The spinoff is set to focus on a continuation of Captain Philippa Georgio's (Yeoh) Discovery Season 2 adventures in Starfleet's Section 31 division.

A spinoff featuring Captain Philippa Georgiou of the USS Shenzhou, in a brand-new series surrounding Section 31, a highly secretive division of Starfleet Intelligence specializing in espionage. Section 31 is an autonomous organization that was established since the beginning of Starfleet, with no oversight or accountability that operated with the purpose to protect the security interests of United Earth/the United Federation of Planets. Sharing many parallels with the Romulan Tal Shiar and Cardassian Obsidian Order, this collection operated independently without Starfleet's knowledge or consent, despite being under the Federation's jurisdiction. Some of Starfleet's top commanding officers were aware of Section 31's existence, where the department's well-placed agents spread throughout almost every level of civilian Federation government and Starfleet's command structure could neutralize any targets without the risk of any public exposure.

(03/23/20) An all-new novel based upon the Star Trek TV series, Star Trek: Discovery: Die Standing, is scheduled to publish on July 14, 2020.
No one in the history of histories has lost more than Philippa Georgiou, ruler of the Terran Empire. Forced to take refuge in the Federation's universe, she bides her time until Section 31, a rogue spy force within Starfleet, offers her a chance to work as their agent. She has no intention of serving under anyone else, of course; her only interest is escape.

But when a young Trill, Emony Dax, discovers a powerful interstellar menace, Georgiou recognizes it as a superweapon that escaped her grasp in her own universe. Escorted by a team sent by an untrusting Federation to watch over her, the emperor journeys to a region forbidden to travelers. But will what she finds there end the threat - or give "Agent Georgiou" the means to create her old empire anew?

AX: Are you guys having internal debate about how much to use Michelle Yeoh in Season 3, because they're spinning off her character?
KADIN: We want to use Michelle Yeoh as much as possible. Our plan is, she'll be used throughout Season 3. The spinoff wouldn't happen until after that.
AX: So the spinoff wouldn't happen until you're no longer doing STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, or the spinoff wouldn't happen until after Season 3?
KADIN: Or in the middle of Season 3, let's say, but we have every intention of using her - you'll see her all of this season, and then most of next.

(08/11/18) Excerpt from Deadline interview with CBS All Access Bosses:

  Deadline: Based on the way the first season of Discovery ended, is there a Trek series with Michelle Yeoh in the works?
  Julie McNamara (programming chief for All Access): We've really talked about virtually all of the characters who popped in Discovery as potential spin-off shows. It's obviously very much driven by our conversations with Alex Kurtzman's Secret Hideout and the other creators involved. I wouldn't say at this point that we are actively pursuing a Michelle Yeoh series but it has been discussed.
