Background information

Despite being credited as a "Special Guest Star", Michelle Yeoh received credit in the main titles for most of her appearances as either Captain Georgiou or Emperor Georgiou. The only exception was in "The Wolf Inside", in order to conceal a plot twist.

Beginning with season 2, only main cast members who appear in an episode are credited in the main titles, aside from "That Hope Is You, Part 1".
