Re: Star Trek: Section 31: Disavowed - Dec. 2014?

As I noted upthread, it is too early for me to reveal any details. Until the outline is approved, I won't say exactly when it's set, or to what other works it's connected.

I also won't release a larger version of that placeholder cover. It's just something I made for my site, and I don't want a larger version propagating around the internet and possibly confusing the issue as to which is the "real cover" when S&S finally commissions something.

Also, colour me amazed that the Mission Impossible movie series didn't spawn a tie-in book series for the franchise in some form. I'd have thought it was a no-brainer for Pocket...
Preferably where Jim Phelps returns and kills Ethan Hunt, because HUNT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE MOLE DAMNIT

still hurts man

My take on the first M:I movie is that Voight's character was some impersonator wearing a Jim Phelps mask.

It's the only logical explanation.

The Mission Impossible movie series with Tom Cruse is set in an alternate universe. There is no way that Phelps would do what he did.

Mission Impossible 2 was nice enough to point out that it is possible.

Hi David, I understand. Very much looking forward!

Agreed. This is why I skipped those movies.

If the next instalment remedies that situation, I may reconsider.

But we digress (for fun)...

Re: Star Trek: Section 31: Disavowed - Dec. 2014?

Actually I think that the original M:I represented many parallel universes. That's the only way the IMF team could show their faces on national or global TV one week and yet be anonymous enough to go undercover against next week. It's the only way there could be such a huge number of anonymous countries and assorted People's Republics within the finite area of Eastern Europe. And it would explain how, in later seasons when the focus shifted to stateside mob-busting, "the Syndicate" was always just as strong a threat every week no matter how many times they struck a decisive blow against its leaders. Plus there were the '88 revival episodes that were remakes of original episodes.

All I know is: PLEASE, Mr. Mack, let it be a tale without a straw-man twist of the kind that so deeply tarnished the old miniseries for me--where 31 was so often ridiculously simplified into bumbling villains with no proposed validity whatsoever. Straw men do not make for dark, soul-searching angst of the kind that made the original DS9 arcs with the Bureau so much more compelling....

(To be fair, I'd say they were handled pretty well in A Time To Kill/Heal.)

BTW...on the subject of the M:I movies--who's stupid idea WAS it, anyway, to make the hero of the series turn out to be a card-carrying villain-traitor? I can't believe the usually-superb Brian De Palma was responsible for that....

That placeholder cover still looks a lot better than some of the more recent Photoshop covers.
