Crazy Rich Asians star Michelle Yeoh is in negotiations to play the lead role in the Star Trek Discovery spin-off.

The actor, who recurred in season one of Discovery, will return in season two as the new spin-off series would likely follow her adventures in Starfleet's Section 31 division.

The potential spin-off is not the only new Star Trek project in the works, as it was announced this summer that Patrick Stewart will reprise his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in another CBS All Access series.
