Re: The Redshirt Myth?

Well, I will grant that the episode doesn't really go into details about the aide's fate. Just like it doesn't go into details about the workings of the Eminians' sonic disruptor weapons (on a side note, I never did understand how weapons based on sonic vibrations can affect a starship in orbit, but I suppose that's another thread), but I've always felt the aide was killed in that fight (and there's no reason his lifeless body couldn't be taken to a disintegration station later, anyway).

But I do stand by my actual point, which was that the episode is an anomaly in my opinion as regards the usual fate of redshirts who beam down and encounter a hostile situation.
