sure but in other series, who knows. The TOS Defiant made it back in time to Mirror fine enough. Spock and Nero made it back in time to Kelvin fine enough. Time/universe travel works a certain way until the next script writer says it doesn't.

    There are more things in Star Trek and in its writers' minds than are dreamt in fandom philosophy.

    The entire crew went crazy and died, so I'm not sure that holds up.

    Would the offspring of a Prime Time Line Kirk and Mirror Universe Yeoman Rand develop some kind of super natural powers that would allow the offspring to travel between both Universes?

    Maybe we should start small and experiment on a Tribble from the Prime Time Line and a Tribble from the Mirror Universe.

    Speaking of Tribbles, would Tribbles be a sentient, humanoid hunting and warp capable species in a Mirror Universe?

    I think if we used Khan's blood... It can cure anything, even death, even dead tribbles are revived...

    I mean you take Kahn's blood from both universes you mix them and you can cure people who've been burned to a crisp...

    BTW, Mirror Kahn is a very nice guy, he's started a foundation to help people who've got a Ceti Alpha V earwig put into their brains... by the other Kahn... Very nice guy!!!

    Yeah, I get it. Why have a device to test something that's proven to always be true? It's kooky. But maybe they know this is always true in their universe, and not in alternate universes, and they know that on spaceships sometimes people accidentally swap universes, and it's good to know what's going on in that kind of emergency.

    But, they were passing back and forth between the interphase so perhaps it took them across the time/space continuum a couple of times, causing the madness and death.
    That would only happen Q and Mirror Q.

    Honestly, there isn't a huge difference between the Mirror and Prime Counterparts so superpowers are unlikely to develop.

    Not a huge difference!? The very construct of the Mirror is completely different than the Prime. There would have to be some type of power achieved by a baby born of two different dimensions.


    Has anyone ever really given the Tribbles evolving into a humanoid species a chance in a Mirror Universe?

    What would the Tribble look like? What would their ships look like? With the Terran Mirror Universe being very hostile the Tribbles would also be very hostile and evolved which would be a mirror to their Prime counterpart.

    I feel like I'm looking at a much different Mirror.

    You know the first mirror story I've ever read (not counting Lewis Carroll) was in a cartoon named "Mandrake The Magician"... There was a conspiracy from the people behind the mirror (literally) and Mandrake (along with his companions) exchanged places with his counterpart on the other side of the mirror (It was drawn in the 1920s!!) and You know what the story seemed a lot like the one on TOS!!! I mean the good people were all evil and vice versa. funny detail, street thugs tried to help old people to cross the street who insulted them in return (that detail was quite funny to watch!)...So the idea of a mirror universe is actually quite old!!!

    Indeed, yes, it is not a new idea.

    Is it possible to have a Mirror Universe inside of a Mirror Universe?

    Yes, everything is possible where the multiverse is involved.

    But what would a double mirror universe look like? How would it function, separately of the first mirror and then Primo line intersecting at one point?

    How would a wormhole or Mycelial Network function in such a perfectly constructed, obtuse environment?

    However the plot requires it to.

    Interesting, hundreds of mirror realities, all stemming from a single time line, but each with their own outlook based on how they are facing in each mirror, and yet still under the control of the original image.

    The reflected image, for all intents and purposes, a living being that is not alive at alive.

    A gouge on the mirror will simply see the Mirror image occupy the gouge, creating a very, very small image of the original. But a scratch on the original will not harm the reflected image at all.
