I THINK IT IS BECAUSE TOS SERIES MIRROR SPOCK PRABABLY MADE AN IMPACT AND THAT STARFLEET IN MIRROR PROBABLY WAS OVERTHROWN BY THE KLINGONS OR SOME OTHER ALIEN!

For a non-canon glimpse into a tng-era MU, try ''Dark Mirror'' by Diane Duane(And you thought the Big D was powerful here)which was released in hardback, way back arond '91 or '92....or the Shatnernovels ''Spectre'', ''Dark Victory'', and ''Preserver''(All including the regular-universe Picard, etc and counterpart)

I'm glad TNG didn't have a Mirror, Mirror episode,
whatever the reason was. They probably just wanted
to get away from repeating the original series, too
much. If they wanted a cheap episode, have a holodeck
adventure. Or have Q or L'waxana Troi visit the ship ...

I have heard that the Powers That Be made an effort to stay away from orginal series concepts. There are a few examples such as The Naked Now, but I heave heard that they wanted to make it on their own and not have to fall back on orginal series ideas. Later in the series they used a few ideas like Devil's Due that were orginally written for Kirk and Spock , not Picard and Data.

I don't really mind that TNG didn't have a mirror episode. I really enjoyed DS9 mirror episodes, I think that it would have been stupid to put in mirror episodes. Do you see a pattern...


TOS: Mirror Episode, TNG: No Mirror Episode, DS9: Mirror Episode, VOY: No Mirror Episode, ENT: Mirror Episode

Yeah probably because they didn't want to "copy" too many TOS concepts.

If you can read this it means I've got something to work on here.

This could be a good non-canon book series for someone to write! I would read it...

He might have had hair like how Spock had facial hair.

because when tng was on the air the mirror episode of tos was just an episode and not a tradition.  You could just as easily said why didn't they do an episode in the city in the clouds or with the giant horn of plenty.   Was ds9 that made the mirror episodes a star trek tradition.
