Background[edit | edit source]

Tilly was depicted as an ensign, and Discovery was shown in space, meaning whatever cruise was underway was taking place after her promotion in the DSC season 1 finale. At the end of "Runaway", Tilly beamed Po to an unspecified location. Since the finale ended with the beginning of their next mission, with the ship out of transporter range of other planets and space stations, it is likely this story took place before they departed in that last scene.
