It's a lot of analysis, but it basically confirms the anecdotal evidence. Red shirts die when they beam down and everyone is better off it Kirk gets laid.

Thank you all the same, but when a side is actually titled 'clicktracks.com,' I think it's a link I'll pass on. [Razz]

A couple of years ago, I ran a teen program at the library. The kids made ST videos and we had a contest. My only rule was that ensigns in red shirts must die. I got a call from the paper asking why, when we sent out the press release announcing the contest. LOL

Must admit it was a lot of work, but a really fun program. I got autographs from a bunch of more elusive stars because it was a teen library program, so the kids were over the moon.

I always wondered why I felt slightly nervous when wearing red. Indeed, I have only two items of that colour in my wardrobe (both given as gifts) and I do tend to wear them only as a last resort...

Of course the other way for crewmen to survive, is to always have a change of clothes with them, so that whenever a perilous situation arises, they can quickly whip into a nice blue, or yellow ensemble - thus increasing their chances of survival. [Big Grin]
