    Just finished watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoW8Sq8-hr4. It introduces the concept that DSC might be part of Section 31(Click Here to learn more). What does everyone else think?

    I don't think so, mainly because Discovery and her actions are way, way too "in the open" to be something a bunch of shady characters like S31 would be up to.
    Seems to me S31 would be more likely to be sniffing around in the darker corners of the galaxy not flying round in a massive starship that seems to be quite well known.

    It took time for S31 to achieve that level of "status" I'm guessing. The federation is still young with war scenarios right now - and so is S31 along with it. It's very possible DSC probably is part of S31 - be it directly or indirectly. Seems for indirectly thus far though, but who knows, as story progresses it could shift towards a more direct involvement.

    I don't believe they are, at most Lorca is simply acting in a similar fashion. I believe he has a similar xenophobic view of the galaxy due to his PTSD.

    I think it might be Section 31 because it is developing new technologies to confront the Klingons. From the fact they were using a living creature to work the new warp drive seems like something they would do, not to mention its destructive powers as seen in the episode where they use it to save a colony. I think the officers just seem to be caught in the middle or are kept in the dark while the captain seems to know what's up.

    It could well be the begginnings of S31, and the klingon war is the deciding vote on whether the UFP needs a 'secret' division.

    Wouldn't they make it obvious that it's Section 31? Section 31 has always existed. Starfleet Charter, Article 14, Section 31, which allowed for extraordinary measures to be taken in times of extreme threat. (ENT: "Divergence")

    This is a very interesting concept and frankly, it would be nice to have a ship in section 31. Unfortunately, I feel that USS Discovery is not a section 31 vessel, for a starter several admirals have pointed out to the captain that it is the flagship of Star Fleet for the war, this would mean a lot of publicity and fame, and remember section 31 is only known by a VERY select few in Starfleet so I would say no, it is not, unfortunately, a section 31 starship.

    it is a shame because I would really like to see how a section 31 vessel would be run and how it would carry out its operations.
