Totally Awesome. I liked the theme and all episodes were unique and very well done. I especially like the Enterprise episode that was two parts.

Some great episodes but very misleading title.

"I was excited when I saw they were finally making a dvd set consisting of all the Star Trek episodes featuring the alternate realities, and of course the first thing I think of is the "Mirror, Mirror" episode of Star Trek and all the subsequent episodes which carried on the evil universe story in Deep Space Nine. Problem is a lot of these episodes just don't belong... i mean The Inner Light?! How is that an alternate reality story? How is Frame of mind an alternate reality story? How about Turnabout intruder?! That doesn't make a lick of sense! Instead they should have included The DS9 episode "The Emperor's New Cloak" and some other Mirror universe episodes from DS9! I mean what the hell were the people who compiled this mess thinking?! You don't just pick out random episodes just because they kind of, sort of fit the premise! You pick appropriate ones and you cover as much of the given storyline as you can, otherwise what is the point?! Yeah, these are great episodes but the fact of the matter is you're not getting the complete story if you buy this set."
Not so bad...

"The latest in the "Collective" sets, Star Trek: Alternative Realities Collective brings fans 20 episodes, from all five series, with a few new special features at a great price- less than $30. The episodes are divided into four categories, which is a bit confusing given the way they're broken up and arranged.
Among five discs you'll find Mirror Universe (six episodes), Parallel Dimensions (two dimensions), Twisted Realities (four episodes), and Alternative Lives (eight episodes; and no, unfortunately these are not the "gay episodes"). Many of the included episodes fall into various top-ten lists among fan and critic favorites, although there are also a couple of episodes that fall flatly with a giant `clunk.'
Visually, this set falls in at about the same level as past Collective sets. The outer packaging is the same- sturdy paper with slimline cases- and each case has its own artwork both inside and out. Missing from this set is disk artwork- these simply include a listings of the disk's contents.
The navigation system is also similar to previous sets- basic and easy to use, but lacking any animation or music. There are no chapter/scene selection options for individual episodes. Episodes of The Original Series are all the remastered versions, which should make fans happy, as this is a first among the Collectives.
What the Special Features lack in quantity, they more than make up for in quality. Each of the four categories has its own set of special features, all of which include fantastic discussions of the episodes by Star Trek legends. Although a few of the interviews come from past box sets, most of the content is new, including insight from writers from Enterprise, Voyager, and SD9, Enterprise directors, and other experts from the ST universe. The featurettes are great for providing context into the episodes, but also for the behind-the-scenes glimpses into the making of the shows as well. Fans of audio commentary might be slightly disappointed; only one episode per disk includes that feature.
Unfortunately, as with past Collective sets, there's no behind-the-scenes footage, and no outtakes. Perhaps they're holding back for something to give us down the road..."
