内容紹介

Fractured history. Broken lives. Splintered souls. Since the alternate universe was first glimpsed in the classic episode "Mirror, Mirror," something about Star Trek's dark side has beckoned us, called to us, tempted us -- like forbidden fruit on the Tree of Knowledge. To taste it is to lose oneself in a world of startling familiarity and terrifying contradictions, where everything and everyone we knew is somehow disturbingly different, and where shocking secrets await their revelation.

What began in 2007 with Glass Empires and Obsidian Alliances -- the first truly in-depth foray into the turbulent history of this other continuum -- now continues in twelve new short tales that revisit and expand upon that so-called "Mirror Universe," spanning all five of the core incarnations of Star Trek, as well as their literary offshoots, across more than two hundred years of divergent history, as chronicled by...

Christopher L. Bennett - Margaret Wander Bonanno - Peter David - Keith R.A. DeCandido - Michael Jan Friedman - Jim Johnson - Rudy Josephs - David Mack - Dave Stern - James Swallow - Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore - Susan Wright

5つ星のうち 3.0 Decent but uninspired 2009/1/27
By R. Spottiswood - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック|Amazonで購入
For twelve stories over such a range of time and Trek series, they end up being remarkably similar. They showcase the violence and treachery of the Mirror Universe, all right, but not much more, and the stories themselves are uninspired. Also, a heck of a lot of established characters get killed off. I realise that part of the appeal of the Mirror Universe is that writers can raise drama with the genuine possibility of character death. By halfway through the book, known character deaths becomes routine. Drama is not found in routine.

The first four stories are sent in the Terran Empire. The first story is told in flashback, but you can't tell which point is the present for 'Trip' Tucker. The second story is an intricate story of betrayal. The third is James Kirk becoming captain of the I.S.S. Enterprise. It is good, but told in a creepily light-hearted manner. After these three good stories, the Vanguard story is basically an action set-piece. It is the kind of story that works better on a screen than in print.

After that, the stories are set in the post-Empire period, with a mix of Alliance and Terran Rebellion stories, with the Memory Omega conspiracy as a frequent sub-plot. Three stories feature the Stargazer crew, some of the Next Generation cast, and some of the Voyager crew, and all are basically about the groups treacherously decimating each other. Keith R.A. DeCandido's story is the mirror for the Battle of Marcan V. Part of the interest in the story is that you don't know who is treacherous or who they intend to betray. The other main part is that the writing is very good and, it has to be said, noticeably above the quality of the rest of the stories.

Peter David's story is what Star Trek: Nemesis would be if mirrored, using the Excalibur setting ... and a comedy. Or at least, I found it impossible to take the story seriously. That is especially a shame as it features one of the largest-scale events in the Mirror Universe.

Jim Johnson's A Terrible Beauty is about Keiko Ishikawa. It is an intricate story of decepetion and treachery and a very subtle style of establishing control over people and events, and one of the better stories. There is a story with the Titan crew that is basically the usual slaughter, plus since it's Chris Bennett, some heavy-handed moralising. The last story is a David Mack special ops story. It's not up to his usual standard.

Overall, these stories are decent, but nothing special.

5つ星のうち 4.0 A Slight Stumble 2009/1/11
By Ryan Peterson - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
I have much enjoyed the Myriad Universes and Mirror Universes collections and have eagerly awaited this installment since it was announced for last year. However, this entry did not strike me fondly as its predecessors. Some of the offers were quite good (ie Homecoming, The Black Flag, Nobunaga), but others didn't strike me quite well (Sacred Chalice, the format of Family Matters.) Overall, it's a good read, but I would recommend reading the rest of the Mirror Universe books before delving into this one.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Mirror Universe - Part Three 2009/2/3
By P. McCoy - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック|Amazonで購入
Shards and Shadows continues on from Part One. I noticed, however, that some of the stories referenced other stories in Obsidian Alliances. Fortunately, I had the other book and was able to access the previously-referenced stories to get a better handle of the "thread" contained within Shards and Shadows.

5つ星のうち 4.0 The mirror Star Trek universe lives on 2014/2/11
By Charles Ashbacher - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック
One of my favorite episodes in the Star Trek original series was "Mirror, Mirror" and I consider the comment by the Imperial Spock about considering Kirk's suggestion to change the Empire to be the most ideal cliffhanger moment. Unfortunately, there was no subsequent episode of the original series depicting what the Imperial Spock actually did after his Captain Kirk materialized.
Fortunately, the potential of that storyline has been followed in episodes of subsequent television series as well as in books and other forms of print. This book contains a set of twelve stories of the mirror universe set using many of the characters of the "normal" universe, from the original series through much later times.
The stories are all interesting to the reader cognizant of the various Star Trek incarnations, if you are not familiar with them, being placed within that plotline with little in the setting of the context will make it difficult to understand. This is especially true if you are unfamiliar with the stories "Glass Empires" and "Obsidian Alliances." For example, the historian's note lead-in to the story "A Terrible Beauty" is "The present-day portions of this tale are set in early 2376, two weeks after the events of `Saturn's Children' from `Star Trek Mirror Universe: Obsidian Alliances'."
It is a tribute to the power of the original Star Trek concept that it has spawned so much subsequent creativity in books, short stories and movies. This book contains some good to excellent short stories about the parallel universe, a concept that originated in one single one-hour episode of the original series.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Quite good. 2010/10/11
By James Yanni - (Amazon.com)
形式:ペーパーバック|Amazonで購入
I don't generally care for the "Mirror Universe" stories; the basic concept is a fascinating one, but stories set in this universe have a tendency to get depressing, as (unlike in the regular run of Star Trek stories) the world is a dark and unforgiving place, and honor, honesty, and kindness generally are rewarded with a boot to the head. In this book, there is still some of that to be found, but we are BEGINNING to see the possibility of gradual change for the better. There ARE heroes, and sometimes they actually succeed in their missions. That makes this book for more palatable than some of the earlier books in the series.
