Star Trek: Section 31: Disavowed by David Mack
Amoral, shrouded in secrecy, and answerable to no one, Section 31 is the mysterious covert operations division of Starfleet, a rogue shadow group committed to safeguarding the Federation at any cost. Doctor Julian Bashir sacrificed his career for a chance to infiltrate Section 31 and destroy it from within. Now it’s asking him to help it stop the Breen from stealing a dangerous new technology from the Mirror Universe—one that could give the Breen control over the galaxy. It’s a mission Bashir can’t refuse—but is it really the shot he’s been waiting for? Or is it a trap from which even his genetically enhanced intellect can’t escape?
Following the events in The Fall miniseries, Bashir has been forced to resign from Starfleet and is living with the Andorians. When Section 31 approaches him to help with an important mission, Bashir decides to take them up on the offer in order to take them down from the inside out.
Disavowed is first in a new series that centers on a favorite of mine – Section 31. The majority of the story takes place in the Mirror Universe, as the Breen try to steal technology. Full of adventure and intrigue (what makes Section 31 so great), this first installment is a must-read for serious Star Trek fans. It’s fast-paced and impossible to put down. I enjoyed a prior Mirror Universe storyline that got a gripping continuation as well. Events build to an exciting ending that left me wanting more. I hope to see more in this series soon.
