Redshirt Treatment

R is for the loving Redshirt Treatment. In keeping with the A to Z festive spirit, why don't we celebrate Star Trek's itchy trigger fingers with some 'Red Shirt' fun. The curse of the Redshirt began with Captain Kirk's five year mission enforcing peace in the galaxy. These crewmen live fast and die red. So how do you explain this? Heres a picture featuring healthy redshirts!

These guys have obviously never watched Star Trek!


In star trek, heres what really happens to redshirts. Wouldn't you agree? Still want the full redshirt treatment? 

Live Long and Prosper, trekkie.

You also don't want to be the crewman with no last name...

Jo said...

I never knew that until quite recently. No last name either. Guess they knew they were for the chop

I definitely wouldn't want to red shirt treatment. I do love the trope no matter how many times it's parodied.

Remember Guy Fleegman, Galaxy Quest? "I'm not even supposed to be here. I'm just 'Crewman Number Six'. I'm expendable. I'm the guy in the episode who dies to prove how serious the situation is! I've gotta get outta here!"

Just saw "The Apple," in which no less than three redshirts die, and notable for being the episode where Kirk expresses real regret for this sort of thing happening.

The red shirt syndrome. I recall the year before our divorce, my wife gave me a red shirt for an anniversary gift. Think she was trying to tell me something?

At least Scotty was safe:) Whenever they went on an away mission, you know the red shirt is done for...I think they all knew it

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I always felt sorry for the nameless crew members who went out with Kirk and Spock.
