    A Star Trek series set in the Mirror Universe, mostly in the Terran Empire. It would be a drastic departure from the "prime" universe, as already know from our brief jaunts there in other areas of Star Trek canon. Political intrigue, schemes and plots abound... with a good dose of backstabbing and "inventive" ways of gaining power and authority.

    I guess my question is, would any of you be interested in such a show? If so, where and when in the timeline would you like such a venture to take place in? The early days, following Empress Hoshi or during the Dsicovery/TOS era? Later, during the conflict between the Terran Empire and the Alliance (DS9)?

    There is such scope and potential for a show like this, I feel like its been neglected with only a few episodes in a shows history being devoted to it. One in TOS, none in TNG IIRC and a few in DS9 and most recently Discovery.

    Thoughts?

    Indeed, I think the Mirror Discovery was the most exciting look at the Terran Empire. Previously episodes were confined to the "hero" ship/station like "In a Mirror Darkly" parts 1 & 2 or even the original Mirror Universe episode in TOS. Discovery actually got to explore the wider Terran Empire all the way up to the Emperor, albiet through a character seen in the show previously. The uniforms were very cool too! The decorative gold plating for captains etc, a nice touch I thought.

    I definitely can't imagine being interested in any time period besides what we saw in Discovery.

    The Enterprise Mirror universe episodes were OK, but in general, mirror universe episodes in the past are all "OOOH Look how dastardly evil our main cast could be" and little beyond that. Discovery actually did some world-building.

    I suppose a Mirror Universe series could be interesting, though that would be after we got a Pike show, and I'm still not sure if I care they are making a Section 31 show.
