|James Tiberius Kirk|
|The mirror Kirk|
|Affiliation:||Terran Empire, Starfleet|
|uniform normally worn by James T. Kirk (mirror)|
Kirk rose to power by assassinating Enterprise captain Christopher Pike and subsequently carrying out various brutal acts of violence against his and the Empire's enemies, like executing thousands of colonists at Vega IX. He also stole the Tantalus field, a weapon capable of vaporizing enemies from distance, which he used to help his rise to power.
In 2267, mirror Kirk and his "normal" universe counterpart were swapped in a transporter accident, so unique that the duo, when rematerialized, even wore their counterparts' uniform. Spock, the Enterprise's first officer, discovered Kirk was in fact a duplicate and imprisoned him to return him to the correct universe. (TOS: "Mirror, Mirror")
Upon traveling to the mirror universe in 2370, Deep Space 9 personnel Kira Nerys and Julian Bashir discovered the mirror Kirk had been overthrown by the mirror Spock, who had gained control of Kirk's Tantalus field and persuaded Kirk's woman Moreau to help him change the Empire for the better. (DS9: "Crossover")
"The Final Days" ContinuityEdit
In this continuity, Spock was forced to get rid of Kirk in self-defense because he realized Kirk intended to have him killed. ("The Final Days")
