In fact, it almost has a timeline of its own as rich as the prime reality of Trek itself. So if you've been confused by all the Mirror-verse happenings in Discovery - and why wouldn't you be? - we're here to help put it all together.

Do you remember back in the '90s, when high-definition TVs first started to become popular? Seeing that HD for the first time, the sharpness seemed almost impossible compared to existing technology. But this year, several top tech companies showed off 8K screens with 16-times as many pixels as those old 1080p HD TVs.

Ah, Discovery. This might be the best exploration one of these episodes has ever done in encapsulating just how miserable the Mirror Universe really is. Like, we all joke about goatees and the agony booth, but the idea's existed for so long it's almost been kitschy. Not any more.

Mulder and Scully's intimate dance at the end of "The Post-Modern Prometheus" represents an important development in their relationship on The X-Files. It's one of the first times we see them be so tender with each other, laying the groundwork for their eventual relationship. And according to Chris Carter, it came out of nowhere.

Television has always looked to the silver screen for inspiration. With more room for characters to breathe, and a bigger canvas to take plots on expansive tangents, the television versions of movie classic often exceed the vision of the original filmmakers.

Here are the top nine television shows based on films.

Remember when surfing the web was a treat? A delicacy almost. You'd fire up the whatever-kilobaud modem and start the pay-per-minute meter running and read about politics on Salon or whatever. A fun time. That's no longer the case, and I'm honestly rotting from overexposure to the online.

Despite what all the holiday specials try to tell you, it's pointless to pretend that Christmas has become anything other than commercialism's annual time to shine. So why not just embrace the spirit of spending completely, and build yourself a tiny working television Christmas tree ornament that streams '90s commercials from YouTube?
