After the announcement that Patrick Stewart will resume his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in his own Star Trek Discovery spin-off, Michelle Yeoh might be next in line to lead her own vehicle…
The Crazy Rich Asians star is in talks with CBS All Access to front her own series, which would continue her character, Captain Emperor Georgiou’s adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division.
Star Trek Discovery executive producer Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout and David Stapf’s CBS TV Studios have been chasing possible spin-offs for a few months now and a possible Georgiou-fronted series chimes with what we’ve heard before.
In August Stapf said, “My goal is that there should be a Star Trek something on all the time on All Access”, and it seems like Stapf’s vision is about to continue being realised.
We’ll keep you updated on the possibility of a Michelle Yeoh Star Trek Discovery spin-off or any other Star Trek series.
