ISS Enterprise
Class: Template:ShipClass
Registry: NCC-1701
Owner: Terran Empire
Operator: Starfleet
Status: Active (2267)
For the prime universe counterpart, please see USS Enterprise (NCC-1701).

The ISS Enterprise (NCC-1701) was a Terran Template:ShipClass battle cruiser that was in service to Starfleet in the mid-23rd century. She was the second Imperial starship to be named Enterprise, her predecessor having been destroyed in 2155. (TOS: "Mirror, Mirror"; ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly")

Sometime prior to 2267, James T. Kirk took command of the Enterprise through the assassination of Captain Christopher Pike. Kirk then ended the Gorlan uprising by taking the ship to the rebel homeworld and destroyed the planet. Shortly afterward the Enterprise visited Vega IX, where Kirk had 5,000 colonists executed.

In 2267, the Enterprise was on a mission to the Halkan homeworld to secure the Halkan's submission to the Empire, in the form of mining rights to the dilithium crystals on the planet. With the Halkan refusal, the landing party consisting of Kirk, CMO Leonard McCoy, Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott, and communications officer Nyota Uhura were transported back to the ship through an Ion storm that was in the area. The landing party that rematerialized was from another Enterprise in a parallel universe.

The Federation Template:ShipClass heavy cruiser USS Enterprise was almost identical in configuration to the ISS Enterprise of the 2260s, bearing the same registry, NCC-1701. However, many minute details distinguished it, such as the lack of the dagger emblem of the Empire painted on the doors, and agony booths to keep the crew in line. The use of armed soldiers in the corridors and agonizers was also unheard of. (TOS: "Mirror, Mirror")

Background information

ISS Enterprise, Mirror Mirror, remastered
Profile of remastered revisions

The producers wanted to show the ISS Enterprise flying from right to left rather than the normal left-to-right motion of the regular version. However, the Enterprise model was only built to be filmed from one side, as the other housed supports and wires and was not detailed. The effects crew ended up using a shot where the registry decals had been redone in reverse, and "mirroring" the film (reversing it) after the model was shot.

The 2006 "remastered" version of "Mirror, Mirror" featured a new, computer-generated version of the ISS Enterprise. While generally faithful to the original, the new version featured correct ISS markings and a darker, gunmetal gray hull coloration.

As depicted in the Star Trek: Mirror Universe novel The Sorrows of Empire, Spock murdered the mirror Kirk and thereby assumed the captaincy of the ISS Enterprise almost immediately after the events of "Mirror, Mirror". He was ultimately succeeded as captain by the mirror universe counterparts of Kevin Riley (in 2277) and Saavik (in 2287). Whereas its primary universe counterpart was destroyed in 2285 as shown in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, the ISS Enterprise survived until the conquest of the Terran Republic, the successor state of the Terran Empire, by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance in 2295.
