Parallel universe episodes Edit

This is a new article that has spawned from the Time travel episodes article and the Alternate timeline episodes article. Basically you put stuff in this one that shows a different universe or reality like the Mirror universe or fluidic space. Stuff like alternate timelines (whether changed back or not) belongs in the Alternate timeline episodes article.--Cyorxamp 23:03, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Where exactly is the cut-off point between parallel universe an alternate timeline? After all, even the mirror universe is supposed to be one that branches off of the main ST universe at a specific point. --Jayunderscorezero 00:08, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

The existing article on Parallel universes already explicitly explains the difference between an alternate timeline and a paraellel universe. Personally (in reality) I think time/dimensions are one and the same, but in the Star Trek world these things are seperate.--Cyorxamp 00:14, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for that, that article does explain it pretty succinctly. --Jayunderscorezero 02:32, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
From comparing episodes "Parallels" and "Yesterday's Enterprise" you almost get a sense that it is the same thing, but parallel universe is basically just a region in the star trek multiverse that can be accessed in some way at any time (if it's not a temporary parallel reality like the "Remember Me" warp bubble thing was), where as alternative timeline was a part of the main universe main timeline that was collapsed out at some point so it cannot be accessed in any way anymore. --Pseudohuman 05:22, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
I'd say: Alternate Timeline-it's the same universe, but different; In Yesterday's Enterprise, they remain in the same universe, but events unfolded differently due to an divergence in the past timeline. In an parallel universe, it's entirely separate from the main universe. -- 14:40, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
That was my point too. =) "The Tholian Web" is a tricky one though. The interphasic rift was an area of space where the mirror-universe and the prime-universe overlaps periodically, and the Defiant did disappear into the mirror-universe, but Kirk and the Enterprise only went halfway through into some kind of a "void-universe" (though thats not what it was called in the episode) Kirk described it: "I had a whole universe to myself after the Defiant was thrown out. There was absolutely no one else in it." and then it was seen as an utterly black void when the Enterprise went in there. --Pseudohuman 16:41, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
