Since its introduction in the second season of The Original Series, the Mirror Universe has been a fan favorite. This alternate world in which good is bad has captured the imagination of fans and allowed writers to put a new twist on Star Trek's familiar wrappings. Following 1967's “Mirror, Mirror,” our connection with this reflection of sorts was severed for many years. It wasn't until Deep Space Nine’s second season and “Crossover” in 1994 that we once again got a glimpse on screen.

In this episode of The Orb, hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing explore DS9’s third trip to the Mirror Universe in “Shattered Mirror,” including the connections between Benjamin, Jennifer, and Jake, what Deep Space Nine might have been like had the Siskos been a family aboard the station, and whether these trips to the Mirror Universe are simply playful jaunts or chances to further develop the DS9 story.
