What would be the explanation for the higher command chair
(better noticable in the screencap from "Mirror, Mirror")?
Does the Lexington
happen to be Starfleet's flagship (which the Enterprise
is apparently in the mirror universe) or does the extra piece making the command chair higher constitute the "flag" a flag officer transfers to the command ship (most likely a piece of inventory every starship has onboard, I'm not suggesting that Wesley carried it with him
