I didn't realise how much I needed another woman in command of a Starfleet vessel until the Star Trek Discovery trailer came out. A woman! A Chinese woman! A Chinese woman with an accent! Mentoring the main character, who is also a black woman and seems to have some interesting identity stuff happening with regard to Vulcans!

I'm trying to moderate my enthusiasm by concentrating on the fact that Georgiou is not the captain of the USS Discovery, and may therefore be a minor character, or she could even be killed off early on, despite what Wikipedia and IMDB say about Michelle Yeoh's appearance in all 13 episodes.

Buuuuut. I'm excited.

What I don't understand is that when they announced Jason Isaacs, they announced him as the main captain (of the Discovery). So...none of the White Dudes were in the trailer, which is...odd?

I have no idea.

I think Rekha Sharma is going to play A Decent Person, finally, though, which makes me incredibly happy.

Seeing Rekha Sharma get cast as a security officer made me SQUEAL so hard. I loved her in BSG, but of course she had to be evil and now I finally get to see her in something else. So happy. ♥

I'm not even that into Star Trek and I still flailed so hard because that cast photo is glorious and also MICHELLE YEOH!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ I would watch any number of things for Michelle Yeoh, tbh.

I'm very excited at the prospect of an ST property that is not shit. This looks like it could be the one.

Totally. Janeway came at an awkward time in my life, so I loved her and then hated her as part of growing up, but... damn is it going to be fantastic to have a woman in charge of another Starfleet ship now that I'm old enough to deal well with it (and then some, but still).

And she's Chinese! And I've always liked Michelle Yeoh! Even if she's a minor character or (god forbid) she gets killed off early on, she's there damn it, and she's ours. I have a feeling I will be writing a lot of Captain Georgiou fanfic basically no matter what happens in the series. XD

Exactly! Don't get me wrong, if she dies I will be PISSED. But a little thing like death never stops a good character in fandom... XD

And oh, comparing her to Beifong... yeah, that sounds about right to how I'm already imagining the character. ♥♥♥

I watched the trailer and then went running around in circles, flailing like Kermit. ...I don't know actors well (like, I can sort of name a few and most of them are, er, Star Trek ones...), but these gals looked... *runs around in circles, flailing, and making fangirl squees*

(OH HAI VULCAN FANGIRL? YES I AM HERE FOR VULCAN FANGIRLING, IC OR OOC. THERE ARE VULCANS IN THIS TRAILER! I AM FANGIRL! (I also Romulan fangirl, but hey, pointy ears are always good.))

Ahem. Anyway. I hope the scripts are all reasonably consistent, have decent continuity (I like a canon continuity because it makes the world feel less shifting-under-my-feet and I am therefore making faces at Klingons With Ridges because they're not allowed to have Ridges between Enterprise and sometime after Kirk)... But the trailer does fill me with hope. *stomps on the hope to set expectations low*

*runs around in circles, fangirl-flailing*

*shares in the excitement* Can't wait to get home in a couple of days and see the trailed without the bad quality and constant buffering.

MOTHERFUCKERS BETTER NOT TOUCH MICHELLE YEOH
