Michelle Yeoh’s Star Trek return is officially underway. Paramount+ has announced that production on Star Trek: Section 31—which will see her reprise her memorable Discovery role as Emperor Philippa Georgiou—has begun.

Star Trek‘s fan-favorite Terran isn’t heading back to the 32nd century. She’s not even heading back to Star Trek: Discovery, where she made her franchise debut. Instead, she’s on set in this century filming her previously announced spinoff movie. (Which at one time was set to be an entire spinoff series.) Star Trek: Section 31 has officially begun principal photography.
