The film will be produced by CBS Studios, Secret Hideout, and Roddenberry Entertainment, with Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth as executive producers.

Initially, Aaron Baiers, Bo Yeon Kim, and Erika Lippoldt were slated to be the series' co-executive producers. According to Kurtzman, Kim and Lippoldt would have been the showrunners. They were also the writers of the series' pilot episode. [11]

The series was announced on 14 January 2019. [12]

Kurtzman has said that the series "occupies an area of the Trek universe that's never really been explored geographically," and that it "has a new mythology to it." Speaking of Michelle Yeoh, Kurtzman said that the series would "put her character to the test in a way that Discovery can't," and compared it to the 1992 Western film Unforgiven. [13]

Originally conceived as a television series, the series entered pre-production in January 2020, under the working title "Wind Cleaver". It was due to start filming in May 2020, and was to have continued for seven months, concluding the first season's filming in November 2020. [14]

However, production was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. In August 2020, producer Alex Kurtzman said that writing for the Section 31 series had continued during the pandemic, with its writers' room meeting over Zoom. [15]

While discussions continued about the show in February 2021, [16] Kurtzman has said it is likely no new shows will be released until at least one of the existing shows has run its course. [17]

As of March 2023, the show remained in development. [18]

In April 2023, it was announced that the project would instead take the form of a special event movie rather than a TV series. [19]


On 12 December 2023, it was announced that production on the movie was scheduled to begin on 29 January 2024 and run through 13 March. [20] The cast of the film was revealed on 30 January as it entered production. [21]



In June 2019, Eaglemoss/Hero Collector's project manager Ben Robinson indicated that the company would manufacture starship miniatures from this series. [22]. They later went out of business in 2022.
