Interesting… so the Voyager comic is basically positing the rebellion that overthrew the Terran Empire occurred much more “recently” in future history than what’s implied by the DS9 episode “Crossover”. In that episode, it seemed as though the Terrans has been defeated for decades—certainly not recently enough that they would have had the ability to design an Intrepid-class starship like Voyager.

Indeed. Now I have to reconsider one of my recent answers on Quora (“what would Mirror Universe Borg be like?”) which, in passing, posits that given the date of the Terran Empire’s fall, no M-Intrepid class would exist, and for that matter, there wouldn’t be any M-Hansens, since “eccentric travelling xenoarchaeologist” isn’t a career choice for subjugated Terrans. (But unaffected by that fall: the Caretaker, and its long-distance efforts to find a successor.)

Well this HAS to be an alternate mirror universe timeline… seeing that Mirror Tuvok was back in the Alpha Quadrant in the DS9 Terran Resistance when Mirror Voyager would be in the Delta Quadrant. So the differing timelines on when the Empire fell in the Mirror Universe as well as other inconsistencies, can be explained that way. Methinks the term ‘Mirror Universe’ at this point needs to be traded in for ‘Mirror Multiverse’.

I wish they would have made more Voyager comics, It should have been a 6 part comic book run, rather than a one shot.

Is the guy on the far left Paris or Chris Pine’s Kirk?!

Funny, I thought it was Bashir.

J.K. Woodward’s artwork is just SO bad. *sigh*
