  • New Frontiers (TOS comic miniseries) - This is the second part of the New Frontiers story arc, continuing on from the previous issue which established a mirror universe plot, Spock's continued recovery following the events of The Search for Spock, Kirk and crew visiting Regula I, and Starfleet assigning Captain Styles and the Excelsior to go to Regula to retrieve Kirk and his crew. The story continues into the next six issues as Kirk and his colleges work to stop their mirror universe counterparts.
  • "Mirror, Mirror" (TOS episode) - This issue uses the mirror universes originally established in this episode, and mimics the universe transition effect seen in that episode when the mirror-Enterprise travels to the primary universe.
