Re: Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--The Thirteenth Order

No insult intended, of course--that's just what was going through my head as a writer.

The historical reference was Article 58, something I became VERY familiar with while reading Aleksander Solzhenitsyn's books, The Gulag Archipelago. I know it's a bit of a sinister reference, but it seemed appropriate considering the Orwellian society we're dealing with. In fact, check out the exact sections Macet cites...
