Just before Thanksgiving, word spread that Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Michelle Yeoh would appear as a starship captain in Star Trek: Discovery, the upcoming series from CBS All Access. It all started with writer Nicholas Meyer (whose dog you really should follow on Twitter).

It’s the first bit of casting intel we’ve had for Discovery, which has already been pushed back several months and lost its devoted (and fan-favorite) showrunner to other duties.

Discovery is to feature a female lead who is not the ship’s captain, but rather a lieutenant commander.
