Ooooooh, I'm so sorry, but I need to put a plug in here. Also, because the challenge number is even calling out my name!

I've answered this question a in a pretty well rated foundry mission, and one I would actually consider to be my best! And I've won two contests...

So, rather than retype dialog from that, I'd like to politely suggest anyone interested to check out the following Foundry Mission for the Federation Faction. I'd consider it my submission.

Does it have to be Mirror Universe?

I've had a few story ideas involving alternate universes, and I'm thinking one of them might work for this Challenge.

I'll need to do a bit of thinking, though, just to make sure.

Technically speaking, my post involves two of my characters. The one the story revolves around, and the Mirror version of the other one I've used in Literary Challenges before (Antilles). I gotta say, that's some good reading there. Now, back to the Star Trek Destiny trilogy I picked up the other day.

Awww, dang...unfortunately I'm not really feeling this challenge. In a way, Alyosha did just confront something he sees as being like a twisted mirror of himself (and the Devidians undoubtedly felt the same way about him), so I feel like I just did something like this. Oh, well...there's next time.

Here is mine.

I took a direction that would see my captain resolve his mirror issue.

Due to my Cagalli character not having a Mirror counterpart, I opted to have mirror Amuro captaining the ship I used back in the first challenge entry I remember making, the Prometheus class Epyon. This also let me surprise my mirror with all the gadgets she has made for my characters.

Let me know what you think. Cheers!

Destroyer--

Definitely liked what you did there. I particularly enjoyed the way you were able to work humor into the dialogue without it coming off as farcical. It particularly makes you think, too, when you see how surprised the Mirror version of your captain is, that his supposedly meek and passive counterpart is able to pull a trick like beaming him into the brig. It also seems that both are plagued by a lack of foresight that got them into trouble: the Mirror not insisting on doing the transporting himself, and the "canon" captain assuming that having the Mirror's command staff in confinement would be enough and not acting to destroy whatever portal the Mirror came through.

Well done!

The background story is just to serve as a basis, and I just ask that you stay on topic. So, if this is "you" from an alternate universe, that works!

Thought I'd sticky link mine here http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...41&postcount=3

It plays into already existing plot for the STO universe.

I added one of me own. Honestly, it could be longer. Way longer. And more interesting, but I don't think I'll be able to cram it all into one posting, so you get the very first bit instead.
