In the mirror universe created by Nero's temporal incursion, James T. Kirk (2233-2258) was a 23rd century Terran officer in the Imperial Starfleet who was First officer of the ISS Enterprise in the 2250s. In 2258, Kirk mutinied against Captain Spock when he took control of the Narada.
Early life (2233-2255)Edit
Born on January 4, 2233, James T. Kirk was the son of George and Winona Kirk. He was born in space, aboard a medical shuttlecraft from the ISS Kelvin, just moments before his father's death. He was named after his maternal grandfather (James), and his paternal grandfather (Tiberius).
Service aboard the ISS EnterpriseEdit
As Captain Spock was fighting on Qo'noS, Kirk was sent to take Praxis. Kirk was successful in doing so. He then took a strike squad with him to Rura Penthe. At Rura Penthe, after executing Nero's crew, Kirk found Nero. He then killed Nero with his bare hands. Kirk along with Dr. McCoy and Commander Scott took control of the Narada.
Kirk then returned to the Enterprise telling Captain Spock of how everything has changed till it's too late. At that moment, he beamed most of his compatriots aboard the Narada, including Lieutenant Uhura. Kirk then told Spock that the empire has tolerated the alliance between Vulcan long enough, that it was time to remake it as a truly human empire. Despite pleas from Uhura, Kirk ordered Spock and the Enterprise to be destroyed. He then set a course to Vulcan. (TOS comic: "Mirrored, Part 1")
Chekov informs Kirk, that the ship's database suggests that the anomaly detected the day Kirk's father died is about to reappear. Kirk decides to intercept whatever comes through the anomaly, as Nero was planning to do. Kirk contacts Senator Pike in San Francisco, telling him that Spock was planning a Vulcan revolt against the Terran Empire and that the ISS Enterprise and Spock were destroyed. Kirk declares his intention to take the Narada to Vulcan to remind the Vulcans that the Terrans are their masters. Pike demands that Kirk return to Earth and not act without orders from the Imperium, but Kirk retorts, "I am the Imperium."
At the anomaly coordinates, the Jellyfish emerges from the wormhole; Sulu captures it in the Narada's tractor beam. Spock Prime emerges from the Jellyfish and is taken prisoner. Under interrogation by Kirk, Sulu and Uhura, Spock Prime realizes that this is the mirror universe. He tells Kirk and the others that he comes from an alternate reality where there is no empire, but that he has encountered the Empire's reality before. Kirk asks if the red matter aboard the Jellyfish is a weapon; Spock Prime tells him that it was meant to stop a supernova in his reality. Scotty pages Kirk to tell him that he has figured out how the red matter works. Kirk leaves Spock Prime in Uhura's custody.
The Narada arrives at Vulcan and begins to drill into the planet's surface. Kirk confronts the Vulcan elders in the katric ark, telling them that Vulcan will be destroyed. Suddenly, the seismic tremors cease. Kirk attempts to contact Scotty, but is answered by Uhura, who has killed Scotty and taken command of the Narada. Spock Prime appears in the katric ark and appeals to the "good man" inside Kirk, without success. As Kirk is about to kill Spock Prime, Spock appears and shoots Kirk dead from behind. Spock expresses regret at the necessity of killing. (TOS comic: "Mirrored, Part 2")
