Consulting producer on the upcoming series is director Nicholas Meyer ("Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan").
Yeoh will play a character "...who is on a journey that is going to teach her how to get along with others in the galaxy. For her to truly understand something that is alien, she has to first understand herself.

The new series is noted as the first show produced specifically for the All Access, and the first "Star Trek" series since "Star Trek: Enterprise" concluded in 2005.
