In "Mirror, Mirror" Spock warns Sulu that if anything were to happen to him that "my operatives would avenge my death, and some of them are Vulcans." Prior to the airing of "In a Mirror, Darkly" several theories were put forth to explain how mirror universe Vulcans became what they were. The Best of Trek #14, ISBN 0451166469 suggests Surak died as an infant so that the Vulcans never adopted a way of logic and peace, and Diane Duane basically used this viewpoint in her novel Dark Mirror. The Mirror Universe Trilogy had Vulcan adopt Surak's teachings, but at First Contact with Earth advanced knowledge of the Borg threat caused both Earth and Vulcan to adopt a militaristic approach to space. The Mirror Universe Saga approach was similar, except the catalyst for the MU formation was Earth's losing the Romulan war and embarking on a path of conquest after overthrowing the Romulans a decade later, and the Vulcans followed Earth's lead.

In the collections Glass Empires and Obsidian Alliances, it is revealed that the Terran Empire saw telepathic species as a threat, and exterminated them. The mirror Vulcans therefore kept their abilities a secret. When Spock began his attempt to restructure the Empire, his followers used mind melds to spread his vision to all Vulcans. This vision, and the telepathic contact that supported it, endured when the Empire fell, and made the Vulcan slaves used by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance a vast spy network, biding its time.
