As this quote implies, Section 31 is as a group merely named themselves after a section of Article 14 of the Starfleet charter. "Section 31" does not refer to some kind of organisation unit but is simply a name.
That said, obviously there are other subgroups of Starfleet. Prominent examples are Starfleet Corps of Engineers or Starfleet Medical.
At this point there appear to be no plans to release a TV-PG version of Star Trek Discovery. The showrunner makes it clear that the "tonality" and "totality" of the show rely on a more adult theming than previous Star Trek shows.
It is TV-MA because it is rated for that which is most potentially challenging for a family. We are pretty ...
Okay, as spoiler-free as possible:
The Red Angel is a mysterious entity or phenomenon witnessed by Starfleet in various locations around the galaxy. It was given its name by a person who had also seen it many years in the past.
Season 2 of the series is largely about the search for the nature of the Red Angel.
As the comments have pointed out, this link ...
The other 30 sections, (and possibly sections with numbers greater than 31) are in Article 14 of the Starfleet Charter, i.e. they are all (including section 31) passages of text. As far as we know, only section 31 gave rise to an organisation. The organisation chose to name itself after the section in the Charter.
All the sections are passages of text. We ...
It is most probably the only covert unit with the title: "Section"
Terry J. Erdmann, one of the authors/publicists who helped to create the marketing campaigns of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, and also co-authored Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, mentioned Section 31 in his book "Star Trek 101: A Practical Guide to Who, What, Where, and Why". He ...
While not technically a "release", VidAngel is an online service that allows users to connect to a number of streaming services that they already subscribe to* and filter out types of objectionable content (e.g. language, violence, sex, disturbing scenes) that they wish to avoid in shows they want to watch.
The service lists Star Trek: Discovery as one of ...
The conclusion of the 2nd Season of Discovery shows that all reference to the USS Discovery, its missions, personnel and technology are expunged from the record of the Federation.
In Universe this extends to the very existence of the crew as historical fact. Spock appears not to have a step-sister, rather than having one that died or disappears in some other ...
This was addressed in an interview with Discovery showrunner Aaron Harberts.
Q: Why is Michael Burnham’s name… Michael?
All right, so here we go. We've worked on a number of Bryan Fuller shows… Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies. Many of his female protagonists have typically what you would call male names. Chuck was one. Jaye was another. When we all sat down, ...
Harcourt Fenton Mudd first appeared in Star Trek: The Original Series (TOS) and Star Trek: The Animated Series (TAS).
In Mudd's Women" 13 October 1966, Mudd posed as Leo Francis Walsh, but his true identity was exposed during a formal hearing:
SPOCK: State your correct name for the record.
MUDD: Harry Mudd.
I haven't tracked down the exact scene, but multiple secondary sources claim that Michael was born in 2226, and that this was revealed in "The Butcher's Knife Cares Not For The Lamb's Cry."
The initial scene of Star Trek (2009) where the timeline splits occurs in 2233. So Michael would already have been seven years old.
That is, unless the timeline split ...
The average cost per episode of STD is around $8-8.5m. Taking the average cost of an episode, doubling it because it was a feature-length two-parter and taking into account that it was the season finale, the total cost of production was likely around $20-25m(ish)
Like a big sci-fi feature, “Discovery” hasn’t been cheap: The average episode costs $8 million-$...
Voyager, S3: E26
Leonardo da Vinci's hologram exclaims "Che cazzo". "Cazzo" is the strongest, grossest word that can be used in Italian to refer to a penis. Can't think of any stronger profanity, aside from directly cursing God.
The Short Trek entitled "The Trouble With Edward", which aired after S2 of Discovery, reveals that prior to genetic tampering by a Starfleet science officer over the course of that episode, Tribbles had a much slower reproductive cycle.
So it may just be that during S2 of Discovery, genetically modified tribbles had not yet been created; another possibility ...
If I am to believe this article she's probably an alien from the Short Trek short "Runaway":
The first Short Trek premiered in October of 2018 and followed a day in the life of Ensign Tilly. She has a frustrating conversation with her very overbearing mother that stokes her own self-doubt about joining the command program. Then, while eating alone in the ...
The question mainly revolves around how it is possible to get breathable atmosphere into sections contained by a force field. You assume that air vents are needed for that, therefore you ask where they are located, but I think that this assumption is not correct.
There are different types of force fields
Thoughout the canon, we see that there are loads and ...
There's several reasons
The Federation doesn't seem keen on using General Order 24. Like General Order 7, it wasn't used very often. Kirk uses it the only other time in canon in A Taste of Armageddon
KIRK: All that it means is that I won't be around for the destruction. You heard me give General Order Twenty Four. That means in two hours the Enterprise ...
The lead character for Star Trek: Discovery was originally named "LCDR Rainsford" and it was decided that she would only ever be called "Number One" in honor of the First Lieutenant on Captain Pike's Enterprise, who had no name in the original series.
In an interview with Denofgeeks.com Sonequa Martin-Green reveals there are three reasons driving the ...
There is no short answer to this question, here is a full account of what is known within the Star Trek universe about the Illyrian-born human Starfleet officer:
The name of the Star Trek character seen in Star Trek:Discovery as well as Star Trek: The Original Series has long been controversial however in Star Trek: Short Takes episode Q&A her official ...
The following two profanities occur in Star Trek: Picard Season 1, episode 2, "Maps and Legends"
Since they are both spoken in anger, they can be considered stronger than the "fucking cool" reference from Discovery
Note: while the closed captions say fuckers, the Irish actor actually says feckers. YMMV on whether that's equivalent and how strong a ...
Apparently the Klingons of Season 1 were shaving their heads in preparation for war. Seriously, that's all we get. From Season 2 Point of Light
BURNHAM: I heard, postwar, the Klingons are growing their hair again.
TYLER: The rumors are true.
Out-of-universe, fans really weren't digging the bald Klingons
But one of the show’s most divisive changes turned ...
By the point Mudd made it to the bridge, he had full control over the critical computer systems aboard Discovery, and being the drama queen he was and already planning to kill Lorca, could have easily programmed the computer to recognize that hand signal as an order to beam Lorca off the bow.
In TNG Episode 2x03 Elementary, Dear Data, Captain Jean-Luc Picard is heard saying
which is the French word for Shit.
Besides being a curse, it is not just a gratuitous one: fitting with the acculturated background of Picard, this swear also has an historical significance.
This word was, in fact, reported to be exclamated by Pierre Cambronne, a ...
In both DS9 S01E17 The Forsaken and TNG S02E11 Contagion, we see downloaded data that manages to operate as a program without being deliberately run.
As such, it would seem that the "recently acquired data" contains-or-is a computer program of sorts, which seeks to preserve itself and is now running on Discovery's computer system.
That said, it should be ...
The Federation depends on the Terran Empire
In "The War Without, The War Within" (DIS 1x14), deposed Emperor Philippa Georgiou gave Starfleet advice on how to win the war against the Klingons, based on the Terran Empire's successful conquest of Qo'noS in the Mirror Universe. Using this advice, Starfleet brought the war to a swift end on good terms for the ...
I found a video that goes over this in detail
The point he makes in the video is that, regardless of era or universe, we see phasers emit in both pulses and streams.
Most people expect phasers to look like this
The list of places they appear like this is... well, it's long
NCC-0514 (USS Kelvin)
