Michael Burnham: [voice-over] I can't rest here. Not really. My eyes open, and it's like waking from the worst nightmare I could imagine. Even the light... is different. The cosmos has lost its brilliance. And everywhere I turn, there's fear. -... - It's been two days. But they're already inside my head. Every moment is a test. Can you bury your heart? Can you hide your decency? Can you continue to pretend to be one of them? Even as, little by little, it kills the person you really are?

Now we know why L'Rell wanted to be captured
20 January 2018 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

And what happened to Voq.

I loved "Mirror Mirror" in TOS. I loved all of the Mirror episodes in Deep Space 9. And I really liked the "Fairest of them All" episode of Star Trek Continues. I'm familiar with Jerome Bixby, the science fiction writer that wrote "Mirror, Mirror". He was a writer for pulp sci fi rags back in the 50's along with Heinlein and Niven. Of the Original Trek franchises efforts in regard to the Mirror 'Verse, the closest to what we have here is probably the excellent two part "Through the Mirror, Darkly" eipsodes of Enterprise.

However, in these last 2 Discovery eps, we see a Mirror 'Verse even more sinister than in those two Enterprise entries.

And we still had the Mystery of what had happened to Voq. Now we know, and it didn't even happen in the Mirror 'Verse. We remember that L'Rell brought Voq to meet her Family, and she intimated that in order for Voq to re-claim his place as T'Kuvma's Successor that he would have to do something that was pretty much unspeakable.

On the other hand, Michael and Tilly need to keep being people who they are not, which goes far beyond deception. There is also some odd reference to The USS Defiant, first seen in "The Tholian Web" and this brings us back to the Enterprise episodes.

At first I didn't quite understand why Defiant was being brought up, until I remembered certain aspects of those Enterprise Eps.

All I can say about that, is the Discovery's Spore Drive stomps over everything. Prime Universe, Mirror Universe, past, Present and Future. So the Trick here is getting Stamits Fixed.

We've been hearing about a mysterious, unnamed, Emperor. Wonder who that could be?
