Section 31 Annual Conference (Part One)
Guest Poster: Agent Luthor Sloan
I'm heading for the Section 31 Annual Conference on...well, I can't possibly say, as it is a secret. As the group is an unknown, supposedly non-existant Intelligence unit operating within Starfleet, we can't advertise ourselves too freely.
This didn't work out too well at last year's Conference. Things were so secret, none of the members knew about the occasion, and as a result, no one turned up.
We at Section 31 like to move Starfleet policy to suit ourselves. We answer to no one and place members in high places so that we can manipulate things to our own devices. Spoilsports like Jean-Luc Picard are always trying to upset the applecart.
Anyway I've landed on...woops! Nearly said it then! Just accept it's a quiet, out of the way planet away from normal starship lines.
Agent V walks up to see me.
"Director Sloan." he says, "Glad to see you. It seems that the members have received notice through the proper channels this time. It looks like a full house for your speech."
"Excellent." I say, "I'm not going to talk to myself like last year."
He smiles and motions two young women behind him to step forward.
"Director." he announces, "Allow me to present our two newest recruits to Section 31. This is Agent J"
I nearly fall back when I see her blonde hair and piercing eyes.
"I'm so pleased to meet you, Director Sloan." she purrs seductively, "I've always been an admirer of you methods."
"....and this is Agent K." V informs me.
Agent K has long brunette hair tumbling over her shoulders; she also has stunning eyes that bore right into me.
"Director Sloan." she says softly, "It was because of you I joined Section 31. You do such wonderful work."
My legs begin to wobble. If we could have those two one recruiting posters, people would be joining in droves. It's too bad a secret intelligence force cannot have a recruitment poster.
"Errr....call me Luthor." I say to both of them, "I'm sure you'll make excellent agents and make a fine impression."
I know they did on me!
Agent V tells me that the hall is ready, and the agents are waiting for me to address them.
I hope that Agents J or K are not near the front otherwise I might get distracted....yes I WOULD get distracted!
I get my speech ready and enter the hall..
To be continued.....
