Okay, I admit, the first part was good, but the second part, I got bored with it.  After Archer decides to go to earth to 'do away with the leadership' what happened?  Basically I got bored, got on a computer, got absorbed by what was going on in a computer game and missed the end.

A bit of a cop-out ending, really. He gets poisoned by his less than trustworthy consort, Hoshi, and she ends up taking over the Empire as Empress Sato. Not the worst ending out there, but they could have done more with what they had.

Thanks, that's disappointing.  I liked the evil Archer much more than the other characters overall.  I thought Hoshi's evil twin was one of the weaker ones.  Oh well, I suppose I didn't miss too much.  Thanks for the ending info.

I actually liked it, it wasn't a dissapointment.   It's a MU element done cleverly, where Hoshi saw an advancement opportunity and took it.  Think of it as "Revenge of the Little People".

My problem wasn't with the revelation (which is a nice little nod to Intendent Kira's position of power on the Mirror DS9), but with how rushed it all felt towards the end.  A lot of the episode had that unstructured and unfocused feeling to it, where it felt like it was just a series of unconnected events, followed by an effort to cram another half an hour's worth of story into ten minutes of show.  If I had to rank these two episodes against all the other Mirror Universe tales, Part One definately would rank up there with "Mirror, Mirror."  Part Two, on the other hand, trends towards the bottom, perhaps narrowly pulling ahead of "The Emperor's New Cloak."

Oh, but you must give it credit for those excellent space battle scenes when the Evil Archer breaks the U.S.S. Defiant away from the Tholian dock!  Superb sequence, it was.  The alien crewmember uprising was kind of okay, too, culminating in the scene with the Evil Trip overcoming the Evil Doctor trying to sabotage the warp engines.  I was rooting for the bearded Soval; he reminded of the bearded Spock.

Yeah, I really liked those sequences.  The entire episode of Part II wasn't written as well as I thought it would be, I must admit though.  But that didn't stop me from enjoying it, as it still was pretty good.  The CGI was real nice overall as well, I liked it, even the more-conteporary sound effects blending with TOS tech sounds wonderfully on the Defiant.  I figured they'd just use the classic sounds as pure as it was, but they didn't, and it was no dissapointment.  The sets were especially wonderful and so were the uniforms.  The story itself, again, was alright, but it could've been better.  The best part of the episode was the Defiant herself, basically.  I'm sure many would agree with me on that.
