Red Shirt History
The Expendable Crewmen (aka Red Shirts) are a famous part of Star Trek.
- "I'm The Guy Who Gets Killed To Prove The Situation Is Serious"
- Guy Fleegman, Galaxy Quest
With Origins dating back to the Original Star Trek series... there has been an unfortunate "Red Shirt" who dies. They are always played by character never before seen in the series and are almost always characterized by the red shirt they wear. It has become a common joke that in a Star Trek episode if you have not seen anyone before in another episode they will die. Of course not all Expendable Crewmen wore Red but a majority of them did.
