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

Maybe someone with better eyesight can answer this, if there is in fact an answer - who's being disavowed on the cover?

Precisely. … And yes, I have been watching a lot of classic Mission: Impossible on Netflix lately….
Well, that's a guaranteed sale here...

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...
Start pitching it to them

Cool news. I wonder if Section 31 being in Star Trek Into Darkness is a reason or if the novel has always been on the slate.

^ I doubt that STID has anything to do with this, because 1) it's a prime-timeline novel, and 2) due to Bad Robot dictates, Abramsverse novels are not allowed. So this can't have much of anything to do with STID.

I think he maybe meant that because it had been a plot point in STID, it was being used as something that is recognizable to people who had seen the film... current popularity and all that jazz. But I may be wrong.

Seems pretty clever to pitch this right after STID featured Section 31 in a big way.

Although I would not presume to speak for David Mack, I do get the impression that he pitched a Section 31 story because it's a story he wanted to tell and their presence in STID in no way influenced the decision. But I do not presume to speak for David Mack.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to attack Mr. Mack's artistic integrity in any way. If anything, my theory was that he likely has a lot of ideas for stories he would like to tell, and identified favorable circumstances for pitching one of them, and hopefully the powers that be will agree with them, and then everyone can work to publish something they believe in artistically and commercially.

Plus I think his writing style and sensibilities make an excellent fit for a Section 31 novel.

That Abramsverse novels are not allowed doesn't matter for this premise though. You only need to believe that people who have seen STID remember "Section 31" from the movie and recognize it when they see it on a digital or physical bookshelf and it piques their interest. It's a brand awareness thing, and STID furthered the viability of the "Section 31" brand by featuring it.

Honestly, I don't know what to think in this issue any more. In the comments section of that article, number 111 is actually from Orci saying "Nothing to do with it. Would’ve liked to read the novels myself, but I may have had to resist!"

But then there must be some reason why no novels in the Abramsverse are being done. Hell, even if they fear such novels are getting in the way of developing the movies, there are other alternatives, like novel prequels. Yeah, I know, IDW has comic prequels for both movies, but I think there could have been a way to do separate stories. For example, with XI, stick with Countdown as the comic prequel exploring Nero's origins, and then for the novel prequel do an adventure on the Kelvin or something. Not quite sure how they could have done this for STID though.

Hey, Mr. Mack--anything you can reveal, at this date?
Nope, not a single thing. Even the cover image on my website is a red herring.

Would be a neat cover if it was real though!
