Perhaps they should change the name of CBS' streaming service from CBS All Access to CBS All Star Trek. Beyond the series  Star Trek: Discovery, they've also produced shorts based on the series, and also have a Jean-Luc Picard  series in the works and also some animated Star Trek content coming up. Today, you can add one more confirmed series to the lineup, another Discovery spin-off…

This new addition will focus on the character… well the Mirror character of Philippa Georgiou, played by Michelle Yeoh. Captain Georgiou was introduced in the debut episode of Discovery and did not last for long, getting killed off in the show's second episode. However, the Mirror version (aka. parallel universe version) was later introduced and was brought back to the Prime universe. The upcoming series will continue the mirror Georgiou's story.

Mirror Georgiou is now a member of the Federation's special security organization, Section 31, who don't fall under the same ethical guidelines that Starfleet personnel do. In other words, they might not be the most welcome people you might encounter in the Star Trek universe. Section 31 was introduced in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's episode "Inquisition", but was shown later to have shown up in the past via episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise and of course Star Trek: Discovery (a Kelvin timeline version of the group also was referenced in Star Trek Into Darkness). Adding the merciless emperor of Terran Empire to your already ethically-challenged group… what could go wrong?

Of course Alex Kurtzman will executive produce along with Aaron Baiers, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth. Baires will join Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt on writing duties. Yeoh seems to be happy resuming the role:

"I'm so excited to continue telling these rich Star Trek stories" … "Being a part of this Universe and this character specifically has been such a joy for me to play. I can't wait to see where it all goes—certainly, I believe it will go 'where no WOMAN has ever gone before!"


No final title or air date for the new series were announced.
