Publisher's Summary

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.

Mirror universe TNG

You wanted a mirror universe episode with the TNG crew? Of course you did. So just download the book already. You don't need me to nit-pick it

poor narration

The plot was great, but the writing was not and the narrating was actually painful.

Poor performance holds back a good Trek yarn

Is there anything you would change about this book?

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.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John 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.

Loved it.

Just like watching TNG but in book form. The only think that could have made it better would be if it was read in the actors voices.
