Michelle Yeoh in Talks for “Star Trek” Spinoff

Michelle Yeoh is in talks to reprise her Star Trek Discovery role of Captain Emperor Georgiou.

The star is in negotiations with producers at CBS Television Studios. The Crazy Rich Asians star is in talks with the network to see her character get a spin-off into a new series. Should a stand-alone Captain Emperor Georgiou series happen at CBS All Access, it would be the fifth overall in CBS All Access’ Star Trek franchise.

As the franchise grows and the Trekverse expands, it seems there’s room for Yeoh to helm her own fleet. The stand-alone series would most likely focus on her character’s adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division, the secret organization first introduced on the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series.

Representatives for CBS All Access and CBS TV Studios declined to comment.
