Didja Notice?

 

On page 2, mirror-Kirk kills the mirror-Mudd.

 

In the mirror universe, Khan prefers to go by his true chosen name, Singh; "khan" is actually a title in the Asian nations meaning "king".

 

On page 5, Mirror-Khan shows Kirk's landing party the S.S. Botany Bay, his people's plan to escape from Ceti Alpha V. The ship appears to be the original Botany Bay as seen in Khan's first appearance in the original series episode "Space Seed", but it has been augmented with four warp nacelles.

 

As the Botany Bay blasts off from Ceti Alpha V on page 10, Kirk refers to mirror-Khan having had a chokehold on him back on the surface. This occurred in "LiveEvil" Part 1.

 

This version of mirror-Sulu does not have the scar on his face that he had in the original series episode "Mirror, Mirror".

 

The planet Vulcan still exists in the mirror universe.

 

Apparently, the Terran Empire of the mirror universe terraforms all the more inhospitable planets it conquers in the mirror universe, as seen on the now lush and verdant Vulcan.
