We have no clear evidence that Section 31 even has a chief or any kind of central authority.


I imagine Sloan telling any other agents he knows about, "Don't come after me."


Have you ever danced with a Tribble in the pale moonlight?

I love it when people don't question faster-than-light travel, or teleportation or anything like that, but then see some minor plot point and say "How could THAT have happened, that's not realistic!" lol

Section 31 knew Sloan was going to DS9, from which reporting should be easy if he was okay.  Miss two days in a row, and Section 31 would assume he was dead or incapacitated.  For that matter, I bet at the end Bashir filed  death certificate.


Did Bashir or other DS9 staff ever make knowledge of Section 31 and the genocide plot public?  I don't think they ever announced it, or if they did we never saw reaction by Starfleet or the public.


Several people have caused explosions on DS9... Kai Winn at the school, Garak at his shop, etc.  Somehow they didn't cause a breach between the Federation and its allies.  Destroying a lab wouldn't have either.

Sorry but your baseing your assumptions on facts not supported by facts.


Reporting from DS9 was not always "easy", even in the best of circumstances.Comunication were often a problem due to incompatible tech, wormhole interferance or other phenomnom.Not to mention that they were in the middle of a heated war. if he was okay.  Missing two days in a row wouldnt have raised an eyebrow.


BTW, Sloan was only out of touch for a few hours before he died.And I dont see an issue with Bashir possibly filing a death certificate.


Knowledge of Section 31 and the genocide plot did indeed go at lease "SIMI" public......it was mentioned in 2 of the last episodes that the Federation Council debated giving the cure to the Founders, but decided that doing so would strengthen their hand and might help the Dominion with the war.


So if the fedaration counsil know about the plot it stands to reason that so did the up-ityStarfleet brass.


And yes,like you said,several people have indeed caused explosions on DS9... Kai Winn at the school, Garak at his shop and others..............NONE of which were Fedaration citizens or oppitives.So its no wonder it caused no issues between the Federation and its allies.


On the other hand, a fedaration oppertive doing the same would certinly raised eyebrows with many.....as we have seen in the past.


Thanks for helping me prove my point.
