Summary Edit

Background information Edit

  • On connecting the story in the miniseries with the history of the mirror universe established in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, J.K. Woodward commented that the creative team "are tying this story with the DS9 stories, to smooth over the continuity and tie it all together". [1] Similarly, Scott Tipton noted that: "We do play off of the description of the state of the Terran Empire from the DS9 episodes, and explain that all may not have been as people out in deep space believed", whilst David Tipton added that the story is "placed in the context of what we learned about what happened to the Mirror Universe from the Deep Space Nine episodes… when DS9 took on the Mirror Universe, they built up a unique storyline that supported multiple episodes". [2]
  • The series was previewed by a Free Comic Book Day issue. [3]
  • A special one-shot issue, "Origin of Data", was released by LootCrate in its September subscribers box. [4]
  • Characters from the miniseries were added to the mobile game Star Trek Timelines in an event in December 2017. [5]
  • A follow-up miniseries, Star Trek: The Next Generation - Through the Mirror, solicited for weekly release in May 2018, was announced in February 2018 [6].
