"Do you know why Korath asked me to take you on this mission? I was a Human who had seen a life of loss, but still chose hope. What an ego I had, thinking I could pick away the shell the Klingons had put around you."
— Philippa Georgiou to Typhuss James Kira, 2381

Captain Philippa Georgiou is a female Human Starfleet officer who lived during the 24th century. She served in the command division as the commanding officer of the USS Shenzhou. She is also a old friend of Vice Admiral Typhuss James Kira. (Star Trek: Intrepid)

She is the descendant of Philippa Georgiou, a Starfleet officer and commanding officer of the USS Shenzhou who was killed by T'Kuvma in 2256 during the war with the Klingons during the Battle of the Binary Stars. (Star Trek DIS episode: "Battle at the Binary Stars")

Early lifeEdit

Philippa Georgiou was born on August 26th in 2348 on Earth in Pulau Langkawi, Malaysia.

Prior to 2379, Georgiou had known great loss, yet remained optimistic in spite of her past.

Her ready room was decorated with memoirs of her life, including several artifacts, books, and awards. It also contained Georgiou's most beloved possession, a telescope that had been in her family for centuries.

Starfleet careerEdit

Georgiou attended Starfleet Academy from 2365 to 2369.

She earned an impressive list of commendations during her career, including the Star Cross and the Legion of Honor. She was also awarded a diploma from the Laikan Military Academy on Andoria for Advanced Interstellar Combat. In 2386, Georgiou was considered one of Starfleet's most decorated captains, listed among other legends such as John Martin, Chakotay, Typhuss James Kira and Erika Hernandez. (Star Trek: Intrepid; Star Trek: The New Generation)

Commanding officer of the USS ShenzhouEdit

In 2380, Georgiou was given command of the USS Shenzhou. As captain, Georgiou preferred a relaxed command style, encouraging conversation between her officers on the bridge; in particular, she enjoyed the friendly rivalry between her first officer and her science officer, although she recognized when to cut between them and assert her authority. However, she was quick to react when an officer crossed a line.
