An untitled Star Trek series, to be released on CBS All Access, will star Michelle Yeoh, playing the role of the mirror Philippa Georgiou, as a member of Section 31. [1]

The series will be produced by CBS Studios, Secret Hideout, and Roddenberry Entertainment, with Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth as executive producers.

In addition, Aaron Baiers, Bo Yeon Kim, and Erika Lippoldt will be the series' co-executive producers. According to Kurtzman, Kim and Lippoldt will be the showrunners. They are also the writers of the series' pilot episode. [2]

The series was announced on 14 January 2019. [3]

Kurtzman has said that the series "occupies an area of the Trek universe that's never really been explored geographically," and that it "has a new mythology to it." Speaking of Michelle Yeoh, Kurtzman said that the series would "put her character to the test in a way that Discovery can't," and compared it to the 1992 Western film Unforgiven. [4]
