Is it me ...

Post by JM1776 » Tue Feb 20, 2018 10:48 am

... or is Mary Wiseman's character just a tad too chunky for a Starfleet cadet?

Um...I think it's just you. I must say that those uniforms are not the most flattering ones they've had though.

Mary Wiseman’s character seems to be more comic relief, sometimes. Of course, she seems to be a character that has some form of autism. Probably something curable by the 23rd century but Tilly can be awkward.

At least, that’s my impression. When it comes to Captain Lorca before they found out he was from the Mirror Universe, I would almost say that he was almost like Captain Mantovanni. At least, that’s my impression. My favorite character of the series, so far, is Saru. He definitely takes me back to the Original Star Trek about how aliens were made. Kelpiens seem to be more original than some of the aliens created in the other series. If the producers keep him there, I could see him as the first alien captain of a mainstream starship.

Anyways, those are my thoughts.

They could have designed better uniforms.

Yeah.

I was mostly speaking rhetorically. She's definitely too chubby to be a Starfleet cadet. They would have either rejected her out of hand, or really, really cracked down on her physical training until she met standard.

I'll try not to be insulted on behalf of my character, who's far more compassionate, humane, and kind than Lorca.

If I haven't conveyed that in my series, then it's been a failure from day one.

It was not intended as an insult. They just share a few things but in a war or on an away mission, I would put my faith more in Mantovanni. Lorca didn’t really instill any trust for me in him.

Well, in Lorca's defense, we never saw him. We only saw his ruthless, "evil" counterpart.

Mantovanni's a more intense guy. His good is better, and his bad is worse.

I've considered what the Mirror Universe Mantovanni would be like ... and it's not pleasant at all.

You're right, she's a bigger girl. Look at her character Meg Joyce from Longmire.
She's also 32... not sure how she's a Cadet at that age.
