Summary

For three full decades, on television and in film, actor William Shatner has portrayed one of the legendary heroes of science fiction: James Tiberius Kirk, captain of the "Starship Enterprise™ ." Although Kirk was believed to have perished at the conclusion of Star Trek(R) Generations™, his amazing literary resurrection led to an acclaimed trilogy of national bestsellers, "The Ashes of Eden, The Return," and "Avenger."

Now William Shatner again brings his unique blend of talents as actor, writer, director, and producer to continue the thrilling new trilogy that began in "Spectre," as Jim Kirk must confront the most dangerous enemy of his career -- "himself."

The Mirror Universe is a dark and twisted reflection of our own, where humans and Vulcans live as slaves to a brutal alliance of Klingons and Cardassians -- an alliance long believed to be the creation of one man: the feared and hated Emperor Tiberius, the Mirror Universe counterpart of James T. Kirk. But just as Kirk survived his own age to live in the era of a new generation of heroes, so Tiberius now returns to fulfill his mad dreams of total domination -- no
