In a Mirror, Darkly

Since I was in the Mirror Universe I figured why not visit with the appropriated Defiant crew.

I did enjoy seeing the effort they went to in these episodes to retain the Original Series look and feel.  The Gorn left a lot to be desired but overall I loved seeing this and I expect the cast had a great time filming it.

The final in my set of three TOS Klingon sketch cards.

When I set out to draw them I just wanted to make it clear who was who and I’m happy with the end result as I think you can tell which is which.  At some point in the future, I might try and do the three of them cured of the augment disease as they appear in DS9.

I really loved how they used William Campbell for Koloth, he was inspired recasting and wonderful as Kirk’s counterpart in The Trouble With Tribbles.  I really wish we could have seen more of him in TOS (and Kang and Kor).

Part of a set of three.

I love the original Klingons and I love it, even more, how DS9 brought them back.  It was wonderful of them to include them.  My goal here was to make sure you could tell what Klingon is being featured rather than just generic TOS Klingons.

I do also appreciate Worf’s sash even more from season one TNG matching the ones worn by Kor and Kang.

This will be available in a three card set.

Actually, MU Chekov is maybe creepier than MU Sulu.

I do enjoy overdoing his hair though 😀

The full set of cards should be up on Etsy now (unless they’re already gone)

Possibly the biggest transformation in the episode Nichelle Nichols must have had a ball playing goodUhura pretending to be bad ass Uhura.

I did like in Enterprise how they made Tucker deformed due to the warp engines, I guess the budget really only stretched to Spock and Kirk getting new uniforms but I do think the engineers would cop a lot of radiation!

Mirror Universe Dr McCoy – sketch card

I feel bad that McCoy didn’t get a radically different “shop of horrors” uniform.  It’s actually been ages since I watched Mirror Mirror so I don’t remember if we actually get to see the sick bay or not.  I guess I should watch it again.

Mirror Universe Mister Spock – sketch card

Again this is one of my bugbears, just because Spock had an iconic goatee in the Mirror Universe it doesn’t mean that all Vulcans are going to be wearing them.  I give Soval a pass because I guess it’s a homage but then Sarek has one as well and I guess I’m just sick of the MU 😉

I do need to add though that these cards are fun, which was the intent of the original episode.
