About those ‘Star Trek’ red shirts

Per Comic Con, it looks like William Shatner will return as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek 3.  Now if they can only bring back the Green Chick too, the universe will be whole again.  – REEL BRIEF.com

We’re about 1 year from seeing Star Trek 3 hit the theaters, but it got me thinking about those USS Enterprise crew members wearing their infamous red shirts.  I’ve discussed this before:

Star Trek Trivia: Faithful viewers of the 1960s television show will immediately see the precarious position that wearing a Red Shirt put these guys in. Most will immediately think that more Star Fleet officers wearing Red Shirts died than any other colored shirt–and you’d be correct.

However, using the actual formula below, Significance Magazine determined that the casualty rates of Gold Shirts during the 60’s TV show was higher than that of the Red Shirts. Go figure.

Still, Red Shirt security personnel have a casualty rate of 75%.

Oh, and it looks like William Shatner will return as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek 3 per Comic Con. Now if they can only bring back the Green Chick too, the universe will be whole again.
