    From the New York Times bestselling author David Mack comes an original, thrilling Section 31 novel set in the Star Trek: The Next Generation universe!

    No law…no conscience…no mercy. Amoral, shrouded in secrecy, and answering to no one, Section 31 is the mysterious covert operations division of Starfleet, a rogue shadow group pledged to defend the Federation at any cost. The discovery of a two-hundred-year-old secret gives Doctor Julian Bashir his best chance yet to expose and destroy the illegal spy organization. But his foes won’t go down without a fight, and his mission to protect the Federation he loves just end up triggering its destruction. Only one thing is for certain: this time, the price of victory will be paid with Bashir’s dearest blood.

    No doubt we'll see the entrance to Section 31 HQ: a stairwell behind a false elevator door, leading to a corridor blocked by a series of four heavy metal doors, ending in an elevator disguised as a phone booth.

    Would you believe the sequel will be titled Section 31: KAOS?
    Would you believe Section 31: ZOWIE? ("Repeat after me: I am not a pleasure unit.")

    It has been a delight watching you all guess wrong when you try to figure out who Control is, or what the story's about. Man, I hope y'all don't hate the book.

    The book's being released in ten days, you really want him to even hint towards spoiling what's probably a big reveal when you'll know for yourself anyway in a couple weeks? :p

    At this stage, The Prisoner jokes are about as original as Get Smart jokes. :p

    Or Kukalaka. An alien masquerading as a stuffed bear to spy on Bashir :) Although Kukalaka didn't necessarily survive the destruction of DS9.

    Not much hint potential here. Next you are going to speculate that Bashir is the head of 31?
