Michelle Yeoh, as captain Philippa Georgiou and later as evil Emperor Georgiou from Mirror Universe, was one of the most captivating parts of Star Trek: Discovery ‘s first season. And we’ll see much more of her.
According to Hollywood Reporter, Yeoh is in talks with CBS to direct a Star Trek spinoff series of her own, reprising her role as a Georgiou or another. According to THR, this spin, like the others, would be slated for CBS All Access, which puts it next to the line of the upcoming Picard show, the forthcoming Lower Decks animated comedy and the fascinating card form Short train anthology.
That’s what we know. Now, of course, it is time for wild speculation. Should this follow, as the THR article suggests, Mirror! Georgiou in his new role in section 31? A dark, espionage-heavy Trek series would be quite far from the classical spirit of the show, but it can also be fascinating. A real fish out of water, history. Just with a spacecraft.
