    For what creatively witty (G rated, or R rated) serious or humorous
    reasons, do you think it'd be a bad idea to get beamed (via a transporter)
    onto anywhere (from a Star Trek ship) in either the real world, or the
    Star Trek world, in a red colored only Starfleet shirt ?

    Well, I guess getting beamed into the middle of a bullfight is not such a good idea. :lol:

    Hah, that was my knee jerk response when I read the OP's post.

    But I would probably vote that it would be pretty crappy to get beamed into Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-78 while wearing a red shirt. :rommie:

    Beaming into that ambush in "Last of the mohicans"might be a bad thing dressed in red..

    Well, it pretty much but hazardous to beam down in any hostile environment other than Mars since red isn't really a good camouflage...

    I just bought the blue uniform t-shirt to wear to the gym. I'm convinced if I had bought the red I would die in a horrible treadmill accident.

    Being part of the Red Army during any battle. Die if you go in, die if you try coming out.

    A peaceful valley in a remote area...cos you know they'll be a devastating earthquake generated by a local sentient computer to keep the valley free of invaders.

    1) It has been theoretically proven that red dye causes painful death.
    2) Never beam to Pamplona, Spain during the running of the bulls in a red shirt.
