The Civic Court sees both criminal and civil cases. Criminal cases are generally limited to what would be termed misdemeanors in other empires, though not all misdemeanors are seen by the Civic Court. The Civic Court mainly hears non-violent crimes that do not lead to loss or damage of property, such as owning an unlicensed weapon, violating a traffic ordinance, failure to acquire necessary permits, trespassing, and the like.
However, these powers also essentially give it broad-ranging powers of law-making, though in practice it rarely makes any laws on its own accord. This power is vital because it restricts the ability of an individual to upset the status quo of the empire too severely, regardless of their standing, while also allowing those of high position to wield extensive influence. In effect, it serves to allow emperors (and to a lesser extent the heirs and Holders) to make edicts and decrees that hold personal interest to them without forcing subsequent emperors to abide by them by dint of the Scriptures.
The Mirror Universe is the setting of several narratives in the Star Trek science fiction franchise, a parallel universe existing alongside, but separate from, the fictional universe that is the main setting of Star Trek. It resembles the main Star Trek universe, but is populated by more violent and opportunistic doppelgängers of its people. The Mirror Universe has been visited in one episode of Star Trek: The Original Series, five episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, a two-part episode of Star Trek: Enterprise, a storyline woven through the first season of Star Trek: Discovery (continuing with a Mirror Universe character in the main cast of seasons 2 and 3), and several non-canon Star Trek tie-in works. It is named after "Mirror, Mirror", the Original Series episode in which it first appeared.
The characters in the Mirror Universe are aggressive, mistrustful and opportunistic in personality. Whereas the Star Trek universe depicts an optimistic future in which the Earth-based United Federation of Planets values peace, co-operation and exploration, episodes set in the Mirror Universe feature the human-dominated authoritarian Terran Empire which values war, despotism and conquest instead. Humans in the Mirror Universe are typically referred to as "Terrans".
The Mirror Universe was later revisited in the Deep Space Nine second-season episode "Crossover", and turned into a story arc that spanned into the final season, with five Mirror Universe episodes over the course of five seasons. The series reveals that when exposed to individuals from the normal universe, the Terran Empire began to reform itself for the better, but was overthrown in the 23rd century by an alliance of alien species who took advantage of the Empire's self-weakening and conquered it, enslaving humans and Vulcans in the process.
The concept of a morally inverted universe had been pioneered by DC Comics in 1964, three years before Star Trek adopted the idea, in the Justice League of America story "Crisis on Earth-Three" written by Gardner Fox.The Mirror Universe Saga is a trade paperback that reprints eight issues of DC Comics' Star Trek comic book (issues #9-16) chronicling an encounter between the Mirror Universe and the Prime Universe. It is set immediately after the events of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The series was written by Mike W. Barr and drawn by Tom Sutton & Ricardo Villagrán. This version postulates the divergence of history to start at the time of the Earth-Romulan War, with the conquest of Earth by the Romulans; after Earth's liberation, the resistance became an empire-building government.

When Thanos attacked Xandar, despite the Nova Empire's best efforts, they were defeated and destroyed and Thanos acquired the Power Stone and wiped out half of Xandar's population as part of his goal to balance the universe.
The Gem Homeworld, or simply Homeworld, is the home planet of the Gem race and presumed capital of the Gems' intergalactic empire. It was initially mentioned in "Mirror Gem", and officially debuted in "The Trial".
Little is known about the Gem Homeworld and its previous history, culture, and society. What is known, however, is that Homeworld used to be a totalitarian, oligarchical society governed by the Great Diamond Authority. In this society, the Diamonds ruled over Gemkind, which consisted of a variety of Gems, each assigned a different role based on their Gem-type according to the Caste System that was implemented. For instance, Pearls were servants and considered to be lower-ranking Gems, while the Diamonds were the highest-ranking Gems. The higher up on the Caste System a Gem was, the more privileges and responsibilities they had. Deviation from a Gems' given purpose resulted in punishment, which could sometimes escalate to shattering (the destruction of a Gem).The goal of the Gem race was to expand the Diamonds' "perfection" across the universe by traveling to other planets and establishing colonies. As noted in "It Could've Been Great", once suitable planets were located, they were exploited through facilities known as Kindergartens (which drains a planet's resources to create new Gems) and are terraformed to be made fit for Gem settlements. Any organic life living on a colonized planet would be killed since the process of creating new Gems completely strips a planet of its lifeforce, making the world unsuitable for new life to form. Once a colony is completely drained of its resources, they were typically abandoned and left as husks of their former selves.
Homeworld was a warlike, inhumane society bent on spreading Gems across the universe at any cost, including wiping out organic life. They simply did not care about non-Gem life forms, seeing them as inferior. The Gems came to Earth for the reasons of building a colony and later destroying it after the Rebellion.
After the events of "Change Your Mind", the Diamonds realized the error of their ways thanks to Steven, and completely dismantled Gem society. Realizing that their previous ways of ruling Gemkind were immoral, the Diamonds first disposed of the Caste System so that all Gems are equal; any Gem is free to live the life they want without fear of persecution and punishment. Next, the Diamonds dismantled their armies and ceased colonization of other planets. Finally, Gems are now free to live wherever they please in the universe; Homeworld, Gem colonies, Earth, or anywhere else. Although the Diamonds are still the leaders of the Gem race, they are much more lenient with their ruling and now wish to spread peace and love across space.
The Necromonger Empire is a religious empire and its members whom constitute one of the four elder races, zealously and violently follow and propagate its religion Necroism. An absolutely fanatic group that believes life is antagonistic to the natural state of the universe. They intend to convert or kill all who oppose them.
The Necromongers believe that each 'verse has its own god, that life is antagonistic to the natural order of the universe and must be purged from it to be reborn in the Underverse. The Underverse is their promised land, believing that unless a person dies "in due time" that they will not go to the Underverse.
The troops of the empire are particularly effective, they view death as honorable, and are unable to feel pain. The warriors do not believe in clean armor, believing that the more damage you show, the greater the warrior you are.
Quickly dissension arose, Covu an important scientist-philosopher began teaching the then radical belief that there might be more than one God indeed, that there might be as many Gods as there were "universes"!

The Terran Empire was a repressive interstellar government dominated by the Terrans from Earth, locally named Terra by the 23rd century, in the mirror universe. The Empire ruled by terror, its Imperial Starfleet acting as its iron fist. In the Imperial Starfleet, officers often promoted themselves by killing superiors that did not follow the rules of the Empire. Torture was a common form of interrogation and discipline. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly"; TOS: "Mirror, Mirror")
Humanity's first contact with an alien species in the mirror universe began exactly as it did in the traditional universe. Upon detecting Zefram Cochrane's warp signature, the Vulcan scout ship T'Plana-Hath landed in Bozeman, Montana, to make first contact with Humanity. Instead of welcoming the Vulcans in a spirit of friendship and understanding, the mirror Cochrane killed the first Vulcan to set foot on Terran soil with a shotgun, as the he and his fellow Terrans boarded and ransacked the Vulcan ship after killing the first officer also. According to mirror Archer, the Vulcan first contact was considered a prelude to invasion. 2b1af7f3a8
