Star Trek: Section 31 Is Still Shrouded In Mystery

Lots of questions surround Emperor Georgiou’s next adventure

Star Trek: Section 31‘s logline that Emperor Philippa Georgiou “joins a secret division of Starfleet” and is “charged with protecting the Federation” while also facing “the sins of her past” still leaves numerous crucial questions unanswered. First is when in the Star Trek timeline Section 31 takes place after a dying Georgiou was sent away from Star Trek: Discovery’s 32nd century by the Guardian of Forever (Paul Guilfoyle) to save her life. Further, Georgiou was already a member of Section 31 in the 23rd century, and the Guardian of Forever also sent Phillipa back to the Mirror Universe to evaluate if she’d truly changed in Star Trek: Discovery season 3. How Section 31 will deepen Georgiou’s story remains to be seen.

Star Trek: Section 31 is potentially the first of a new line of made-for-Paramount+ Star Trek movies planned to be released every 2 years.

While it’s unknown who the 7 new actors joining the cast of Star Trek: Section 31 are playing, Georgiou potentially being surrounded by only new characters could be disappointing to fans. Section 31 has a sordid cast of characters who have been part of the black ops organization throughout Star Trek’s different eras. However, Alex Kurtzman calling Section 31 “a wild adventure across the Trek universe” may mean Star Trek legacy characters like Dr. Julian Bashir (Alexander Siddig) from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine or Ash Tyler (Shazad Latif) from Star Trek: Discovery could cameo in Section 31. Encouragingly, Michelle Yeoh believes in this project so much that she used her clout as an Oscar winner to ensure Star Trek: Section 31 happens, so it’s a safe bet Emperor Georgiou’s long-awaited return will be something special.
