Yeah I think all of this, probably just wishful thinking threads, do lose sight of the fact that we will be unlikely to see mirror versions of ships in boxes of ships that are sold in the Cstore.



On the other hand, there is a possibility we might see them in the Cstore.

Ships like the Miranda make sense since they are likely to have originally been constructed before the fall of the Empire (and might have been lying around in some depot), while the newer ships are based on the ones from the Prime Universe.
Ships like the Excelsior...well I'm not sure there was ever any interest in building them.
They were conceived in an era where there was no Empire after all and never built in the Mirror Universe of that era.
And the newly refounded one probably had its hands full building "new" ships instead of retrofits of older ships.

I'd sure love to see one though.
Second Terran Empire maybe? or.. you know... the not so cool "Terran Federation"

I know it's referred to by that as well, however here's a little riddle:

If it's called the "Terran Federation", why do the ships still carry the ISS-designation?
Not TSS or TSS of TFSS or whatever?

Lemme guess, you've got 8472 in your name...which means your counterpart is either an Undine with a gotee or (since Undine also means some kind of water spirit)...a rock monster from "Galaxy Quest".

I.S.S. stands for "Imperial Star Ship", similar to how U.S.S. stands for "Ur Ship Sucks!"... I mean "United Star Ship".

Nah, ISS stands for "I Superior Shipper".
