Star Trek Mirror Universe: Glass Empires by David Mack, Greg Cox, Mike Sussman, Dayton Ward

There are moments glimpsed only in shadow, where darkness rules and evil incarnate thrives. You hope against hope that in your lifetime, evil is relegated to the shadows. But what if it wasn't?

What if you lived in a universe where your life was measured only by what you could do for the Empire? What would you do to survive? Would you sell your soul to free yourself? If you were offered the chance to rule, would you seize it? If you could free your universe from the darkness but only at the cost of your life, would you pay that price?

Star Trek: Enterprise® She seized power in a heartbeat, daring to place herself against all the overlords of the Empire. Empress Hoshi Sato knows the future that could be; now all she has to do is make sure it never happens. For her to rule, she must hold sway not only over the starship from the future but also over her warlords, the resistance, and her Andorian husband. As quickly and brutally as Hoshi seized power, imperial rule is taken from her. Her only chance to rule again is to ally herself with a lifelong foe, and an alien.

Star Trek® One man can change the future, but does he dare? Spock, intrigued by the vision of another universe's Federation, does what no Vulcan, no emperor, has ever done: seize power in one blinding stroke of mass murder. And at the same instant he gains imperial power, Spock sows the seeds for the Empire's downfall. Is this a form of Vulcan madness, or is it the coolly logical plan of a man who knows the price his universe must pay for its freedom?

Star Trek: The Next Generation® Humanity is a pitiful collection of enslaved, indentured, and abused peoples. No one dares to question the order, except at peril of their lives. One man survives by blinding himself to the misery around him. However, Jean-Luc Picard resists, just once. And in that one instant he unlocks a horror beyond the tyranny of the Alliance. Can a man so beaten down by a lifetime of oppression stop the destruction?

Very well written and a great book if you just want a distraction, however almost all of it directly conflicts with William Shatner's Mirror Universe Trilogy (Spectre, Dark Victory, and Preserver). It is debatable which story is 'true', but many trekkies (including myself) tend to agree that Shatner's story is 'correct'.

Writers of these books need to do their homework before writing them! When Gene Roddenberry was still alive, he reviewed each book and made sure that it matched 'Star Trek' history before it was published or added what he felt was appropriate. The guys who wrote this failed to note that the 'Mirror Universe' was created because of the movie 'First Contact' {this was determined by the 2 Spocks in 'NG' era reviewing both histories and tracing it back to then when the divergance started}, they make it sound like it existed before then. Mirror Kirk was an Emperor of the Empire. Not killed by Spock while still a Captain. Mirror Kirk and Spock did not die in their time-frame, they both survived to the 'Next Generation' Era. And more, if you read this book, treat it as real fiction, and not a continuation of the 'Star Trek' Legacy. Unless you consider this the creation of yet another Mirror or Dark Universe!
