Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages ... er, of the strange kind. You always knew that there isn't normal days in the StarFleet prime exploration vessel, the Discovery even if the Shorts season start with Tilly talking about the normal stuff to her mum. You can see her enthusiasm bursting out from the above picture, when her Mum dismisses her idea about Tilly participating in the StarFleet's Command program.

It is as if Mum's are made that way. They don't want their children to be far, far away somewhere in the galaxy, where they cannot influence the ways of how things should go down with their offspring. I think someone you already know how she really feels without being able to dip into her person and hear those thoughts. She is hurting and there is not much Tilly can do to bring her smiling, laughing shelf to the surface until she meets the mysterious princess, hiding under the cloaking field.

I loved that the galley's food dispencer went berzerk and started distributing everything it had on the menu once the princess started moving around. Although I would hate to being the person to clean up the mess as there are no mechanoids in the Discovery. Maybe that means that at some point in the future the automaton revolution we are going through at the moment doesn't apply to the utopia created after the nuclear fallout that fell upon Earth.

Luckily Tilly isn't a walkover even though her mum thinks very little of her. She didn't believe for a second that the space princess was anything else than just that. Thank God that Mums around the galaxy are mostly the same, and that issue becomes the unifying cornerstone for their relationship just like it could do in any other sisterhood situation.

What I really loved is that the royalties causes behaviour problems wherever you encounter them. Tilly, however, causes smiles and love emotions whenever you see her in the small screen.
