Star Trek: Discovery’s First Short Trek, “Runaway” Recap

tilly.jpgAfter talking to her Mom, Tilly suffers a bit of a setback in the self confidence department, but that changes when she encounters an unexpected visitor who is in of some help and guidance….just like Tilly.

The beauty of Tilly is highlighted in this short (only 15 minutes long). She is the everyday woman that is striving to reach her goal. in Tilly’s case it is to become a Starfleet Commander. However, when Tilly’s Mom can’t show confidence in her daughter, Tilly starts to second guess her decision. That all changes when a stowaway named Po pops up.

This is when Tilly shines. She’s empathic, compassionate, and very human as she tries to suss out exactly what is happening with Po. Ultimately, she helps Po figure out what she should do next by allowing her to just talk it out…not dictate what she needs to do.

This is what a true leader does.

This show was a great way to get to know the character of Tilly better. She is still quirky, funny, and sweet, but this gave her a little bit more insight into the beloved character.

Now, there is a very interesting backstory to Po and she should watch the short in order to get a full picture of what is going on.

I can’t wait for the next one.
