Order one to day!
almost as kewl as BLACK EFFING ALERT
That would be in GR's vision then.
I don't mind them. On the other hand looking cool will mean jack squat if the men wearing them turn out to belong to Section 31. Yawn.
As much as I enjoyed Section 31 on DS9 and its United Earth-era counterpart in ENT the second Kelvin timeline movie just left a sour taste in my mouth about the organization. Too much shit out in the open in broad daylight in the middle of San Francisco and in front of Starfleet officers, and a ridiculously-overblown black warship that would look ludicrous even by late 24th century standards. Peter Weller did the best he could with the material given him and I liked Admiral Marcus, but damn, that whole Section 31 subplot was just unnecessary and overshadowed even Khan, making both the main villain and the entire movie suffer as a result.
Section 31 does not exist.
Please refer to your citizen's handbook
It clearly states:
Nothing to see here.
Please move along.
I think, since they made a point to have the characters comment that they had never seen black badges before, that they were intentionally setting this up as a mystery.
Maybe it's the only regulation way for goth crew members to present?
Conformist fascist Starfleet douchebags. (*Takes drag off cigarette*)
Just wait until shit starts really going down and we hear
Dark light alert! Dark light alert!
Makes more sense to me than them being Section 31.
Set Unicorn and Dragon posters to psychedelic
So, Discovery is just the Alternative ship in the fleet?
Well there's all your existential "Am I mysterious" angst and black themed darkness explained.
I mean hell if I wouldn't still try and wear some of my skull rings and so on but it's nice to know they're trying.
oh yeah, also every time Cmdr Riker leaves the holodeck
BLACK LIGHT ALERT
I guess it's the Vengeance of the Prime timeline. Only a lot, LOT less stupid and much better-looking.
I feel like the holodeck under a black light after rikers been in there would be brighter than a thousand suns
Why do you think they called them protein resequencers?
Adds new meaning to the secret sauce in the replicated big mac
He liked it his way.
I thought the black badges were just for this one ship, to sort of unite the crew under their own emblem in doing all their weird and possibly unethical experiment stuff. i didn't think it had anything to do with section 31 and didn't think the badges existed anywhere outside discovery
But not everyone was wearing a black badge on Discovery, so I don't think it's a Discovery only thing. Probably just some sort of special ops team or something. I also doubt it's Section 31. I mean, those guys are supposed to never be tied to Starfleet. So, wearing a black Starfleet Delta kinda defeats that purpose.
