Answer:
Quoting Rahulk
A “redshirt” is a stock character in fiction who dies soon after being introduced. The term originates with fans of Star Trek , from the red shirts worn by Starfleet security officers who frequently die during episodes. Redshirt deaths are often used to dramatize the potential peril that the main characters face.

Here the gingerbread men are going to be eaten and therefore “redshirt”.

    In this FoxTrot comic, the gingerbread is about to be devoured – and hence the “redshirt” :D

    a red shirt’s fate is sealed.

    Captain Kirk, Spock, McCOy and ensign Ricky go down to the alien planet…. Guess who’s not coming back…

    Because they’re the expendable red-shirted Starfleet officers.

    Redshirt is a term used to refer to the characters who wear red uniforms and quite often killed in Star Trek.

    All the gingerbread men are going to die.

    A redshirt character in StarTrek indicates he is going to die soon – A cliche of sorts.
    in this case, the gingerbread in red shirts will soon be eaten.
    Jai Foxtrot.

    Red-shirted Star Trek crewmen are … particularly susceptible to career-ending injuries.

    They are all redshirt characters who, in star trek, tend to die quite frequently.

    Redshirt characters on Star Trek die quickly. The gingerbread men here are getting eaten soon after they are prepared.


  11. It symbolizes the core members of the operations team who were always killed first in start trek whenever a baddie tried to attack…


  12. It symbolizes the core members of the “Operations” team in Star Trek who were always the men who used to be killed first or during the introduction whenever a baddie attacked.

    Because if someone’s gonna die, they’ll be wearing a red shirt. This was the same even in the bogus JJ Abrams try.

    Minor ranks wear red shirt, and are usually the first ones to get killed..

    Red shirts on Star Trek usually die.


  18. They are all wearing red shirts because they are all going to die, or so said the Star Trek fans who coined the character name “redshirt”
