“I am thrilled to be returning to my Star Trek family and to a role I have loved for so long,” Yeoh said in a statement.

She added, “Section 31 has been near and dear to my heart since I began my journey playing Philippa all the way back when this new golden age for ‘Star Trek’ began.”

“Seeing her finally get her moment is a dream come true in a year that has shown me the incredible power of never giving up on your dreams,” Yeoh added.

“We can’t wait to share what’s in store for you, and until then: Live long and prosper (unless Emperor Georgiou decides otherwise)!” concluded.

Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman added that Yeoh had the idea for The Georgiou Show back in 2017, “before the first season of Star Trek: Discovery even aired.”

“She broke new ground as one of the first two women on screen in the pilot to usher in a new era of Trek, and now, six years later, Star Trek: Section 31 finally arrives on the heels of its latest, groundbreaking win,” he said, referring to her being the first Asian woman to win.

The film is written by Craig Sweeney, who served as a writer and producer on the first season of Star Trek: Discovery, and directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi, who directed 12 episodes of Discovery.
