    It's probably been 20 years since I read it but I remember liking it.
    I always kind of hated that DS9 destroyed the terran empire
    I realize Kirk's dialog to Spock set it in motion but I still don't like it

    There are many permutations of the mirror universe, at least two with a living, breathing Terran Empire. They even retain the cool yellow hull markings! (TNG novel: Q & A; Star Trek Online)

    ^ IIRC, one of the Sisko Emissaries in Fearful Symmetry was from a universe where the Terran Empire never fell, too. (Could be the same one as either the Dark Mirror or Q & A version, of course...)

    That existed alongside the belief that the Empire's forces were becoming too spread out to be able to enforce Imperial rule throughout. The two factors were both ones Picard was thinking of.

    In Q & A we do know that Will Riker doesn't make it to 2380, as Lore assassinates Riker (I forget the reason for Data not appearing in "Dark Mirror", but if Soong did not exist or did not create androids in the DM MU, then Q & A's Terran Empire is from a completely different MU).
