Seeing red

Don't ask me why, but I got to thinking about redshirts today.

As all Star Trek fans know, a "redshirt" is a character who dies shortly after being introduced. The term originates from the red shirts worn by Starfleet security officers who frequently die during episodes.

In many episodes of Star Trek, red-uniformed security officers and engineers accompanying the main characters on landing parties quickly die. In the Star Trek novel Killing Time, a crew member says, "you don't want to wear a red shirt on landing-party duty."

Well, I don't have a red shirt but I do have my red corset unmentionable. I'd like to see anyone try to kill me.

My aether pistol might be set on stun but I never miss.
