Many have mentioned Section 31, but don't you think that's one of those things that JJ in his non-Trekness would think is way too fannish for his setting?
It would take too much time away from exploding planets and ship-swallowing black holes to explain what Section 31 is to the mostly non-Trek schooled audience.
Orci could potentially
be smart enough to use something like Section 31, but I'm afraid JJ would likely axe such a thing.
