Anyone going to read the books and comics?
Comics, sure, but I don't think I have the time to read novels.

CBS has pushed back the premiere of its highly anticipated “Star Trek: Discovery” series from a planned early 2017 debut to May.
http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/star-tr ... 201860613/
CBS executives stressed that the delay was driven by the need to give the “Star Trek” creative team more time to meet expectations for the series, particularly with special effects. They said executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller raised the issue of the need for more time last week, which triggered discussions about what would ultimately be best for the series. “Star Trek” is set to start shooting in Toronto at the end of next month.

Pretty humourous to see they posted the same link at the same time.

Anyways, Bryan Fuller said Balance of Terror is a "Touchstone" for this new series.

Always appeal to the Chinese market by having an Asian star in the mix. Yeoh is competent but isn't really a star one would go out to watch. I wonder if she'll like living in Toronto heh heh heh. Hope she knows what she's getting into.

Yeoh is competent
Imho, Michelle Yeoh is much more than competent. Beauty contest winner, her own stunt person, Hong Kong martial arts movie star, Bond girl, star of the Academy Award winning Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - to me those are a perfectly rounded set of qualifications to portray the lead in a Star Trek for the new millennium. I couldn't be more optimistic for the new series after hearing this announcement.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear that this was the reason the new series was delayed - waiting for Michelle Yeoh to clear her schedule - this is a total coup for the show!

BTW, Michelle Yeoh isn't Chinese, but Malaysian. She had to learn her Mandarin dialogue for CTHD phonetically.

this should excite some fans: Star Trek is getting the first new series since Enterprise went off the air a decade ago with Alex Kurtzman, writer of the reboot movies, on board with its development. Who knows if this will take place the same continuity of the movies or if it will be set in the same universe as the past TV shows.

Didn't know she is Malaysian... learned something new! As an actor she is very well liked by other actors, so that's a plus.
