Ever since Star Trek Enterprise brought back the Mirror Universe with the popular “In a Mirror, Darkly” in 2005, the alternative place with the beards has been all the rage. Pocket Books has released a couple Mirror Universe books with more on the way and IDW recently announced a Mirror comic, and now Diamond Select is headed to the other side.
DST recently announced that their popular Star Trek Minimates line continues this summer with a set based on the episode “Mirror Mirror.” The new set from DST will be the first time they have offered a boxed set of Trek Minimates. The set will include Mirror Universe versions of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Sulu, Uhura, and Marlena Moreau.

Original "Star Trek" series guest star BarBara Luna returns to "Star Trek: Phase ll" (formerly called "New Voyages") in the upcoming episode, "Enemy: Starfleet", written by veteran Trek author Dave Galanter.
In a recent interview regarding the New Voyages TV Guide Online Award win, James Cawley commented, "We are still casting the guest stars, but I can confirm that BarBara Luna will be traveling to New York to fill one of the guest spots."
Luna, who played Lt. Marlena Moreau in the original series episode "Mirror, Mirror," also guest starred in New Voyages' first episode, "In Harm's Way."
"Although BarBara was in a previous episode, that was much more of a cameo appearance, rather than a starring role that will feature her skills as an actor", said Cawley. "I can't say what character she will play just yet, there is still so much about this episode we want to keep under wraps until we get closer to production this spring."
"Enemy: Starfleet" will be filmed both at the famous Vasquez Rocks in California and at the Retro Films Studio in Upstate New York. See the write-up.

New Episode of Star Trek 100% Fan-Made
Second episode features performances by original Star Trek actors
Cow Creek Films is pleased to announce the completion of Star Trek: New Voyages, “In Harm’s Way.”
Star Trek: New Voyages is a non-profit production, available at www.NewVoyages.com. The show is created entirely by fans out of a love for Star Trek and is not affiliated with Paramount Pictures. “In Harm’s Way” is the second episode of the series, which features special guest performances by Star Trek alumni BarBara Luna and Malachi Throne, among others.
“It’s a tremendous thrill to work with these legends,” said Executive Producer Max Rem. “From the moment we wrote the part, I knew we needed BarBara Luna. She brought great style, maturity, sensitivity, and a bit of playful sexiness we could not have found with anyone else.”
“She was a complete joy to work with,” said James Cawley who is not only Production Designer, but also plays Captain James T. Kirk. The show picks up the Starship Enterprise in the fourth year of its famous five-year mission. “She was the original ‘captain’s woman,’ in the episode, ‘Mirror, Mirror.’ She still has great class and beauty.”
A long-time character actor, Malachi Throne is most recognizable to Star Trek fans as Commodore Mendez in the two-part episode “The Menagerie.” He also provided his low, resonating voice to the thoughts of the telepathic Talosians in the first series pilot, “The Cage,” but was later redubbed for a kinder, gentler sounding alien. (Throne’s voice can still be heard on the remastered version of “The Cage” available on the Star Trek DVDs.)
“We had written in a Klingon commander who had to be vicious one minute, but show some tenderness the next,” said Erik Korngold, the co-writer of “In Harm’s Way” along with Rem. “We had to get Malachi Throne. He is marvelous in the part. What a privilege.”
Started by Cawley and Executive Producer/Series Director Jack Marshall in 2003, Star Trek: New Voyages seeks to re-create the vision of the original ’60s sci-fi series. Marshall is understandably proud of his production team. “No one is drawing a salary, here. The entire thing is paid for and built by volunteers. Medical doctors, hotel industry professionals, grocery store workers, computer programmers, television camera operators, as well as a very talented group of actors – people with real lives have come from all over the world to contribute to the dream that is Star Trek.”
But Marshall is impishly closed mouth about certain details. “If you download our preview trailers from NewVoyages.com, you’ll get an idea of the storyline. And we’ve got some other Star Trek guest stars that we’re keeping under wraps until the episode is released. We’re confident the audience will love it.”
The original Star Trek series was created by Gene Roddenberry in 1966, but was cancelled after three years on the air. The dedicated fans gave it new life through conventions and fan-written fiction in self-published newsletters and magazines, until Paramount Pictures released “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” in 1979. The franchise has since spawned nine more films and four new television series.
“We are the fan fiction of the new millennium!”, says Marshall with no small display of glee. “Except we don’t have mimeographs. We have the internet.”
Cow Creek Films and Star Trek: New Voyages are in no way associated with Viacom International, Inc., Paramount Pictures, United Paramount Network, or their affiliates.
