#250posts24hrsAAPI - 72: Michelle Yeoh + Star Trek Discovery + Women Of Color

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Definitely looking to watch this - you can bet your ass I'm gonna watch this.

At the same time I thought I'd post up a link to this article:

When they began to announce casting for Star Trek: Discovery, the child in me was thrilled. Not only would one of the starship captains be a woman of color, but she was Asian. Not South Asian like I am — Michelle Yeoh is Chinese Malaysian — but it began to feel like Star Trek was finally embracing the global population Starfleet purported to represent. I was excited.
