***EVERYTHING IS SPOILERS — YOU’VE BEEN WARNED***
Recently, Michelle Yeoh
, who plays Captain Philippa Georgiou of the USS Shenzhou, spoke positively of her role and the impact it will have on viewers.
“It is very empowering and it is very inspirational. In the past I didn’t used to think about it, but now I can understand how powerful a motivator it is, especially for (young girls). They’ll think, ‘If she can do this, I can do this,’” she said in an interview
“There’s a colossal fight, as T’Kuvma was neither killed nor harmed in the explosion. Georgiou is killed in hand-to-hand combat with T’Kuvma, then Burnham blows a hole through T’Kuvma’s chest with her phaser.”
Many netizens felt strongly about Georgiou’s death:
One Twitter user offers hope to those still bitter about their beloved captain’s death:
Although it remains to be seen if Georgiou survived or if those episodes feature flashback scenes.
