** UnbuiltTrope: This story helped to popularize the MirrorUniverse trope, but showed that the universes weren't really that different as the later Mirror Universe episodes on ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' would show them to be. Even though his mirror counterpart had a BeardOfEvil, Spock was, as the show put it, "A man of honor in both universes", [[AntiVillain and not strictly evil in the mirror universe]] despite clearly being on the side of the angels in the primary reality. Also, the Aliens of the Week, the Halkans, were {{Actual Pacifist}}s in both the 'real' universe and in the Mirror Universe.

* FanService: Of both [[MrFanservice male]] and [[MsFanservice female]] varieties. Most notable are Uhura and Marlena in their [[TheissTitillationTheory barely there]] uniforms, but '60s Shatner had some nice arms.

to:

* ExactWords: Captain Kirk tricks Marlena by saying things that are perfectly accurate descriptions of his plans, but are vague enough that Marlena interprets them to mean that he's got an EvilPlan going on.

Added DiffLines:

* SureLetsGoWithThat: Marlena suspects that Kirk's unusual behavior is part of a scheme to gain rank and power. Kirk plays along with a [[ExactWords technically true]] [[SarcasticConfession statement of his intentions]] that Marlena [[DoubleMeaning interprets to mean]] that he's planning to take over the Empire.

* GilliganCut: Bones and Kirk worry about what havoc their evil counterparts are wreaking in their universe. Turns out Spock had them figured out right away and tossed them in the brig.

Finally finding a moment to take refuge alone, our four man crew [[HuddlePower attempt to figure out what happened]]. They reason that an ion storm around the planet distrupted the transporter and sent them to a MirrorUniverse by accident, swapping them with their own counterparts from this universe. They make a plan to return home, replicating the unique situation that brought them here. But until then they will need to [[FishOutOfWater try and blend in]] as best they can. As for the unsettling thought of what their counterparts are doing, it turns out that Spock back in their own dimension has it under control; their barbaric character was immediately obvious to him and he had them hauled to the brig right away.

* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: This is the only time in both the series and the original movies that Scotty calls Captain Kirk "Jim", when he begs him not to stay behind to operate the transporter.
