9.5, if not for some things I didn't understand, like why Cochrane shot the vulcan and why the USS Defiant was a bit behind its time while in the mirror universe.

Highly exceeded my - to be honest, somewhat low - expectations. From the very second tonight's episode started I was hooked. I'm very pleased that once again this show has taken me by surprise. Bravo, bravo! Castmembers, feel free to take a second curtain call.

Loved the fact that the first casualty they happened on was a red shirt.

 

Ick, what they did to Tucker!

Cochrane killing the Vulcan.
Also on another thread, someone mentioned why Picard did not intervene in this timeline, which is a good question. I loved the uniforms, especially T'Pol's and Hoshis :dude: And is Hoshi's name in this universe just the first two letters of her first name, if you know what I mean? :dude: All the characters are wonderfully and evilly skewed. It was awesone to see the the TOS ship and see the bridge get lit up. Excellent 9.5. Can't wait to see what they do in part 2. Amazing work by the cast and fantastic sets. The opening blew me (and you know who) away. The theme was awesome! Encore! :dude::bow::bow::bow: Edited by Ace

I missed it tonight because of work, but the good news is that I'm off Sunday when they replay it on my local UPN station.

I agree whole heartedly but sadly I have to say it's bitter sweet to know that these are the final shows and finally getting just a glimpse into the Star Trek universe that many of us first encountered.

The U.S.S. Defiant is from 2268, and a different timeline.

But all the other mirror universe things happen at the exact time as the regular universe. The USS Defiant went missing in a TOS episode, which I doubt would be happening at the same time as when this episode took place.

I gave it a 9. From start to finish I was hooked. I loved the way they used footage from first contact and I really think the theme song should have been like that from the start. IMHO The only reason I did not give it a 10 was because I have to wait a whole week to see what happens.

Hmm, feel asleep after about five minutes (VCR wasn't set correctly) and I'm guessing since it's about to be cancelled I won't be seeing a rerun. Do you know any site that gives a synopsis of what happened so I can watch part II next week?

Excellent episode. Another example of the quality that Enterprise has achieved. Sadly, this great series has been prematurely cancelled just when its getting great.

I bet the cast must have had a great time filming these two episodes. Their characters were all so different...

I'm really looking forward to watching this again on Sunday on Space and I can hardly wait for Part 2 next week.

 

UH, I'll see if I can find a good synopsis for you however if you are interested I can get you a link or two to sites where you can download the episode if you would rather watch it instead.

At first I thought I was catching the tale end of First Contact the movie. It wasn't until Cochran blew that Vulcan away that I knew I was watching Enterprise, and then I said "Damn! That was unexpected!" Then they had the alternate credits which, again, was very creative.

 

But think of it. Had the Borg not attempted to interfere with First Contact then Riker, Troi, and LaForge would not have been able to tell Cochran - who always was a bit paranoid - that the Vulcans were good guys.

 

So the natural state of things could very well have been that Cochran blows the Vulcan away, thus starting the "mirror universe" as a spinoff from our universe.

 

But if that *is* the natural state of things then... WE ARE THE MIRROR UNIVERSE!!! and the entire "normal" Trek universe was never supposed to happen.

I actually kindof like that theory, Van Roy. :dude:

 

I taped it and watched it today. Fun episode. I'll give it an 8. I too thought one of the biggest detractors was Bakula's acting. I also didn't care for the special opening sequence.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to the conclusion.

I gave this episode a 9. :dude:

It held my attention to the very end.

I can't wait til the second part. :dude:

 

If part one is any indication of what a good episode should be then part two should be AWESOME!!!!! :dude::bow::bow: :bow:

I give this episode a 10, because of all the ENT episodes so far, this is by far the best(for me) can't wait to see what happens next week!

9.5

 

A TOS fangirl's dream. It wasn't perfect, but I enjoyed this episode more than any other this season, and I've enjoyed the others quite a bit. Sorry, I like him usually but Bakula overacted. :dude: That's a shame. He just seemed a little much.

 

When they take her light out from under that bushel, Linda Park is prettier than Jolene Blalock. Amazing. Loved the Tholian/Defiant tie in. Clever.

WOW. I am highly disturbed about it since it should have offended my sensibilities, but MU Trip and T'Pol were hot....in a perverse and disturbed way, but hot nonetheless. :P They've got it going on in any universe. Also, is it my imagination, or did MU Trip seemed more bitter than just plain evil? The way he was leering at T'Pol whilst talking about "doing her a favor with her Pon Farr" was disturbingly wicked. Heh. :bow:

I have never much cared for these mirror universe episodes, except for Mirror, Mirror in TOS, so I was expecting to not like this epsiode.

I gave it a ten. Next week should be really great, but whats even better is how much UPN dished out for the two episodes... I love pay back!!!

I thought the episode was a bit weak. I don't really like how two of the last episodes are on a completely different ship and dimension.

Click For Spoiler
And the last episode is going to be a holodeck program.
I think the series is getting a bad deal in it's final days.

T'Pol+long hair+mirror universe uniform=very sexy

 

All in all, I adored it. But I gave it a 9.5 because there was one ity bity thing that confused me.

How'd they get the cloak? I thoght the mirror universe didn't get cloaking devices until Rom and Quark brought one over.

it's a suliban cloaking device. I'm guessing they attacked a suliban ship and stole their cloaking device

well, this is what memory alpha says:
The possibility of divergent mirror universes has also been considered by fans -- to explain costume and effects inconsistencies in the structure of the mirror universe. In "Through the Looking Glass", we saw Alliance ships de-cloaking, and in "The Emperor's New Cloak" the Alliance didn't have a cloaking device. In "Mirror, Mirror", when Kirk enters the turbo-lift with mirror-Chekov, the younger officer is seen wearing a gold sash, but when they're actually in the lift the sash is absent. When they leave the lift and Kirk gets ambushed, the sash is back!
