Yep, he told them about the 'zombie cyborg army' that had tried to keep him from launching, and all Earth space development was Military-focused from then on.

It was a pretty obscure part of that book even (mostly it was the 2 Spocks just trying to figure out the point the universes 'diverged' in a side story) so its not surprising that the Ent writers chose to make Mirror Earth more cutthroat pre-First Contact.
