Review: Star Trek: The Mirror War – Geordi

Star Trek: The Mirror Wars – Geordi

As a fan of Star Trek, I have a different type of love for each of the series. Part of becoming a fan of anything, is being able to identify yourself within the story.  As each series, there was always that open character that stood out. As in the original series, there was Sulu and but mostly Spock.

This is where Star Trek: The Next Generation separates itself from all the other Star Trek franchises. As it not one or two characters that the audience empathizes with.  As what Roddenberry did with that franchise, was endear that cast of characters to the audience.  In the one-shot, Star Trek: The Mirror War – Geordi, one of ST:TNG’s favorite characters, one who gets his limits pushed.

WE find the Mirror Universe version of Geordi La Forge, being tortured by a mysterious figure, as he shows his resolve while trying to figure just how he got caught. As the reader soon finds out that he got sent on a secret mission by Picard  and that despite the pain inflicted, he actually enjoys it., as he has gone through much worse growing up.  AS we find out how he betrayed rthe owman he loved just so that he could move up the ranks. By issue’s end, we find out Troi was the interrogator and it was all a test.

Overall, Star Trek: The Mirror War – Geordi is a twisted tale in the Mirror Universe that shows darker shades of a familiar character. The story by Holtham is astounding. The art by the creative team is great. Altogether, one of the best stories IDW has done within Star Trek.

Can Victario swell the Purity Rebellion’s ranks with the greatest warriors in the empire? Can King Kaom defeat the finest archer in the empire, Marceus Lioneye?
