Dukat assassination attempt

Dukat lays injured after an assassination attempt

Assassination was the act of murdering an important individual for political or ideological purposes. Those who carried out assassinations were known as assassins, who may have been in the employ of a government or other group, or operated independently for hire.

Assassination was common in the mirror universe. In 2267, when Captain James T. Kirk, accidentally transported to that universe, refused to fire on the Halkans for denying the Terran Empire dilithium, Ensign Pavel Chekov attempted to assassinate him. He stated that nobody would question the assassination of a captain who had disobeyed prime orders of the Empire. Later, researching the history of that universe, Kirk discovered that his counterpart had advanced to the command of the ISS Enterprise by assassinating Captain Christopher Pike.
