The challenge has been cast. The gauntlet thrown down. Many have been called, few have answered. On the planet Hacknor... On Fire Island D, twelve brave contestants will compete. Who will falter? Who will thrive? Who will be
The contestants are led to a room that has a large one-way mirror for a wall.
Arifia: So what is this?
AOC: The challenge must be in there.
Captain Picard: It's not more sidekicks is it? That would be too evil.
Lights go on in the room and a device can be seen in the corner. A giant disk on the machinery starts spinning and glowing. Clearly it is a portal to another universe.
Magdelena: Is this to the...?
Jon: That's right, we have the dimensional portal to the Mirror Universe. Your challenge is to go confront your evil-- or good counterpart.
Professor Xavier: Isn't this rather dangerous? What is to prevent them from trying to take over our universe?
Jon: They won't, we've had all of the best scientists and technomages in the galaxy working on this thing. Anyone who comes through will be "tethered" to the device until he or she is sent back. In addition, the room itself is electro-magically sealed. There's no chance of anyone from that universe escaping into ours.
Henchman: That still sounds dangerous to me.
Jon: Don't worry about it, everything will be just fine. Simon and Randy will again be your judges for this round. Just remember the two guidelines. One, they cannot get out. And two, you are not allowed to team up with your mirror counterpart to take over our universe. Got it?
Gyrobo: Why's everyone looking at me?
