The USS Defiant in orbit of mirror Earth

In the mirror universe, Earth was the capital world of the Terran Empire and later, for a brief time, the Terran Republic (ENT episode: "In a Mirror, Darkly"). In 2155 Earth suffered the worst attack in over a century, when rebels took advantage of the absence of the powerful warship Defiant, causing severe damage to Chicago, Mumbai, Paris, Beijing, Rio de Janeiro, Stalingrad and at the Empress' Palace in Kyoto (ENT novel: Age of the Empress). In 2295 with the fall of the Terran Republic Earth was occupied and humanity enslaved by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, ore processing centres were constructed on the planet, such as at the former location of the Picard vineyards (ST novel: Glass Empires).


After the defeat of the Empire by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, the mirror Earth was bombarded from orbit by Alliance warships destroying all inhabited areas and the planet's ecosphere. In the late 24th century Tiberius maintained a small base under the ruins of his old farm in Iowa. (TOS novel: Dark Victory)

Through a Glass, Darkly

Earth (mirror) as it appeared under Alliance rule

Earth was subjected to a Klingon planetary bombardment during the fall of the Terran Empire (circa 2297). The western half of North America was reduced to wasteland, Ireland and New Zealand were smashed into tiny islets, and the new continent of East Africa was created when a faultline cracked open. In the aftermath, Earth's cities were rebuilt by the Alliance as giant labor camps and factory complexes. Kolara (the former site of Paris) housed Alliance officials. At the center of each city stood enormous monuments which celebrated Alliance victories and rule. Every Terran was required by edicts to bow before any monument they passed; failure to do so resulted in execution.

Alliance mining efforts on Earth stripped away most of the planet's mineral wealth. Officials also sent ships filled with sickly "Earthers" throughout the Alliance to perform the most dangerous or degrading of tasks. Rumors persisted that hidden deep in the Earth's crust or ocean beds were secret data archives housing the vast array of knowledge and scientific wealth accumulated by Imperial Starfleet in the glory days of the Terran Empire. The fact that Terran slaves were sometimes found in possession of valuable equipment, or that Starfleet computers seemed purged of data prior to the conquest of Earth, only served to validate the rumors.

The Terrans did not take the occupation of their planet lightly. In 2370, a group of unidentifed Terrans detonated an explosive in the headquaters of the Alliance at Kolara. The blast killed several hundred Cardassians, Klingons, and Bajorans. News of the attack spread quickly through Terran dormitories across the planet, leading many to speculate that an underground rebellion had begun to emerge on Earth. (ST roleplay module: Through a Glass, Darkly)

Dark Mirror

In the Dark Mirror continuity Earth continued to serve as the Imperial capital into the 24th century. (TOS novel: Dark Mirror)

Surface: Moderate

Earth in the mirror universe was the center and capital of the Terran Empire, with a history different from the primary universe's Earth.

One historical difference arose in 2063, when Zefram Cochrane made first contact with the Vulcans. His colleagues attacked the Vulcans and stole their technology. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly")

The Terran Empire was in existence for centuries by 2155. ("In a Mirror, Darkly")

The Klingon-Cardassian Alliance conquered the Empire sometime prior to 2370. (DS9: "Crossover")

Earth's fate under this regime was never established in any canon episodes or movies.

Fan fiction

  • In Star Trek: Mirror Wars, Earth was the location of the Battle at Mirror Earth.
  • According to William Shatner's novel Spectre, Alliance ships destroyed the Imperial fleet in their version of the Battle of Wolf 359, and proceeded to reduce mirror-Earth to a barren wasteland, vaporizing the Great Lakes and other landlocked bodies of water. The Alliance enslaved Terrans.
  • Star Trek: New Empire: Earth was similarly ravaged in this continuity, though not rendered entirely lifeless. Criminals, pirates, miners and various aliens used the barren Earth as a base of operations for different purposes in the late 24th century. Between 2375 and 2385, Stephen April attempted to rejuvenate Earth using a Genesis device, with apparent failure; however, by 2407, Terrans had begun to re-colonize their world.
