"Star Trek: Discovery's" Philippa Georgiou (played by actor Michelle Yeoh) is getting her own TV spin-off. According to Deadline, Yeoh will reportedly continue on Discovery while this new show is developed simultaneously. The new show is being developed by Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt.

According to the announcement from the Discovery Twitter, the new series centers on Georgiou as a part of Section 31 division.

"I'm so excited to continue telling these rich 'Star Trek' stories," said Yeoh. "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!'

Section 31? Isn't that the Federation secret intelligence agency introduced in DS9?

Section 31 was the name of an officially-nonexistent and autonomous clandestine organization which claimed to protect the security interests of United Earth and, later, the United Federation of Planets.

Section 31 was also somewhat comparable to the Romulan Tal Shiar or Cardassian Obsidian Order – unlike these other organizations, Section 31's very existence was a deeply buried secret, known only to a handful of people beyond its own membership. (DS9: "Inquisition")

Perhaps Section 31's darkest aspect was that, while it had existed since the beginning of Starfleet, it was autonomous, having operated for over two centuries with no oversight or accountability whatsoever, even free to kill those it deemed a threat to Federation interests at its own discretion. (DS9: "When It Rains...") Some high-ranking Starfleet admirals and intelligence personnel at times seemed to be vaguely aware that Section 31 existed, though giving them only very broad objectives. (DS9: "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges") At other times, Section 31 appeared to be an outright puppet master to Starfleet, directing the actions and even overall political policies of the Federation itself. (DS9: "Extreme Measures").
