The Red Shirt Conspiracy

There's a story on Wired that proves once and for all: There WAS a conspiracy against the poor red-shirt wearing guys on Star Trek... 73% of all crewmembers killed were red-shirted.

So, if you ever go to a convention and plan to wear a classic costume... don't wear red, your life may depend on it.

Oh, for ST:NG yellow is the new red, mind you... ;-)
