    Every issue of "Mirror War" is the definition of reinvention, and "Geordi" continues to add to the argument as to why the universe of "Mirror War" should be the main continuity for Rodenberry's most known franchise, just off the levity of pure entertainment. Read Full Review

However, the framing device turns out to be preposterous, though perhaps less so in the Mirror Universe than the Prime Timeline. Read Full Review
