    Did The Burn occur in that universe as well? Or has everything flipped and the Terran Empire became an actual peace-loving United Federation of Planets? Booker is not a courier, but captain of the Starship Enterprise? Zareh is President of the UFP?

    That parasitic ice is actually mutualistic and in exchange for sticking to everything, it produces tasty ice cream and delicious popsicles?

    The reason for the Burn would have to be determined first. If it was deliberately done, then it’s doubtful that the same thing happened in the Mirror Universe. If it was natural, then it’s possible. But I would guess that the Empire would have found a better way to fly if they wanted to keep their subjugated planets under control.

    Terran Empire, at least as canon goes, didn´t exist since late 23rd century.

    my idea about the mirror universe:

    The mirror universe we saw on TOS and DS9 is a thing, the mirror universe we saw on DIS is a different universe, created by the TOS Defiant going back in time in a different universe.

    Remember, though, the Terran rebellion that Alt Sisko and Smiley ignited was gaining ground. If the Terrans won, the Empire could easily have been reinstated, as bad as or worse than before.

    Best case scenario for the AU was that the Terrans and the K/C alliance would pummel each other into submission, allowing the Ferengi (who were pretty decent in that reality) to take over.

    They could take a page from one of the comics and have MU Khan who was banned from Earth for being too peaceful. His ship isn't discovered until much later and he emerges and works to salvage the MU after said pummeling.

    In the Mirror Universe the Burn ushered in a new golden age and they're currently enjoying a blissful utopia in which the Terran Empire has been restored as guardians of peace and justice. But they still eat Kelpians, who actually enter the abattoir voluntarily like the Meal of the Day from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

    Sounds like Star Wars of the Lambs.

    I like the way you guys think. Which says disturbing things about me, I guess.
