Some of you may have heard of Section 31 already. For those who haven't, we'll get into that next time!

Oldarmourer: A Section 31 is like a Section 8 except they let you wander around on your own unsupervised sometimes ;)

BrickVoid: This might be a little tricky, but perhaps T'Zel could be asked to consider the impact of the knowledge she has and weigh up keeping it secret against the consequences that would unfold if she did not disclose it?
09/13/21 10:15 PM
BrickVoid: I wonder if T'Zel had considered the logic behind the possibility that withholding information about the fact that the Tajarans are on their way to Wogglenather with the intent to start a war could cause unforseen problems that even calling it classified under Section 31 wouldn't be sufficient for her to not divulge the information?

BrickVoid: Okay, it came up, finally. I think it has to do with the time zone and delays between certain caches that refresh on a regular basis. Probably my ISP's end, if I had to guess. But to digress, yes, Section 31, the section that Starfleet will deny any knowledge of or of the existence of! :D

Swiftbow: It is up... Try Shift + Refresh?

Brickvoid: Hmm, shouldn't there be a comic up now? I forget when these comics get posted. Anyway, I'll see it when I see it, I guess! :D

Panel 1
Narration: Shortly thereafter...
Doctor T'Zel: ...It is quite unfortunate that we were unable to relay more information to you in time.
    But we are all relieved that you managed to drive the enemy off.
Commander Dale Zurkett: Not without a cost. We have twenty-four casualties.
T'Zel: Nor for us. A hundred souls did not escape the Shadowburn.
Commodore Jeffrey Bannister: But I understand your commander is still aboard the Tajaran flagship?
T'Zel: With our command staff, yes. To the best of my knowledge.

Panel 2:
Dale: You still didn't say how the Colonel was able to dock with the Slug.
    How were they not detected?
Lt. Commander Natashia Starrat: And it's curious... your rank structure is not standard Starfleet.

Panel 3:
T'Zel: I'm sorry. That information is classified.
Jeff: Classified? I'm a Starfleet Commodore. I authorize the release to this group.
T'Zel: Your authority does not extend to my organization, Commodore.
    I do offer my sincere apologies. But I am under oath and binding non-disclosure agreements.

Panel 4:
Dale: Of course... That shady-looking guy that came over to my house after Wogglenather...
T'Zel: Yes. I heard they attempted to recruit you. I was... disappointed you declined.
Dale: Section 31.
Jeff: Wow, Section 31...
    What is that?
