We interrupt your busy Thursday to show you a glimpse of Datuk Michelle Yeoh in her role in the upcoming television series, Star Trek: Discovery.

The Malaysian actress will play Captain Philippa Georgiou alongside The Walking Dead's Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham. The rest of the cast includes Jason Isaacs, Mary Wiseman, Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy, Sam Vartholomeos, James Frain, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Chris Obi, Mary Chieffo, and Rainn Wilson.

The series focuses on events taking place about 10 years before the events of the original 1966 series. In the trailer, we see Georgiou and Burnham piloting The Discovery spaceship as it comes across an unknown object on the edge of Federation space that leads them to a scuffle with the Klingons.

Star Trek: Discovery arrives on Netflix this fall.
