Brief Synopsis:
An edit bringing in additional footage to create a subplot for the 'mirror' Kirk in 'our' universe.
Intention:
Inspired by keithbk, this edit extends Classic Trek's 'Mirror, Mirror'. The 'mirror' universe Kirk is seen being thrown into the brig in 'our' universe, but what leads up to that moment?
Other Sources:
Star Trek: The Original Series episodes 'The Enemy Within' and 'Turnabout Intruder'.

Release Information
  • AVI/MKV
  • MP4/M4V/MOV
Cuts and Additions:
This edit carefully selects particular moments of Kirk, when he is not 'himself' from two appropriate episodes:

* Portions of Lester-as-Kirk from 'Turnabout Intruder'. These being, Lester-as-Kirk entering a corridor, leading into entering the bridge and sitting in the command chair, and an edited version of that subsequent bridge scene.

* Two scenes from The Enemy Within, including the drinking in the corridor, and the sexual assault on Yeoman Rand.

These, along with the original 'our' universe scene already present in the episode, are spread out in three segments, after Kirk and McCoy ponder what their counterparts are doing in 'our' universe.

Trek very often likes to pull a "twisted" tale or two where the main characters act out of step with how we conventionally know them...sometimes they would recycle this a lot, so here Warlord takes a couple of examples of that, merging several episodes where Captain Kirk behaves more aggressively and strangely and integrates them against the backdrop of one of the franchise's most daring and timeless episodes in 'Mirror, Mirror'. These borrowed scenes add greater detail to things that Mirror Mirror left somewhat unseen during it's running time and explains things a lot clearer. Sometimes the best stories are the ones you get to tell in your head while all the official action is unfolding on the screen...you always wonder 'just what is going on, on that other side of the mirror?', this provides an answer, as well as takes the best scenes out of otherwise dissatisfying episodes. Experiance a longer and more engaging episode of classic trek.
