We haven't heard anything about the Star Trek series around Section 31, which was announced some time ago. But episode 5 of the third season of Star Trek: Discovery could have already ushered in the series.
Danger! Here are spoilers!
In the fifth episode of Season 3 of the Star Trek: Discovery series, Phillipa Georgiou, former ruler of the Terran Empire in the Mirror Universe, met the mysterious Kovich, who met her at Starfleet headquarters for a "debriefing". We know from this conversation that Starfleet apparently still has contact with the Mirror Universe, because it was known that the Terran Empire fell. Kovich also seems to be an expert on the Terran Empire and knows quite a bit about Georgiou. The conversation seems to have had more of an impact on the ex-Empress. But why?
Trekkies have put forward a few theories:
- Kovich may have headed Section 31 and recruited Phillipa Georgiou. That would make sense because the new Star Trek series is about this secret service.
- Kovich may be the Federation President and find Phillipa Georgiou's appearance from the Mirror Universe alarming. Or he hopes to gain access to the mirror universe because he is looking for something there.
- Kovich could have come from the Mirror Universe himself. He wears glasses, which could be an indication that his eyes are not used to the brightness in the "regular" universe, as was the case with Captain Lorca in Season 1 of Star Trek: Discovery. Maybe he wants to return to the mirror universe or is planning an invasion and hopes for help from Phillipa Georgiou.
In any case, it should be very exciting to see how the story of Phillipa Georgiou continues in the third season of Star Trek: Discovery.
