At The Disco 9: “Despite Yourself”

“Despite Yourself” plunges the crew into the Mirror Universe where the evil Terran Empire rules the galaxy, with excellent direction by Trek’s own Jonathan Frakes. The universe swap allowed the cast to relish in the trappings of the Mirror Universe. Kudos to Mary Wiseman as Captain “Killy” and Shazad Latif and Mary Chieffo continue to do excellent work with their characters’ intense draw to one another.

The Shuttle Pod crew also discuss the new version of the mirror universe and how it has changed since we last saw it in Enterprise. Of note was the mention of the USS Defiant, integral to the plots of both “Despite Yourself” and ENT’s “In A Mirror, Darkly”. Along with the uniforms and Terran Empire logo, the Discovery team seems to have tweaked the Defiant as well. Check out this comparison of a wire frame of the Constitution class ship alongside the Defiant as we saw it in ENT.
