Trek executive producer Rick Berman today provided brief spoilers of several upcoming Star Trek: Enterprise episodes.
"We're going to touch a little bit on Section 31, which has not been dealt with in a long time," Rick Berman told the Sci-Fi Wire. Section 31 was first introduced in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as a covert intelligence branch of Starfleet, whose director, Luther Sloan, tried several times to recruit Dr. Julian Bashir into his organisation.
Besides DS9, Enterprise will also be revisiting several Original Series issues, particularly in the upcoming Klingon forehead arc of "Affliction" and "Divergence," and in the mirror universe episodes. But Berman also revealed a new episode called "Bound," which will feature another race first seen in the Original Series. "[The episode] deals with three Orion slave girls who come aboard Enterprise and wreak a bit of havoc. It's a really fun episode."
Finally, Berman talked about several concepts unique to Enterprise that will be focused on in the remainder of the season. "We're going to touch on certain elements of the Augment experiments that Dr. Soong had done. We'll see the launch of the Columbia, the next starship."
