    Whenever there's some new guys on the away team or at the helm they are always killed off somehow. Do you guys notice this too?

    It's funny. I haven't noticed this and I've been watching for thirty-eight years! :p

    Nearly 48 years since the show came on the air and we never noticed!

    . . .

    Of course we noticed. Hence the "redshirts" meme.

    How many helmsman bit the dust? Name one.

    And they weren't Away Teams. They were Landing Parties.

    :)

    If so, a mod should issue a priority one spanking.

    That's the word I was thinking of. And Gary Mitchell was the helmsman who died, though not on a landing party!
