    Isn't that just a reference to the Tantalus field in the original Mirror, Mirror?
    The Tantalus field didn't allow Kirk to teleport around.
    A.) Possible that it's just propaganda - that way nobody starts wondering how he manages to crush his foes without even being present.

    B.) He owns both a portable Tantalus Field and either a spatial trajector or an Iconian gate, secrets he hasn't shared with anybody who doesn't actually need to know.

    Daniels would be interesting from a story standpoint. Especially if there was no difference between normal and mirror daniels. Does the time stream already count the other dimensions? He's either infaltrating it to maintain the timestream. Or he's really the emporer doing the opposite in our universe to keep his power. Or, more interestingly, both!

    Plus it would explain why seeing him gives me an overwhemingling powerful urge to punch him in the face. 8p

    IDK, Daniels always seemed like Star Trek equivalent to Phil Coulson, just something about his voice and mannerisms, might also be the hair.

    Oh, man... Wouldn't that be a crazy twist? From the moment he showed up on ST:ENT, he's been nudging the timeline his way...

    My wish: Mirror Gabriel Lorca resurrected by mycelial network, simply because I love that character
    My tip: James O'Brien, nowhere was said he died

    I would also like Ezri Tigan to show up because I like cute but naughty girls. 😊

    It's just Tendi as Emperor Dominator doing an impersonation of Mirror Shaxs who was a Terran in that reality.

    Well, speculation pertaining to the Emperor aside, I am kinda hoping this storyline might become the secondary catalyst (we know the primary catalyst was Mirror Georgiou's departure from the MU) for the eventual downfall of the Terran Empire that Kovich made reference to in DSC 'Die Trying' .

    That would be nice.

    Or at least they do something akin to the novels where the Terran Empire becomes like a Galactic Commonwealth. Though hopefully better executed then it was in the novels without Spock's anime style "master plan".

    I still preferred that over the 'Shatnerverse's' take on the MU!

    Shatnerverse's take on the MU is BS, realistically speaking Mirror Kirk should had a bunch of illegitimate children running around before his demise, Prime Kirk may have been a rep for being a womanizer however all his interactions required consent, the same can't be said about his Terran counterpart, consent doesn't seem to exist within the mirror universe, Red Shirt Sulu almost had his way with Prime Uhura, if Prime Kirk didn't intervene who knows how badly that could have gone.

    I would say you're missing probably the most obvious one, I mean half of these you put wouldn't even be alive at the time the game is set.

    One we do know is alive though and who was very high up at least at the end of DS9 is a certain Julian Bashier who has already done voice work in the game.

    I would say 'Smiley' O'Brian too, but he was apparently assassinated by his daughter according to a mission that has since been scrapped, not sure if they're keeping the same timeline as that.

    I Imagine the Terran Emperor just sitting on his throne petting his lap Caitian like Doctor Claw, Terrans conquer planets and enslave alien races right? so I figured Terrans would treat a race of humanoid cats like regular earth cats.

    Possibly.

    Probably doing way more than petting - Humans do have a fascination with the exotic, after all.​​

    William Shatner would be quite expensive to do VO work

    That's the least of their problems when it comes to Shatner, according to Kael years ago he got pissed off at Cryptic over something that happened on Twitter, blocked the official STO Twitter account, and refused to ever talk to them in the future.

    Ohh god this is so old, it was like the very first community manager STO had.

    O6ZXB9s.jpg

    Personally, I don't care. Shatner's ego is too massive for the game. He's an overrated, arrogant, bore and the game loses nothing by not having him in it.

    It would never work anyway - our character is supposed to be the hero of the story and there is no way on god's earth Shatner would tolerate a story where the universe doesn't revolve around Kirk.

    Makes him the perfect ego for a Terran emperor.
    My bet is Tilly changed genders to either male or yet to be determined. It would explain the terran focus on exotic research from the prime universe.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    Might be revealed as the next Terran Emperor after we kill the current Emperor.

    No, not your character - YOU. You, the player, are the Terran Emperor.

    What if the Emperor turned out to be Herbert West? (Think about it.)

    BTW what counts as terran, we know mirror humans are terrans, but what about terran cyborgs, terran augments and terran clones?

    Mirror Data?

    well, it has to be a human, so that eliminates a trill or vulcan or any other alien. My money is on Rios Raffi or Seven.

    It would fit my character. My main had a species breeding program. I mated all the species to make new stuff....

    I'm just hoping not for a Disco character. Anything but that.

    Mirror Dr. Gillian Taylor. Mirror Rain Robinson. Mirror Joan Collins, but something other than Disco.

    Ooh, Edith Keeler would be fun ;-)
  • paradox#7391 paradox Member Posts: 1,145 Arc User
    but we have to remember that the current emperor is a human male.
  • wideningxgyrewideningxgyre Member Posts: 683 Arc User
    If not for the need for it to be voiced, I'd say the player is the Emperor - that would make the best twist from a gameplay and story perspective.

    Also, how entertaining would it be to have to fight your own ship in-game or fight yourself on ground using all your existing powers, traits, kit modules, weapons, and skills.

    A "twist"?

    That's like, literally the standard when it comes to evil/mirror/bad timeline universe stories.

    "In this issue/episode/arc, the hero(es) must fight their greatest enemy of all: themselves!"

    In fact, players considered it a funny twist that the über-badass DSC Fed's Mirror counterpart simply got killed by Killy with a spoon, before they retconned this in the lamest way by saying Killy lied (for no real reason while also ignoring the boasting of the Mirror DSC tutorial officers).
