Michelle Yeoh to Captain Star Trek: Discovery

November 23, 2016
Well, "Lieuitenant Commander", technically.

Consulting producer Nicholas Meyer has revealed that Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Michelle Yeoh will take a major role in CBS’s Star Trek: Discovery series. It is presumed, but not technically confirmed at this time, that Yeoh will play the lead, a female Lieutenant Commander.

This is certainly good news. Yeoh is a huge talent and no stranger to science fiction – remember her turn in Sunshine? She also ticks a lot of diversity boxes, an element of some importance to the new series according to executive producer, Bryan Fuller. IDIC, folks.

Star Trek: Discovery debuts in March 2017 and will be available on Netflix in Australia.
