The 'Star Trek: Discovery' character Captain Philippa Georgiou might be getting her own spin-off series. It's believed that Michelle Yeoh is currently in negotiations to star in the central role of the series.

Set to begin its second season next year, 'Star Trek: Discovery' is a prequel series to the core 'Star Trek' Enterprise. The series has already announced that fan favourite Spock has been cast to appear, when it starts back again in January.

It's looking like we might be getting more 'Star Trek' goodness after the second season too, as The Hollywood Reporter reports that Michelle Yeoh is in talks to helm her own spin-off.

The 'Crazy Rich Asians' actor is undergoing negotiations with CBS Television Studios currently. It's believed we will see her recurring character helm her own adventures in Starfleet's Section 31 division. Yeoh has starred in many action movies from 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', to Pierce Brosnan's 'Tomorrow Never Dies'.

If a deal is successfully drawn up, this will end up being CBS's fifth 'Star Trek' TV series in production. The studios also recently greenlit an animation series 'Star Trek: Lower Decks', which writer Mike McMahan is behind. McMahon has acted as a writer's assistant on cult favourite 'Rick and Morty'.

Check out the trailer for the new series, which will launch on Netflix in January.
