LEVELS (OF SECTION ONE)
Section One consists of numerous levels (at least twenty). We know that data anomalies are analyzed on Level 2. Reprogramming is located on Level 3. Medical is on Level 4, and as electronic listening devices are not installed on that level, it's where Nikita and Michael (and others) usually go to talk without fear of being recorded. Level 5 is mentioned in "Getting Out Of Reverse," but what goes on there is not explained. Level 6 (in "Third Party Ripoff") is where operatives have their workstations and where they remain during close quarter standby; this is the level to which Michael is relegated after losing his Level 1 office. Walter and Nikita suspect Section has a genetics lab on Level 8 in "Imitation of Death." But Level 17 contains the cryostatis lab seen in "There Are No Missions." And Dori reaches Level 20, which she mistakes for an exit to the outside world, in "There Are No Missions."

LEVELS (OF SECTION ONE OPERATIVES)

Michael -- and, indeed, most team leaders, like Ackerman and Davenport -- are Class/Level 5 operatives. Nikita is a Class/Level 2 operative throughout the run of the series. Irene Kerensky is designated a Class/Level 4 operative in "Getting Out Of Reverse".
