Star Trek: Section 31

In April 2023, Paramount announced Star Trek: Section 31… for the second time! The project was originally announced in 2019 to coincide with Discovery’s second season, but it failed to get off the ground and ended up spending the next four years stuck in “development hell.”

The project has been reworked from a series into a kind of TV movie for Paramount Plus, though no release date has been announced as of yet. I doubt we’ll see it before 2025, but watch this space! Between now and when the film premieres I’ll do my best to discuss any major news and give my thoughts on teasers and trailers.


Here you can find all of my articles previewing Section 31 – including pieces I wrote about the earlier series concept.
