The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Aug 10, 2018


When we first met Discovery’s fiery cadet, Sylvia Tilly, she was a bright-eyed but socially awkward character serving in engineering. But she quickly befriends Michael Burnham and the two develop a mutually beneficial relationship, one that nurtures her goal of becoming a captain. At the end of the first season, she is promoted to ensign and sets out on the command track that could lead her to the captain's chair.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Amy Nelson and Patrick Devlin are joined by Brandi Jackola of Warp Five to discuss Sylvia Tilly, how she helped Stamets with the spore drive, her interactions with the crew, and her short-lived command stint as Captain Killy in the Mirror Universe.
