Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

A friendly reminder regarding spoilers! At present the expanded Trek universe is in a period of major upheaval with the continuations of Discovery and Prodigy, the advent of new eras in gaming with the Star Trek Adventures RPG, Star Trek: Infinite and Star Trek Online, as well as other post-57th Anniversary publications such as the ongoing IDW Star Trek comic and spin-off Star Trek: Defiant. Therefore, please be courteous to other users who may not be aware of current developments by using the {{spoiler}}, {{spoilers}} OR {{majorspoiler}} tags when adding new information from sources less than six months old (even if it is minor info). Also, please do not include details in the summary bar when editing pages and do not anticipate making additions relating to sources not yet in release. THANK YOU


Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

Through a Glass, Darkly was the name of an RPG sourcebook released by Decipher in 2005, focused entirely on the mirror universe.


"I had an opportunity to observe your counterparts here quite closely. They were brutal, savage, unprincipled, uncivilized, treacherous... I found them quite refreshing."
Spock to Kirk and McCoy, Mirror, Mirror
Through the looking glass... darkly.
Haven't you ever wanted to phaser the captain, level a helpless planet, and steal your weight in gold-pressed latinum? Now you can – on the other side of the mirror. In this setting book for the Star Trek Roleplaying Game, you can bring Federation ideals of justice to the Mirror Universe, or revel in your own character's dark reflection. Prowl the Terran Empire with Captain Kirk of the I.S.S. Enterprise, or crush puny Human rebels with Intendant Kira of the Cardassian-Klingon Alliance. So grab your agonizer, grow a goatee, and watch your back–because in the Mirror Universe, nothing is what it seems...
Through a Glass Darkly: The Mirror Universe includes:
Complete setting information for the Terran Empire from Star Trek and the brutal Alliance from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Rules and guidelines for creating your existing character's mirror image.
Everything you need to play a "Mirror Series," including new skills, cruel traits, and the malign Wheel of Comeuppance.
Star Trek RPG Rules and statistics for the agonizer, the Tantalus Field, and the deadly devices of Imperial Security.
Unsolved mysteries of the Mirror Universe to explore on your own or use in your series.


The sourcebook was only released and distributed electronically. It provides players with a fairly complete history and scientific explanation of the mirror universe, much of which contradicts at least mildly with information given in other non-canon sources. It also gives information on how to create a mirror counterpart for an already existing character in the RPG.
