CBS: Hey let’s make a new Star Trek show and put women of color in the lead roles!

Star Trek fans: Oh! That sounds really cool!

Also CBS: Let’s put it on our overpriced streaming service so the fewest amount of people possible watch it

ASIAN STAR TREK CAPTAIN GEORGIOU

Captain Georgiou kicks ass and I can’t wait to see where things go between her and First Officer Burnham. They are aboard the starship Shenzhou.

And you know what else? Captain Georgiou has an accent. Like. An Asian character in a major and respected role, with an accent and taken seriously.

We’ll see how the series goes.

(P.S. This is also the first ST series that will feature an openly and canonically gay character.)
