For this new 8-issue series, they invite readers “to witness what the galaxy could be like at the mercy of a Captain Picard whose greatness is measured in cunning and cruelty.”  Joining them on this journey into the Terran Empire are cover artist J.K. Woodward and artist Gavin Smith.

It would be interesting to know how the MU merch sells compared to the Prime universe. Asking for a friend…..

From what I’ve been told, it sells quite well. Answering for a friend.

imagine a TNG mirror movie instead of Insurrection ..(Geordies wormhole at the end of FC sent them into the mirrorverse)..

Yep…. I always said that it could’ve been worse than Picard dancing the mambo by himself, Data becoming besties with a kid who has a pet CGI turd with legs and Troi and Beverly talking about their boobs getting firmer.

Way worse.

You know, I do actually enjoy a re-watch of Insurrection from time to time, but have to say your description of it there just had me in stitches. Cheers!

Still wouldn’t be worse the Generations.

Would have been fun.

At the time I was hoping they’d tie into the Dominion War explicitly and feature Jadzia with Worf as a way to keep Terry Farrell on DS9 for the final year. Of course we know Paramount insisted on a light hearted film despite First Contact’s success, seemingly because The Voyage Home was the highest grossing film.

It’s not easy to make a good film, and no one ever sets out to make a bad one, but man did it not come together for Insurrection, and that really threw them off their game.

I remember reading a UK sci fi magazine at the time. It was the first movie Patrick Stewart was Exec producer and he killed it. He said the original script was dark and had him killing Data for going rogue on that planet. He wanted a romp instead and had his love story thrown in.

Never let actors become producers…
