Trope-a-Day: The Strategist

The Strategist: Much like the long lifespans and engineered genius tends to turn those with a socially focused qalasír into The Chessmaster, they tend to turn those with a military/strategic focus into The Strategist.  (Dúréníän would approve.  So would Grand Admiral Thrawn.)  Can, on occasion, verge on Mary Tzu – being optimized with trans/postsophont technology, they really are that good.
