    Terra Incognita is a slightly odd set of 6 issues barely knitted together by the fact that Mirror Barclay is present on the Prime Enterprise-D for all of them, which mostly serves to make our Prime crew look a little stupid. I will say I loved how much Doctor Selar and Sonya Gomez were featured - both characters who were great in small TNG roles and deserved more screen time.

    The story features probably one of the least popular supporting characters in Star Trek history, Reginald Barclay. And it's not even him, but his Mirror Universe counterpart. I can't help but wander how the actor playing the guy in the TNG TV series felt to be this spineless nobody. There's plenty of preparation, Picard gets a chance to shine as a skilled diplomat, Ryker is bypassed by Wesley of all people, Worf is being all 'whoof, whoof, let's tazer them!', so there is nothing new for the regu The story features probably one of the least popular supporting characters in Star Trek history, Reginald Barclay. And it's not even him, but his Mirror Universe counterpart. I can't help but wander how the actor playing the guy in the TNG TV series felt to be this spineless nobody. There's plenty of preparation, Picard gets a chance to shine as a skilled diplomat, Ryker is bypassed by Wesley of all people, Worf is being all 'whoof, whoof, let's tazer them!', so there is nothing new for the regular TNG fan. The most annoying thing is that nobody is smart enough to figure out that Mirror Barclay replaced Prime Barclay. Unfortunately, this supposed third part of the Mirror Saga is anything but that. While Mirror Barclay imprisons Prime Barclay, he performs his duties admirably, gets a girlfriend and is a kind of tutor to the inexperienced Wesley. The stories are more or less standalone adventures in the regular TNG era. They feel like those TV episodes that are directed by a newbie as filler until a proper scifi story goes through post-processing. I'm thinking of all those boring episodes in the holodecks with Shakespeare plays or Holmes investigations. The Enterprise is tasked with fixing a ship that is engaged in the Cardassian cease fire negotiations. Mirror Barclay dustinguishes himself when he single-handedly fixes the ship. He is frustrated by his counterpart's lack of a spine, but intends to take full advantage of what this universe has to offer. The main focus becomes a peace negotiation that doesn't go quite as planned. (view spoiler)[Picard is outright begged by the other ship's captain to transport the ambassadors on the Enterprise so as to better ensure their safety and make a show of force to the Cardassians. The most important Vulcan negotiator is fatally wounded as the shuttle crashlands. Mirror Barclay builds a device that increases his chances of survival, but the patient still dies from his injuries. He transfers his spirit and experiences into another Vulcan, dr. Selar. She doesn't want to use her new-found knowledge to carry on the negotiations, but Picard convinces her it's for the best. (hide spoiler)] The second story has an away team led by Ryker visit Faundori where the locals intend to join the Federation. Their automated ship construction facilities would help rebuild the Federation fleet. They get attacked by the worker drones who quickly retreat after an Enterprise crew member falls to her death. The Administrata that welcomed the away team openly blame the Builders for the mishap. Ryker can't contact the Enterprise because of a dampening field. While working on a solution he challenges Wesley to do the same. (view spoiler)[Wesley is drawn to a remote place in the factory where a drone speaks to him. The crewmember that fell to her death is ok and the drones are gaining sentience which is being ignored by the Administrata. The drones want to be recognized, so they took advantage of the away team's presence to start talks with the Administrata. (hide spoiler)] The tentacled Lolligans are going extinct because of a disease. Their entire population is set to be put into hibernation if a cure isn't found soon. In recent years they have undergone genetic manipulation to eventually be able to return to the oceans like their ancestors. (view spoiler)[They need to revise their genetic program as the accelerated rate of change is pushing theur bodies too far. (hide spoiler)] Mirror Data has returned to the Prime Universe. The Mirror crew is non too happy with Mirror Barclay who seems to have sided with the enemy. The Prime Enterprise security team is too slow to stop them. (view spoiler)[This story starts out by far as the most annoying thing I've read in the Star Trek Universe. These Prime Universe ignorants have the goddamned nerve to say they didn't realize Barklay was replaced. 'We were all so stupid,' 'we were duped,' they were 'all still somewhat rocked'. Give me a damned break! Mirror Barclay is saved from execution when he gives Mirror Picard the location of the Faundori planet that can rebuild the Empire's fleet. (hide spoiler)]

    This was a lot of fun to read. Came highly recommended by my sister, and I can see why. The entire volume was akin to watching TNG episodes - different issues focus on different characters, while the world is built around the central plots and themes. All the stories are connected by Mirror Universe Barclay, a character who insidiously enmeshes himself with the Enterprise-D crew, but we don't know what his agenda is (if he has one) till the very end.

All the stories are connected by Mirror Universe Barclay, a character who insidiously enmeshes himself with the Enterprise-D crew, but we don't know what his agenda is (if he has one) till the very end. There were some minor continuity issues with the art and the text, but that didn't detract from the overall experience of spending 150 pages with the crew. The Tiptons really know how to invoke the original source material of the Star Trek shows, and the art team almost perfectly capture the looks of the actors playing the characters. If you're a Star Trek fan, you're going to love reliving the franchise through this book. I especially loved how much importance Troi and Dr. Crusher are given, mostly because the show occasionally failed to give the characters their due. That being said, Guinan and Worf got short shrift, and they should have featured more heavily in this volume. I am actually quite willing to dive into further volumes of this series to see what happens. This was very much an introductory volume, easing readers back into the world of TNG and familiarising oneself with the characters. The main action will probably kick off from the next volume.

Mr. Tipton does nothing to advance this story line, and all of the setup of the last book was for nothing. Mirror Barclay performs his duties admirably and is quite helpful to the prime universe crew. Other than the self confidence exuded, this could have been stories about prime Barclay. However the stories were not even that good. How many times in the Star Trek television series do we see a shuttle craft crash with some technobabble reason why they simply can't send a signal for help? Scott Tipton doesn't think this story has been done enough. (hide spoiler)] Nothing of consequence happens in this book. The stories were boring and unoriginal.

    Soweit es um das Mirror-Universum geht, ist dieser Band für mich im Vergleich zu den vorherigen beiden schwächer.

Erst in der letzten Story (Issue6) geht es wieder aktiver um das Mirror-Universe. Ein weiterer Faktor - Original-Crew - kommt hinzu, der mich störte. (view spoiler)[Die Crew hatte gerade mit den Doppelgängern zu tun und das veränderte Verhalten Barcleys wird in den Stories manchmal auch von den Führungsoffizieren kommentiert und dennoch kommt niemand auf die Idee, die beiden Aspekte zu verknüpfen? Was ist mit Counselor Troi? Nimmt sie denn keine weitere Veränderung in den Sitzungen wahr? Oder z.B. bei der Einweisung durch Barcley, während der er ein seltsames Verhalten zeigt und sie direkt vor ihm steht (Issue2 von6)? (hide spoiler)] Info: In den ersten drei Stories geht es um Friedens-Verhandlungen mit den Cardassianer, die übrigen drei sind Einzelgeschichten mit Setting-Kontinuität.
