It looks like Star Trek: Lower Decks will put its spin on Star Trek's iconic Mirror Universe in the upcoming eight-episode of its second season, "I, Excretus." The plot revolves around a Starfleet consultant running drills aboard the U.S.S. Cerritos, requiring the ship's senior staff and lower deckers to swap duties, turning the world on its head. These exercises intend to prepare the ship's crew for various scenarios, including a trip to the actual Mirror Universe, as teased in Lower Decks' mid-season trailer released on Star Trek Day. You can watch the preview of the episode below.
