Review:

"Crossover" is a runaway favorite with fans, and it's easy to see why. The alternate universe is a dark, twisted place full of intrigue and high weirdness--and Kira Nerys's evil twin running amok in black stretch vinyl. We're talking kitten with a phaser. We're talking the whole reason for Starfleet's temporal policy department. Watch as alternate Odo rules hapless Terran miners with an iron fist. See Dr. Julian Bashir (Alexander Siddig) perform actual hard manual labor in the mines of Terok Nor; think silently that after the way he behaved in the episode's teaser, maybe he deserves it. Meet a kinder, gentler Quark who rescues hew-mons from their torturous fate. Marvel as Kira flirts with herself. All this while alternate Garak schemes... it's just too wondrously bizarre for words.

The story has its roots in the original series' "Mirror, Mirror"--a fact openly referenced in the screenplay. Thanks to solid writing and a lot of inside humor, the ensemble cast plays it to the "alternate" hilt. Special kudos to Nana Visitor as the coquettishly perverse Intendant--a woman with an ego so large she gets a charge out of having her alternate self around to talk to. Kudos to the DS9 station as the eerie Terok Nor, which looks like a slice of juicy film noir. Watch for Colm Meaney's poignant performance as Smiley and Armin Shimmerman's softened Quark. Both alternates offer subtle twists on their core characters. Watch "Crossover" for the hoot value; treasure it for the nuances. --Kayla Rigney

From the Back Cover:

After a difficult trip through the wormhole, Bashir (Shiddig El Fadil) and Kira (Nana Visitor) find themselves trapped in an alternate universe where the station is populated by sadistic duplicates of the crew. While Bashir is sentenced to manual labor with the other 'Terrans,' Kira convinces her counterpart to spare their lives and let her try to find a way back. Later, the 'Mirror' Garak (Andrew Robinson) approaches Kira with a dangerous plan to overthrow her counterpart, and tells her that Bashir will be killed if she does not comply. Now their only hope for escape is to convince the oppressed 'Terrans' to break their chains and revolt!
