Star Trek: The Next Generation: Mirror Broken Reviews

  • Melissa

    This was awesome! Can't wait for the next one!

  • S

    Fabulous artwork and well written. As a plus my son loved it too! ☺

  • Lisa Buchanan

    This is a fun one. The altered (not opposite) versions of beloved characters are well-executed by writers Scott & David Tipton. (There’s even a good joke about Wesley’s sweaters.) Art by JK Woodward and colours by Charlie Kirchoff are excellent. Glad to see the news this week that IDW will be releasing a follow-up series later this year.

    Wonderful artwork, great likenesses, and a believable story. More? Make it so!

    With writing by Scott Tipton and David Tipton, and J.K. Woodward’s brooding, dramatic art, Mirror Broken gave us memorable characters (particularly Picard, Barclay and LaForge) and an action-packed story about Picard’s journey from washed-up captain to leader of the flagship of the Terran Empire.

    Picard’s plot to steal the Enterprise is aided by an ambitious Barclay; a deeply loyal Data, who’s augmented himself with Borg technology; and a seductive, manipulative Troi as his “Inquisitor.” Along t

    Picard’s plot to steal the Enterprise is aided by an ambitious Barclay; a deeply loyal Data, who’s augmented himself with Borg technology; and a seductive, manipulative Troi as his “Inquisitor.” Along the way he picks up the rest of our crew, each with their own evil twist.

    Of all the TNG women, Mirror Troi had the most to do in this series. However, I still would’ve liked to see her be a little more bad-ass, like the Mirror Troi whom the rest of the crew fear, in Diane Duane’s novel

    .

    Maybe I’d just been missing Mirror Yar, or any woman character whose violence could rise to that level. I wanted Mirror Troi to cackle while blowing up a defenceless ship, or Mirror Crusher to kick Jellico in the face.

    The conclusion of

    – in which Barclay watches the crew celebrate their victory and wonders how long the peace among them will last – felt sudden and slightly anti-climactic to me. Luckily for those of us who were left craving more from the TNG Mirror Universe, IDW recently announced another mini-series coming this May, Star Trek: TNG: Through the Mirror.

    The artwork alone is reason to get this fun story.

  • Ron Turner

    Doesn't really fit into the canon, but otherwise cheesy good fun. I got a kick out of the muscle shirts and the cameo of the Neptunian, an obscure reptilian action figure that has long puzzled Trekkies because it was so random and out of place.

    I know a lot of Star Trek fans find find the Mirror universe compelling, but I am not one of them. My big problem is that the Terran empire could never become an empire if people behave as depicted in this alternate reality. You cannot build an empire if crew members are spending their time coming up with ways to assassinate officers in order to get a promotion. An army needs esprit de corps and the members need to trust each other. I find the Terran empire implausible and it bears no resemblanc

    I know a lot of Star Trek fans find find the Mirror universe compelling, but I am not one of them. My big problem is that the Terran empire could never become an empire if people behave as depicted in this alternate reality. You cannot build an empire if crew members are spending their time coming up with ways to assassinate officers in order to get a promotion. An army needs esprit de corps and the members need to trust each other. I find the Terran empire implausible and it bears no resemblance to actual empires that have existed. Rome would not have conquered the known world if the military spent all its time trying to kill each other.

    This entry in the Mirror universe features the Next Generation crew. The story is simple enough. The Terran empire has been pushed back into our solar system by an alliance of the Klingons and Cardassians. There is a new secret ship, the Enterprise, that is believed to be a game changer which will enable the Terran empire to push back against its enemies and reclaim the star systems that have been lost. Jean-Luc Picard, captain of the Stargazer plans to capture this ship and use it to both further his own ambitions and those of the empire.

    The story was OK as far these things go, but I was not taken with it because I cannot buy into the premise of the Mirror universe. I thought the art was problematic. There seemed to be too much heavy reliance on photo referencing. I found that there were times when the artist seemed to forget that people's heads rest on top of their necks because he draws some of the characters with their heads sitting directly on their shoulders. It is not even close to being anatomically correct and it looks daft. There are errors in anatomy like this through the entire series.

    All in all I found this an underwhelming TNG story with sub par art.
