Discussion in 'Star Trek: Discovery' started by Dr. San Guinary, Aug 25, 2019.
So, there was no script at that point.
Well I never said there was a script. Just a story.
Maybe they can pack the Section 31 series with Pike Enterprise series? To make it a combination of Space adventure and Mission Impossible genre in one TV Series.
Please don't get Pike and the Enterprise involved in Section 31 (any more than it is because of Disc Season 2).
Could be fun. It would be nice to see different elements of Starfleet working together.
Pike's Enterprise and Section 31 could work as a miniseries, or even a season's arc in a show focusing on one or the other, but I don't see a multi-season show going on too long based around this tag-team.
I agree. They have said that the S31 series would come after season three of Discovery, there would have been no reason to make announcements about it. Picard is the main focus right now.
S31 wise, the writers have also mentioned on Twitter a couple of times that they're working on stuff for it.
Also, there's a video from Alex Kurtzman - talking about the updates to the Startrek.com site (it's not embedable so below is a link):
And here's an article from the site that has the printed text of what he says:
And some notable lines that lead me to believe the "Section 31" series is still in the works and on the near horizon:
(See the bolded and italicized part above)
(Again, see the bolded and italicized part above)
Now we know what THREE of these new shows are:
- Star Trek: Picard
- Star Trek Lower Decks (Animated)
- An as yet unnamed animated Star Trek show aimed at younger audiences for the Nickelodeon cable channel.
So, hmmm...given that Mr. Kurtzman mentions Michelle Yeoh (and that he 'loves' her work) - and further that the Section 31 show was announced as being in development; plus a Instagram post by Michelle Yeoh:
(scroll up to the top to see her initial post in that instagram thread)
Yes, she's talking about the filming on ST: D Season 3, but also includes the hashtag "#Section31"
I'd say chances are good the fourth new show "on the horizon" as Mr. Kurtzman puts it is:
- Star Trek: Section 31 (Starring Michelle Yeoh in the lead role).
But hey, time will tell.
I don't care. They can send Michelle Yeoh's character to the Flintstones/Jetsons Verse and I'll watch it. A bit of a fan.
I have the suspicion Michelle Yeoh prefers playing the bad grrl more than the Paragon.
Many actors prefer playing Villains because they often have more layers and require more acting ability to be done well. (For the actor they are often more fun to play.)
Hell, even from an audience perspective, I often find villains more entertaining than heroes. I think as a kid, I had more action figures of bad guys than good guys.
Who says Section 31 is going to take place in the 23rd Century?
If this "fall of the Federation" horseshit turns out to be true, there won't BE a Section 31 in the time frame in which Discovery ended up.
At this point, I literally want the characters in-universe to be aware of canon.
Tilly: "We found a way to recharge the time crystal and get back to our own time."
Burnham: "We can't do that. Canon dictates that this ship and its spore drive never existed."
Maybe they start the Temporal Cold War.
