Commander Spock (2267)
|Affiliation:|| Terran Empire|
|Other relatives:||Solkar (great-grandfather)|
|Previous Assignment:|| First officer and captain, ISS Enterprise|
Grand Admiral of the Imperial Starfleet
|Office Held:||Consul of the Terran Republic (2293-2295)|
|Previous Offices:||Emperor of the Terran Empire (2277-2293)|
In the mirror universe, Spock (2230-2295) was a half-Vulcan, half-Terran male who lived during the 23rd century. In 2249, he decided to enter the Imperial Starfleet of the Terran Empire and eventually rose to the positions of captain of the ISS Enterprise in 2267 and the Grand Admiral of the Imperial Starfleet in 2277. He later served as the last Emperor of the Terran Empire from 2277 to 2293 and the first and only Consul of the Terran Republic from 2293 to 2295.
Spock never wanted to have command forced upon him, so when James T. Kirk assassinated Christopher Pike and assumed command of the Enterprise in 2264, Spock supported him. Kirk and Spock served many campaigns together and become allies.
After negotiations failed, Kirk, McCoy, Scott, and Uhura, beamed back to the Enterprise. However, due to magnetic storm interference they were transposed with their primary universe counterparts from the USS Enterprise.
James T. Kirk delayed the destruction of Halka, but Spock was ordered by Command to ensure that Kirk carries out his orders in 12 hours, or Spock was to kill Kirk and assume command, but was the only man with the decency to warn Kirk. Eventually Spock and Marlena Moreau learned that the landing party wasn't their own team, but counterparts from another universe, and they help the landing party return home. Before beaming out Kirk urged Spock to use his influence to try to bring civilization to the barbaric alternate universe. Spock answered simply, "Captain Kirk, I shall consider it." (TOS episode: "Mirror, Mirror").
As Kirk predicted, Spock later on became the captain of the Enterprise. Spock used the ship as a power base to accumulate influence, and eventually rose to become leader of the Terran Empire. He instituted major reforms, turning the Empire into a more peaceful and less aggressive power. Unfortunately, Spock's reforms left the Empire unprepared to fight the united Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, who conquered the entire Terran Empire, enslaving the Terrans themselves as well as the Vulcans. (DS9 episode: "Crossover")
In this version of the mirror universe, Spock was unable to convince Kirk to spare the Halkans, and watched stoically as a grinning Kirk condemned them to death. Days after the crossover event, Spock entered Kirk's quarters and strangled him, snapping his neck for a coup de grace to ensure Kirk was not tricking him. Marlena Moreau became his captain's woman, then his wife, as Spock assumed command of the Enterprise. He purged the crew of Kirk loyalists, including Security Chief Hikaru Sulu. Wielding the Tantalus field to frightening effect, Spock gained a reputation in the Imperial Starfleet for being able to kill with a thought (as the Tantalus power was theorized to be some kind of Vulcan psionics), having wiped out the entire crew of a Klingon battlecruiser and later a Romulan bird-of-prey without trace. Only Grand Admiral Garth of Izar was able to correctly guess the truth behind Spock's powers, shortly before he himself "disappeared." Enemies both within the Empire and aboard his own ship suffered the same fate, earning him the attention of the Empress, Hoshi Sato III.
With his father Ambassador Sarek as his chief political advisor, Spock begins cultivating alliances, including uniting Elas and Troyius by marriage between Elaan, the Dohlman of Elas, and Hakil, the Caliph of Troyius, and gaining access to their rich dilithium reserves - a deal made not with the Empire, but with Spock himself.
By 2269, Spock was promoted to admiral, and became the Grand Admiral of the Imperial Starfleet after the assassination of Matthew Decker on the bridge of his flagship, the ISS Constellation in 2277. That year, a decade after slaying Kirk and gaining control of the Enterprise, Spock became Emperor of the Terran Empire after killing Empress Sato III in the throne room of the Kyoto Imperial Palace.
Emperor Spock's reign lasted nearly two decades, during which time he carried out his plans - to hasten the demise of the Empire. In 2293, Spock declared the formation of the Terran Republic and was elected its first and only Consul. In 2295, the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance laid siege to Earth and killed both Spock and Marlena. (TOS - Mirror Universe novel: The Sorrows of Empire)
In 2371, the archaeologist for hire Jean-Luc Picard wondered how history would have turned out if Kirk had killed Spock instead of the other way around. (TNG - Mirror Universe novel: The Worst of Both Worlds)
In 2375, T'Lara showed holovids of Spock slaying the Empress to Keiko Ishikawa. By the 2370s, most believed the Terran Republic fell because of Spock's weakness as a leader, although some remained dedicated to imposing his reforms. (TNG - Mirror Universe novel: The Worst of Both Worlds, DS9 - Mirror Universe novel: Saturn's Children)
The Memory Omega project that Spock instituted in the last years of his reign would bear fruit. In 2378, after more than eight decades of enslavement by the Alliance, the Galactic Commonwealth was established, fully realizing Spock's vision for a free, democratic state risen from the ashes of despotism. (ST - Mirror Universe novel: Rise Like Lions)
The Mirror Universe Saga UniverseEdit
In this reality Spock ignored Kirk's advice and continued to serve aboard the ISS Enterprise as first officer under Captain Kirk.
In 2286, the ISS Enterprise managed to cross-over into the primary universe as the vanguard of an invasion force. After attacking Starbase 13 and the USS Courageous, they then encountered the USS Excelsior, under the command of Captain Styles. Using their advanced weaponry and technology, the Excelsior began to cause the Enterprise to flee, but when Spock discovers the Klingon Bird of Prey in tow behind Excelsior, Kirk has Spock tap into the Bird of Prey's computer controls, and Spock activates the Bird of Prey's weapons which they fire point blank at Excelsior, disabling the vessel and allowing the Enterprise crew to board and capture Excelsior, which was also carrying the former crew of the USS Enterprise back to Earth.
After Kirk and Spock examine Excelsior's computer banks, and finding that the Federation had completed one working model of the Genesis Device and that the Genesis effect regenerated Spock's counterpart, Kirk sends Spock (along with Sulu and Chekov) to Vulcan aboard the stolen Klingon Bird-of-Prey. Upon arrival on Vulcan, Spock encounters Sarek and T'Lar, who are astounded to see Spock. Spock mentions to Sarek that in Spock's universe, he couldn't prevent Sarek's death at the hands of the Empire. Spock then neck pinches Sarek into unconsciousness. When T'Lar begins to speak to Spock, she is stunned by Sulu, who is then reprimanded by Spock, who tells Sulu that the elder would have posed no threat to Spock. Just then, Amanda comes outside and when Spock begins to speak to her, as she approaches Spock, Sulu stuns her as well. This angers Spock and he tells Sulu that he is fortunate that Amanda is not permanently harmed. Spock then applies Sulu's agonizer and orders Chekov to repeat the process when Sulu awakens. Spock carries Amanda inside, then he walks over to his counterpart. Spock then begins a mind meld to see if his counterpart is capable of travel, and then Spock reaches up and melds with his counterpart as the meld becomes a battle to overcome each other. During the meld, the primary Spock manages to restore his fractured mind using the mirror Spock's ordered mind as a template, and the mirror Spock was freed of an irrational hatred of his counterpart and all he stood for and he was then ready to help save the primary universe and join David Marcus's resistance movement against the Empire. (TOS comic collection: The Mirror Universe Saga)
In this incarnation of the mirror universe, Spock followed Kirk's advice. He did not kill Kirk, but was transferred off the Enterprise. Spock became a power at Starfleet Command, rising to the admiralty while arguing for reforms before he had been set up on treason charges. He was executed in 2279, some twelve years after the transporter accident. The Terran Empire continued into the 24th century and attempted to invade the primary universe in 2367. (TNG novel: Dark Mirror)
In this incarnation of the mirror universe, Spock was reported killed fighting the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance in the Mutara sector. Spock's Shrine was erected on Vulcan: a sphere balanced on a tiny fulcrum (ST duology: Dark Passions).
Mirror Universe TrilogyEdit
In this incarnation of the mirror universe, Intendant Spock related to Kirk that he spent ten years following the transporter accident planning his rise to power. After overthrowing Tiberius in 2277, he abolished the title of emperor and instituted reforms allowing each of the occupied worlds to select a representative on the newly-formed Imperial Senate. The Senate met for the first time ten months later and elected Spock to a five-year term as the Empire's Commander-in-Chief because of the reforms he proposed.
However, the Terran Empire he had helped form was destroyed in the Battle of Wolf 359 at the hands of the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance that was formed by Tiberius. Spock fled underground and became the Intendant of the Vulcan Resistance. At some point, he had a daughter with Saavik called T'Val and dispatched her in an attempt to recruit the aid of the James T. Kirk of the primary universe. After making contact, his resistance cell was given aid by Project Sign and the mirror Spock was cured of his Bendii syndrome which had no cure in his universe. He later returned to his reality to continue the fight for freedom against the Alliance. (ST novels: Spectre, Dark Victory, Preserver)
In an alternate mirror universe, Captain Spock is commanding officer of the ISS Enterprise. In 2258, Spock lead the final assault against the Klingon Empire and ordered Sulu to execute Chancellor Gorkon.
Following the victory, crew members of the Enterprise, including Chekov, Sulu and Spock's lover Uhura, betray Spock and join Commander Kirk on the newly captured Narada. While Kirk is boasting about ruling the new Terran Empire, Uhura secretly beams Spock off the Enterprise shortly before Kirk orders it to be destroyed, giving the impression that he had killed Spock.
Spock later frees a captured Spock Prime from the Narada, and with the help of Uhura, beams to the surface of Vulcan in order to stop Kirk from killing the Vulcan elders, with his plan to wipe out the planet with red matter from Spock Prime's ship. Spock shoots Kirk in the back with a phaser and decides to remain on Vulcan, along with Spock Prime, in order to keep the alliance between Vulcan and the Terran Empire intact. (TOS comic: "Mirrored")
