Starfleet CIC Jellico - G Judd by stourangeau Starfleet CIC Jellico - G Judd by stourangeau
Here is another $50.00 Custom Colored Character Commission for Glenn Judd. This time he wanted to do
the Starfleet Commander In Chief in the Dark Mirror Universe. He left it up to me as to who it would be.

I chose Edward Jellico. As he is the CIC in the Federation in the Novels Currently. I figured like with Shakespeare’s
equally Dark Characters (Quoted by Phlox in a Mirror Darkly), why not have Jellico just as slimy as in the Federation Universe
rise to the posting of the Terran Starfleet CIC in the Dark Mirror Universe as well.


I also threw in Imperial Guards for Security.

Jellico wasn't slimy, if anything he was the truest thing that (the Bermanverse) 24th century Starfleet had to a true military professional.
Its just that the TNG fans resented him because he wasn't the pussified officer like Picard was and they confused him with the actor's
mean characters from Robocop and the first Total Recall, if you asked Ronny Cox, he'd say they were just jobs that were a lot of fun to do.
Though I will admit that I haven't read the current novels, and if the writers are doing him as 'slimy' then they're just reflecting their own
bias against the character as originally see in TNG.

I agree, Jellico was a true military professional and acted as any real life military commander would. The crew of the Enterprise simply weren't used to his style and reacted badly to it but they'd forgotten that Starfleet serves as the Federation's MILITARY FORCE, not some country club. Jellico in turn was trying to get the crew of the Enterprise in tip top shape as they were headed into a possible military situation against the Cardassians and when Riker stepped out of line and let his emotions and concern over Picard being captured by the Cardassians keep him from doing his job properly, Jellico did the right thing and relieved him of duty. Jellico of course later on swallowed his pride and asked for Riker's help in stopping the Cardassians even though he thought that Riker was a crappy officer with an attitude problem. It takes a professional and a big man to do that. 

Just because the guy who played Jellico played bad guy characters in movies and on Stargate the series doesn't mean that Jellico sucks. Too many Star Trek fans write off Jellico as sucking just because he's hardline and acts like a stern and strict professional. While he's not very diplomatic like Picard, Jellico doesn't need to be. He's meant to be a military guy used to smack around the Federation's enemies either militarily or when negotiating with them.

IDW Comics is doing the same thing in their Mirror [well, Rick Berman version] Universe stories right now, even drawing him with skinny  malnourished arms and physique, compared to a pumped-up Picard.  Totally  prejudiced  which is why I won't buy that mini-series, ever. All the  criticism I notice is coming from those that are civilians, that is those who never wore a uniform. Not even a cadet one, though the cadet programs I speak of are mainly Commonwealth countries, the closest thing I see in the US is the Civil Air Patrol, and while the Royal Canadian Air Cadets some times interact with the CAP, they're not same, organisation-wise to the RCAC.   As for land and sea equivalents, I only know of the plethora of private military schools that dot the landscape in the US. Still not the same type of structure but I heard some could be quite severe, though my experience comes from the 1970s and even today, our cadet programs don't seem as tough as it used to be in my day.  Basically, I'm saying, if you haven't 'been there, done that' you probably would not understand. Sorta like the difference in discipline between the Nathan James and The Love Boat.

Note to Stourangeau:  In my complaint letters I once sent to DC Comics [The Mirror Universe Saga] I noted to them that they should watch the old episode "Mirror Mirror" again. In that whether it was the senior officer's uniform [Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Mr.Scott] the Imperial symbol was clearly over the right side of the chest, and the only adornment on the red-shirt security uniform and women's uniform.  So I suggested, if they were using the movie uniform styles that they do the same but have the closure on the left side, rather than the right, indeed a true 'mirror image' .
