- Author Bio
Following the blockbuster MIRROR BROKEN and THROUGH THE MIRROR storylines comes a brand-new Next Generation series, featuring untold tales of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D!
Following their clash with their villainous doubles from the Mirror Universe, the Enterprise crew returns to business as usual, little realizing the serpent in their midst—one of their own has been replaced! Six stories focusing on fan-favorite crew members of the Enterprise-D—including Deanna Troi, Wesley Crusher, and Selar—each connected by the machinations of this sinister doppelganger. What does Mirror Barclay want, and what’s to become of his Prime-universe counterpart?!
A pulse pounding mosaic of stories from Scott and David Tipton (Star Trek: The Next Generation - Mirror Broken) and artists Tony Shasteen (Star Trek: Boldly Go), Angel Hernandez (Star Trek/Green Lantern), and Carloes Nieto (Star Trek: The Next Generation - Through the Mirror).
This volume collects the six-issue series, continuing the saga of one of Star Trek’s most popular iterations. These standalone stories mirror the sci-fi mainstay’s established history of “done-in-one” episodes, which keep the series accessible to new fans and emphasize original and fascinating ideas.

“This series is a plus for Trekkies, and a solid run for any comics fan who has a foot in science fiction and stories revolving more around characterization and group dynamics rather than slugfests and powers.”—But Why Tho?
“With the mirror universe Barclay story still simmering in the background, this is another delicious serving of comfort food for Star Trek fans.”—ComicBook.com
“Star Trek: The Next Generation: Terra Incognita keeps getting better and better. If anyone asked me, ’which was the best Trek story for 2018?’, I’d probably point at Terra Incognita before anything else.”—Flickering Myth
