Despite fair backlash against the concept, Section 31's logo is pretty stellar

Section 31 isn't the thing to glamorize but Star Trek fans should at least appreciate it's awesome logo.

Star Trek: Section 31 is on the verge of debuting. The movie is likely going to get an early 2025 release date, marking the first Star Trek film that will ever debut on a streaming platform. Right now it's set for to air on Paramount+, but should the platform fold or merge in the coming months, it'll likely be sold off to a competitor like Netflix, who already picked up the rights to Star Trek: Prodigy.

The Section 31 film has not been the most welcomed by the fandom, ever since the concept was announced. The concept is that it'll follow Michelle Yoeh's Philippa Georgiou as she heads up the organization known as Section 31, Star Trek's clandestine operation, and an arm of the federation that isn't exactly known for its morality. It's a concept that really came to life on Deep Space Nine and has long been seen as an idea that series creator Gene Roddenberry wouldn't be a fan of. Roddenberry wanted the Federation to be seen as the good guys.

Section 31 really slaps that idea in the face and challenges the Federations altruism. Up until now, Section 31 has distinctly been used as antagonists for the likes of Benjamin Sisko, Jean-Luc Picard and others, but the new film will flip the concept on its head, giving us reasons to cheer on the organization famed for torturing its own allies.

So, fans aren't overly excited about the concept, and that's fair. That said, the logo that leaked last week really did give us one cool thing so far; the logo for the film. Thanks to Screenrant, you can take a look at the photo here.

The look is streamlined, giving the lettering a nice dynamic look, albeit a bit blocky. But it's juxtaposed to the Federation Delta symbol and the lettering underneath of it. It's a nice, sleek look that falls in line with other logo concepts we've seen in recent years from the studio that makes Trek.

While we can debate the quality or the purpose of something like Section 31, we can't deny that they're trying their best to hit it out of the park.
