Re: The luckiest guy in TOS

Though I hope I'm not being off-topic trying to get back on-topic, I'd say Lt. Garrovick in "Obsession"
  • He's a redshirt
  • Four other redshirt characters die (i.e. including Lt. Leslie's twin brother)
  • He survives several encounters with the vampire cloud (thanks to Spock's and Kirk's assistance)
My other candidate would be Scotty in "The Changeling"
  • He get's killed
  • But he is resurrected

Killed and brought back to life, no big deal. Just ask Spock, and McCoy.

But they did not bear the onus of wearing red shirts, a known "target on one's back" in the TOS universe.

The question was about the luckiest guy in TOS (not Star Trek in general).
Right now I neither do remember an established death of Spock or McCoy in TOS.

Not sure about Spock but didn't McCoy "die" in Shore Leave?

I was counting Spock's death in TWOK as he is an original series character even though said demise did not occur during the series run.

"She turned you into a newt?" Hmm, sounds like a scene in "Charlie X."
