We read this out loud and it was an entertaining piece. But more so, from a story perspective, the way Number One and Pike interact here clearly shows that the two of them are really there only for them. Even though Pike let's Kirk show his stuff here, it's clear who's in command.
I'm interested to see how Kirk manages to get the Enterprise later on, when Pike is in command.
Author's Response: Yeah--Pike gave his best girl a present :) And I do want to write more AOS Mirror!Kirk one of these days.

Quite an interesting MU tale you have told here.
Author's Response: It's part of a series, so it may make more sense in context? But yeah--I figure that the ISS Enterprise reflects her captain, and Pike is a VERY different captain than the Prime Mirror Universe's Kirk.
