Career
Final Assignment: Halkan Council
For the regular universe counterpart, see Tharn.

In the mirror universe, Tharn was the leader of the Halkan Council. In 2267, he met with a landing party from the ISS Enterprise led by James T. Kirk to discuss allowing the Terran Empire rights to mine dilithium on the planet Halka. On behalf of this people, Tharn refused to allow the Empire access, due to dilithium's destructive potential.

Once denied, the Enterprise had standing orders to obliterate the Halkans. However, Kirk's mirror counterpart, who had replaced that universe's Kirk, contacted Tharn and gave him twelve hours to reconsider. Tharn refused, telling Kirk that twelve thousand years would make no difference to his decision. When threatened, Tharn spoke of his entire race's willingness to die to maintain peace, and foretold the rising of other slave worlds against the tyrannical Empire. (TOS episode: "Mirror, Mirror")

Tharn was killed after the mirror universe's Kirk returned to the Enterprise and ordered the obliteration of Halka. (TOS novel: The Sorrows of Empire)

Mirror Universe Trilogy

In the trilogy of books written by William Shatner and Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, Spock successfully convinced Kirk to spare the Halkans, using the fiction that a secret alliance existed between the Halkans and the Klingons, so that if the Empire moved against that one planet it would give the Klingons an excuse to declare war. Kirk received honors for avoiding such a devious trap. Tharn's fate in that universe is unknown, but the Halkan homeworld did not fare well once the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance took over.

Affiliation: Halkan Council

In the mirror universe Tharn, like his counterpart in a parallel universe, was the leader of the Halkan Council.

In 2267, he informed the landing party from the ISS Enterprise that his people would not allow the Terran Empire to mine dilithium on their planet because they knew the Empire would use this resource to make war on other worlds. The ISS Enterprise was under orders from Starfleet to annihilate the Halkans immediately if they didn't grant these rights, but James T. Kirk, who had replaced his mirror counterpart due to a transporter accident, stalled for time and said the Halkans had twelve hours to reconsider. Tharn said twelve thousand years would make no difference; his people were prepared to die as a race if that was what it took to protest the Empire's policies. He also warned that one day all the Empire's subject worlds would revolt (TOS: "Mirror, Mirror").

Glass Empires

Tharn was killed when the mirror universe Kirk was returned to his universe and ordered the Halkan race be annihilated (TOS novel: The Sorrows of Empire}.

Mirror universe trilogy

Spock and Kirk convinced Starfleet that the Halkans were secretly allied with the Klingons, so that if the Empire moved against that one planet the Klingons would have an excuse to declare war. Kirk received honors for avoiding such a devious trap. Tharn's fate is unknown, but the Halkan homeworld didn't fare well once the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance took over (Shatnerverse).

Fan continuities

In The Final Days Spock obtained dilithium concessions from the Halkans in exchange for a promise to follow through on the other Kirk's urging, convincing them that they could be of more use as a role model for his reforms than as an extinct race. Tharn became Halka's representative in Spock's government, and died from natural causes before Spock was overthrown. Ironically Spock's government fell because of the influence the Halkans had (The Final Days, A Debt of Honor).
