To quote Rahulk:

“Redshirt :- One who comes to the show just to say Tata-Bye-Bye in a short time…..

Basically its a stock character in the show Star Trek that dies in a short time to demonstrate what danger the main characters in the show faces…”

    Redshirt (usually unnamed characters in Star Trek whose sole purpose seemed to be to die a horrible death after being beamed down to some planet)


  4. Johny Walker

    Redshirt

    Redshirting. Characters with red shirts seem to die off.

    Red Shirt.
    Because, almost invariably, characters wearing red shirts are the ones who died.
