What's a Girl Gotta Do to Get to the Mirror Universe?

by Maggie Geppert, Mirror Vice Chairman

23rd November 2018


The Mirror Universe is fairly well fleshed out in First Edition.  You can easily play [MU] in a variety of forms; Mirror [SF], [TE] or [KCA].  In Second Edition it’s also quite easy to play Mirror Universe factions such as Starfleet or the Terran Empire, because they are simply [AU] variants on the [SF] or [TOS] affiliations and play to their existing headquarters.  However, this has not been the case for the Klingon-Cardassian alliance.  In fact, this deck has been relegated to the status of one of my “Cool” decks for a couple of years now.  It requires you to play three headquarters (Mouth of the Wormhole, Deep Space Nine, Qo’noS, Heart of the Empire and Cardassia Prime, Hardscrabble World) and lots of Multidimensional Transporter Devices (assisted by Souls of the Dead) to get your [AU] personnel in play.  Due to the triple HQ, you have to play two 50 point missions to get a win, which is always a tricky proposition.

            Enter the newest Second Edition expansion, *name redacted*.  Playing KCA will become much easier with the newest Headquarters mission, Bajor, Terok Nor.  This gorgeous HQ allows all your [AU] personnel from a variety of affiliations to play to it and also makes all your non-unique [Car] and [Kli] personnel [AU] as well.  Since it says “own,” this means they have the icon even when they’re in your deck or hand.  You’ll also notice a new Keyword on this mission, Mirror.  I’m looking forward to seeing what this will mean in future design. I’d love to tell you more about how I plan to upgrade this deck even more, but…

In the meantime, enjoy the updated version of this deck.  I can’t wait to complete the full upgrade, which will happen after December 7th.
