The alternative universe Enterprise episode is on on Ch4 now - Star Fleet as a force for evil
Wait til you see Hoshi and Tepal.
Thanks for that, I enjoyed Mirror Mirror as it is one of my fav episodes!
lol the Captain's dog, 'Porthos' is a big evil rottweiler
In A Mirror, Darkly.
I generally thought the 4th season was crap.
I have absolutely no idea why, but when I read that, I couldn't help but imagine Picard saying it as if he was saying "Captains Log, Star Date...". I'm odd like that .
I think it was proof they were running out of plot ideas when they had to make a whole new universe to play in
There were mirror universe eps all the way back to Classic Trek, so it's nothing new. 4th season Enterprise did a lot of plotline tie-ups like this.
I dunno, all the ways they've done it since the original series alternative universe episode have been good - particularly the DS9 one where the rebels steal the Defiant specs... one of the Star Trek PC games (was it the one of the Voyager fps's?) had a holodeck section set in the alternative universe, TOS era - that was good
I didnt like the last episode of enterprise. It was more like a TNG episode. I wont say no more as it isnt on C4 for a few more weeks and dont want to spoil it for them who havent seen it
it was the first Elite Forces game, when the ship is trapped in that rift place, one of the ships also trapped there is a terran emperial ship from the TOS mirror universe.
The trilogy of books by William Shatner on the mirror universe are very good too. They even explain at which point the universes diverged. Although thats blown out of context by the start of this Enterprise episode as there the terran empire is shown as existing as an evil entity from way back in the history of earth and in the books it's explained as starting at the time of first contact.
The 4th was alright, I enjoyed Brent Spiners cheesy cameos - but it wasn't a patch on Season 3. I really did enjoy that.
oh no ive missed it!! will E4 repeat this do you know?
mmmmmmmmmm hoshi ... yep that episode was so totally awesome
It just thats what the cameos really looked like to me. Pure cheese! It just seemed like they were running out of ideas and thought oh I know i'll bring in Brent Spiner.
I couldn't stand the whole Augment section of that season. Their costumes just seemed like an 80's TV show to me for some reason. Also it seemed like they tried to clean up the mistake of going back to WWII pretty quickly. Should have lasted longer than two episodes that story.
gotta dig those 'evil' crop-top uniforms for the ladeez
Woof, woof. /Pants like a dog.
It wasn't out of desperation, it was another tie-in. Those who know their Trek history will remember the augment episode from TOS (not to mention the Wrath of Khan), where it was stated that a Dr. Soong was responsible. Since Dr. Noonien Soong was played by Brent Spiner in TNG, it made good sense for him to play Arik.
I'm in complete agreement that S4 was somewhat lacking compared to S3, but the TV execs must take a lot of the blame for that after almost canning Enterprise at the end of S3.
Of course, the really lame episode was the whole Riker thing at the end. That's no way to finish a Trek series.
agree with berserker on this- a trek should end with something a little more interesting...
I know what you mean about it tying in. Just seems like they could have protrayed the story a bit better. And those Augments just annoyed me!
