Redshirt Blues [Video]

One of the truths from the original Star Trek is that the red-shirted security officers on away missions are always doomed. If someone's getting disintegrated by an energy cloud or eaten by a giant green alien monster, there's a sure bet he's wearing a red shirt. Redshirt Blues imagines a conversation between two redshirts - a rookie and a veteran - who happen to notice the trend.

    I appreciate the time put into all things Star Trek... wasn't Scotty a red shirt?

  3. People have written whole books on this topic. I recently read a short story from the POV of a redshirt waiting for his number to come up. He's fortunately saved by his wife, who concocts an ingenious scheme to save the day.

  4. John Scalzi recently released Redshirts, which is a novel that explores this very topic.
