Star Trek: Mirror Images Issues
Murderous intrigue continues aboard the I.S.S. Enterprise, as First Officer James T. Kirk sets in motion the machinations that will result in the murder of Captain Christopher Pike, and the ultimate prize for Kirk: the captain's chair! But what does Spock have to say about itand whose side is he on? A dark, twisted reflection of Starfleet history continues!
In the third chapter of this all-new Mirror Universe saga, we jump ahead to a never-before-seen period for the Mirror Universe: the waning days of the war between the Empire and the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. As the Empire's sphere of influence shrinks with every losing battle, we ship out with the ISS Starbreaker, where a young navigator, Lieutenant Jean-Luc Picard, is forced into command of his crippled vessel, and must figure out a way to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, or sparing that, at least keep himself and his remaining crewmates alive to fight another day.
The struggle for control of the I.S.S. Enterprise heats up! An already suspicious Captain Pike takes steps to snuff out Jim Kirk's mutinous plans permanently, sending his first officer on a dangerous suicide mission! Can Kirk fight his way out of Pike's plot, or has he been outwitted for the final time?
Final issue! Captain Pike has remained one step ahead of Kirk's machinations so far, but how long can his luck last? And has he lost an ally in Mr. Spock? And on what side is the Enterprise's hidden power player: Leonard McCoy? The final gambit in James T. Kirk's rise to power is played!
