Aight, looks like this project is moving along, it really will be Georgiu as a Section 31 operative. Here's what Kurtzman said recently:
"Erica [Lippoldt] and Bo Yeon [Kim], two writers on our ‘Discovery’ staff, started writing a pilot and it’s really different. It occupies an area of the ‘Trek’ universe that’s never really been explored geographically."
"It has a new mythology to it, which is very interesting. And it puts Michelle’s character to the test in a lot of ways that ‘Discovery’ can’t. In some ways it will be her ‘Unforgiven,’ I would say."
Unforgiven, of course, is the classic 1992 Clint Eastwood film in which a former outlaw, now living in retirement, who must return to action to stop a pair of dangerous criminals.
While there are still plenty of questions about the show yet to be answered — including when it is set to take place, given that Georgiou was along for the ride when the Discovery shot 900+ years into the future in the Discovery season finale.
