|STAR TREK MIRROR UNIVERSE:
The Sorrows of Empire
By: David Mack
"In every revolution, there's one
man with a vision."
Captain James T. Kirk of the United Federation of Planets spoke those prophetic
words to Commander Spock of the Terran Empire, hoping to inspire change.
He could not have imagined the impact his counsel would have.
Armed with a secret weapon of terrifying power and a vision of the alternate
universe's nobel Federation, Spock seizes control of the Terran Empire and
commits it to the greatest gamble in its history: democratic reform.
Rivals within the empire try to stop him; enemies outside unite to destroy
Only a few people suspect the shocking truth: Spock is knowingly arranging
his empire's downfall. But why? Have the burdens of imperial
rule driven him mad? Or is this the coldly logical scheme of a man
who realizes that freedom must always be paid for in blood?
Spock alone knows that the fall of the empire will be the catalyst for a
political chain reaction - one that will alter the fate of his universe forever.
I love Mirror-Universe stories!
"Mirror, Mirror" is one of my favourite episodes from
the original series so it's great to finally see someone
continue that story. David Mack does a fine job with
plot and characterizations and I really enjoyed the story.
