Ode to The Red Shirts


An ode to Away Team security;
Those single-serving sailors of space.
Rarely a line do they utter,
Mostly a groan or a mutter,
With their Captain they must stay apace.

Always the first to die on a mission,
They're the caged canaries in the cave.
Disruptor beams, mosquito bites,
Lightning striking just right.
They're either most unlucky or most brave.

An Away team mission without red shirts?
Bite your Trek-tratorious tongue in twain!
Ask any in the know,
Get a name in the show,
And a blue or gold shirt you'll attain.
