Production has begun on Paramount+'s movie “Star Trek: Section 31,” starring Michelle Yeoh.

Yeoh will reprise the role of Emperor Philippa Georgiou in the film, having originated the character in the first season of “Star Trek: Discovery.” 

Georgiou, after crossing over from the Mirror Universe, now works as an agent for the mysterious Federation spy group known as Section 31. 

The official description of the film states, “Tasked with protecting the United Federation of Planets, [Georgiou] also must face the sins of her past.”

The movie also stars Omari Hardwick, Kacey Rohl, Sam Richardson, Sven Ruygrok, Robert Kazinsky, Humberly Gonzalez, and James Hiroyuki Liao.

Craig Sweeny serves as writer and executive producer on “Star Trek: Section 31.” Olatunde Osunsanmi will direct and executive produce. Yeoh will executive produce in addition to starring. 

Alex Kurtzman and Aaron Baiers executive produce via Secret Hideout. Rod Rodenberry and Trevor Roth of Rodenberry Entertainment also executive produce along with Frank Siracusa and John Weber. 

Section 31 was first introduced in the “Star Trek” series “Deep Space Nine.” 

The organization has since been featured in the “Star Trek” shows “Enterprise,” “Discovery,” “Lower Decks,” and “Picard,” as well as the movie “Into Darkness.”
