The Mirror Universe is a dark and twisted reflection of our own, where all that is noble and compassionate is instead cruel and barbaric. Now our universe has been invaded by that other reality's most feared tyrant: the dreaded Emperor Tiberius, the Mirror Universe counterpart of James T. Kirk. Just as Kirk survived his own era to live into the 24th century, so has Tiberius returned from the past to menace a new generation of Starfleet heroes.
And only Kirk can stop him.
With Spock, McCoy, and Spotty at his side, and teamed Jean-Luc Picard and the valiant crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E, Kirk is propelled into his most personal and dangerous mission yet as he fights to uncover the secret of Tiberius' return and learn the terrible truth behind the madman's nightmarish plans for the Federation.
But how can he defeat an enemy who knows Kirk's mind as well as he knows his own?

Excerpt from Dark Victory by William Shatner
The waiting was over...
"Ten," the emperor said.
It was the number of seconds James T. Kirk had to live.
Behind him on the mirror Voyager's bridge, Kathryn Janeway lunged for the conn. Kirk knew her well enough to understand her intention.
Once, it would have been his as well.
Kirk turned from the viewscreen, from the man in the mirror, and shouted at the Voyager's captain. "No!"
Spock, following his captain's lead, now pushed ahead, one hand extended, fingers ready to remove Janeway from the equation of this moment.
But he was blocked by T'Val, the young, drawn Vulcan woman who haunted him, the ghost of a possibility unexplored, child of his mirror counterpart and the mirror Saavik. The follower of Janeway.
T'Val's mechanized hand swung up to divert Spock's attack. Janeway reached the controls. Kirk felt the ship's warp-core generator sing its song in the vibration of the deck.
The stunning blow of T'Val's mechanized hand swept Spock to the side. Then T'Val joined her leader.
"Seven." Tiberius laughed mockingly, seeing everything, the chaos that he had brought.
Kirk leaned over the central flight-control console, to reach the controls on the captain's side, then gasped with pain as the ruins of his hands strained but did nothing.
Hours ago, transtator feedback had destroyed the controls of the runabout he had piloted. He had kept the craft on course, completed his mission, but had paid the price in charred flesh, shattered bones, now wrapped in McCoy's glittering bandages.
Kirk called for help from the one person left to give it. "Teilani!"
