Our geeky hearts are beaming up with pride and joy today because Michelle Yeoh is getting her own Star Trek live-action series! Expanding on her role as Emperor Georgiou in Star Trek: Discovery, the show will follow one of our all-time faves as she navigates Starfleet’s Section 31 division.

“I’m so excited to continue telling these rich ‘Star Trek’ stories,” said Michelle Yeoh. “Being a part of this universe and this character specifically has been such a joy for me to play. I can’t wait to see where it all goes – certainly I believe it will go ‘where no WOMAN has ever gone before!’”

Exploring Section 31 will be new territory and what better way to do it than with Philippa Georgiou? She’s a destroyer of worlds (she’s basically Thanos only cuter). Star Trek: Discovery is back this week on CBS All Access for season 2. ’Til then, stay tuned for more info on this upcoming project and raise your glass to Michelle Yeoh!
