Michelle Yeoh’s Captain Philippa Georgiou set for her own Star Trek series?

November 12th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Big news for fans of Star Trek: Discovery and actress Michelle Yeoh as it looks like we may be seeing a lot more of her soon.

While we already know Patrick Stewart is back as Jean-Luc Picard in a new series over at CBS, it looks like he’s not the only Captain to get their own show.

Yes, word on the street is that Michelle Yeoh is in talks to reprise her Star Trek Discovery role of Captain Emperor Georgiou for a stand-alone CBS All Access series.

There is a natural momentum here as Yeoh’s once Captain Philippa Georgiou is already set to return to Discovery in Season 2 after leaping off into the final frontier at the end of Season 1. Still in the early planning stages, the spinoff looks likely to focus on a continuation of her Discovery Season 2 adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division. The semi-secret and autonomous organization has been a part of Trek lore since it was first introduced in the 1990s on the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series.

CBS’ David Stapf’s recently said of the growing Star Trek universe on the station: “My goal is that there should be a Star Trek something on all the time on All Access.”

Honestly, we weren’t the biggest fan of Discovery last year, but with the introduction of established Trek characters and lore for season 2, we have high hopes still.

If done correctly, Star Trek is the pinnacle of topical and relevant sci-fi… let’s hope CBS can make this an ongoing tradition.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
