One hundred years ago, 4 crewmembers of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ crossed the dimensional barrier and found a mirror image of their own universe, populated by nightmare duplicates of their shipmates. Barely able to escape with their lives, they returned, thankful that the accident which had brought them there could not be duplicated...or so they thought.
But now the scientists of that empire have found a doorway into our universe. Their plan is to destroy from within, to replace a Federation Starship with one of their own. Their victims are the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D, who now find themselves engaged in combat against the most savage enemies they have ever encountered: themselves.

I really like the Mirror Universe for some reason, so I got a kick out of this book despite the poor narration. The technobabble is par for the course for Star Trek, but it seems to be even more annoying and distracting coming out of the mouth of De Lancie.
De Lancie is very good at playing Q, but he does not have a particularly good voice for audiobooks. His attempts to imitate the voices of the other characters fall flat.
One of my favorite episodes in the original series was the mirror episode. I had always wanted to know what the next Gen crew would have been like in that universe. Now I feel like I know.
This was a good audio book! But, the continuity of this audio book differs from other Star Trek novels. Especially when it comes to the welfare of a certain goateed Vulcan, that served on the original Enterprise ISS-1701!
