LOL I loved that article, Fleet Admiral. So Kirk having sex with green alien women was actually GOOD for the red shirted members of the crew! That explains why he was always banging hot alien chicks, because he knew it would benefit his crew and he always put his crew ahead of himself. So noble. lol


Ahh, Kirk, my old friend. Do you know the Klingon proverb which tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold? It's very cold....in space.

Kirk was always thinking about his crew.  It was a hard job, but someone had to do it and Kirk was there to so it for his crew

I really felt for those poor red shirts that went on the Away Missions.  It was usually just a matter of time for those guys

That's the nice thing about voyager and Enterprise. There are no pointless deaths of redshirts/goldshoulders/MACOs. all the other serieses, security officers get randomly vaporized.

A total of 55?  That was much more than I thought to be.

Oh, Red Shirts when will you ever learn.  Never, ever, ever join the main crew on an away mission.  Speaking of Red Shirts, I'd love to get people's opinions of my new Comedic Web Series called Red Shirts.  We focus on the little guys, three in particular and boy are they dumb.  Ensign Monroe, Ensign Garibaldi, and Ensign Barry do everything they can to shirk their duties and stay alive.  We just finished shooting out first two episodes and we'll have the Episodes 1 Part 1 out soon.  If you have time check out the production photos and cast videos on our Facebook page.

Thank you and Live Long and Prosper.
