Literary Treks 144: Evil James Bond

Star Trek: Mirror Images



The Mirror Universe: there are many familiar faces there, but the reality is very different from our own. Rather than the kind, benevolent Federation we know and love, Earth is at the center of a vast empire, ruled by dark passions and the desire for conquest. There have been many stories set in this dark reality in the 50 years Star Trek has existed, each featuring familiar characters, but with a barbaric twist.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about the comic series Mirror Images. We discuss the fun, characterizations, a focused story, something's missing, more points, how it wraps up, an interesting interlude, and our ratings.

In the news segment, we discuss the news of DRM-free Star Trek books being available.
