Redshirt Olsen's death - from the 2009 film - could have been prevented. He was just a bit too cocky and silly.

A personal observation: I always find it interesting that the death of individuals in redshirts are celebrated and is a source of amusement, in a universe where life is supposedly precious, as well as equality, enlightenment, etc.
I don't believe, in universe, the deaths are seen as a source of amusement or celebrated.
But in fandom, and with people casually into Star Trek, it is.

(I wasn't too clear on that).

I'd like one example when this was done.
One example:
Online forums.
Still not in universe.

And I don't see a problem making light of the tropes of fiction.
