Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge was always one of the good guys on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Playing the chief engineer of the Enterprise for seven years, LeVar Burton infused the character with kindness and charm. Overall, he was a good guy who was always ready to help anyone who needed it. No one could ever say that Geordi was out for his own best interests. But all that is different when Geordi appears in Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Mirror War from IDW Publishing, specifically, the comic book, Star Trek: The Mirror War: Geordi. This is a version of the character fans need to brace themselves for.
Screenrant provides complete details about Geordi’s seriously chilling character along with an image that would never remind any fan of the chief engineer we knew aboard the Enterprise. But that’s the whole point of the Mirror Universe. Everyone is the opposite in this world, with heroes becoming villains, and Geordi turns out to be one of the worst.
There are no likeable qualities in the Mirror Universe Geordi La Forge.
This Geordi had a hard young life where he was bullied and neglected by his parents which leads him to later kill them. Once he becomes an officer in the Empire, he has an affair with Gwen Liu, another officer working at the Utopia Planitia Shipyards. But Geordi’s not into love for the long haul as he sees Gwen more as competition and ends up betraying her to save himself. She’s eventually killed at the dilithium mines during a cave-in. And the Mirror Universe Geordi feels no remorse.
The Mirror Universe has created some compelling villains, but this comic takes a gentle soul like Geordi and turns him into a cold-hearted, unyielding weapon who will elminate anyone who stands in his way. Chilling is the only way to describe him.
