In any event, getting back to the redshirts: In a future where everyone is supposedly equal (heavy emphasis on 'supposedly')...and goodwill is supposedly the norm or, at least, championed...I would think that life would be considered precious.
Please explain how viewers making jokes about redshirt deaths has any bearing on how much the people who live in a fictional universe value life. Life is considered precious there...just as it's considered precious here. But the value of the lives of fictional characters can vary considerably in the real world.
It's been explained in the past couple of postings. And, it's already been established there are different opinions on death and 'redshirts.'

Re: The Redshirt Myth?

Yet you've still on two occasions phrased your view in such a way as to suggest a blurring between how fans react to onscreen deaths of minor characters and the lofty standards of the fictitious future setting.
