It has been a busy year for Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh in Hollywood what with the success of Crazy Rich Asians and signing an overall deal with SK Global Entertainment (first project will be turning the much-talked about book Billion Dollar Whale into a movie).

It looks like she’ll continue her winning streak if rumours are true that CBS All Access is interested to produce a Star Trek: Discovery spin-off featuring Yeoh’s Emperor Georgiou. 

Deadline reported that the actress is currently in talks with the network. 

If it happens, this spin-off will be the third in the Star Trek: Discovery franchise; there’s already one featuring Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart has signed on) as well as an animated comedy titled Lower Deck.

Yeoh appeared in Season One of Discovery as Captain Philippa Georgiou but was killed off in Episode Two. In the second half of the season, Yeoh returned as Emperor Georgiou from a mirror universe. 

You can see more of Yeoh when Star Trek: Discovery Season Two returns on Jan 17.
