Star Trek: Section 31

Don’t you love the “streaming wars?” With the media and movie giants fighting for subscribers, we all get to benefit from more great content.

Paramount+ is a relative newcomer to this market and also wants a piece of the action. To that end, they have recently announced a new Star Trek movie starring Academy Award winner Michelle Yeoh.

Called Star Trek: Section 31, it will see Yeoh returning to her role as Emperor Philippa Georgiou, a character she first played in Star Trek: Discovery’s first season.

In the movie, we’ll see Emperor Philippa Georgiou joining a secret division of Starfleet tasked with protecting the United Federation of Planets and facing the sins of her past. Produced by CBS Studios, production will begin later this year.

“I’m beyond thrilled to return to my ‘Star Trek’ family and to the role I’ve loved for so long,” said Michelle Yeoh. “Section 31 has been near and dear to my heart since I began the journey of playing Philippa all the way back when this new golden age of ‘Star Trek’ launched. To see her finally get her moment is a dream come true in a year that’s shown me the incredible power of never giving up on your dreams. We can’t wait to share what’s in store for you, and until then: live long and prosper (unless Emperor Georgiou decrees otherwise)!”

“All the way back in 2017, before the first season of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY had even aired, Michelle had the idea to do a spin-off for her character, Philippa Georgiou,” said executive producer Alex Kurtzman. “She broke new ground as one of the first two women on screen in the pilot to usher in a new age of ‘Trek,’ and now, six years later, STAR TREK: SECTION 31 finally arrives on the heels of her latest groundbreaking win. Everyone on Team ‘Trek’ couldn’t be more thrilled to have our legendary friend return home to us as we expand our storytelling into new and uncharted corners of the Trekverse. Long live Emperor Georgiou; long live Michelle Yeoh!”
