Yup! It's official, CBS All Access is moving forward with a new Star Trek spinoff starring Michelle Yeoh. We best know actress Yeoh from her role in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, and more recently, Crazy Rich Asians.
Star Trek EP and expansion overlord Alex Kurtzman said in a statement, “Michelle has shattered ceilings, broken boundaries, and astonished us with her grace and gravitas for decades. As a human, I adore her. As an actor, I revere her,” he added. “Erika and Boey are remarkable, exciting writers who bring a fresh perspective to the world of Star Trek, and we’re all thrilled to explore the next wild chapter in the life of Captain Philippa Georgiou.”
“I’m so excited to continue telling these rich ‘Star Trek’ stories,” the actor said. “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!'”
