Or the Andromedans, who would have been my personal choice.

It's fun to see a couple episodes on a series when the cast gets to have a lot of fun with their parts (hey, even Voyager had an episode where they got to play darker, more sadistic versions of themselves), but in a game, it's just excessive.
I commented quite extensively on my Captain's Log about the mission, Broken Mirror. I, personally, found it overdone. I, as the then-Captain Wayland, found it disturbing that one man would focus so much effort trying to take over an alternate reality. I never did point out the massive resources pushed forward. The Mirror Universe is a great plot-point, a great alien-of-the-week, but by no means meant to be a total threat to the Federation.

That being said, a Terran Empire mirror of your ship is far more interesting and engaging than facing total fleets of phaser-fodder from that realm.
