Star Trek „Red Shirt“-Statistics

Matt Bailey nimmt hier unter anderem das Phänomen des „Red Shirts“ auseinander.

What? You don’t know about the Red Shirt Phenomenon? Well, as any die-hard Trekkie knows, if you are wearing a red shirt and beam to the planet with Captain Kirk, you’re gonna die. That’s the common thinking, but I decided to put this to the test. After all, I hadn’t seen any definitive proof; it’s just what people said. (Remind you of your current web analytics strategy?) So, let’s set our phasers on ’stun‘ and see what we find…

The basic stats:
The Enterprise has a crew of 430 ( in its five-year mission. (Now, I know that the show was only on the air for 3 years, but bear with me. 80 episodes were produced, which gives us the data to build from.) 59 crewmembers were killed during the mission, which comes out to 13.7% of the crew. So, that will be our overall conversion rate, 13.7%.

Data Segmentation:
However, we need to segment the overall mortality (conversion) rate in order to gain the specific information that we need:

* Yellow-shirt crewperson deaths: 6 (10%)
* Blue-Shirt crewperson deaths: 5 (8 %)
* Engineering smock crewperson deaths: 4
* Red-Shirt crewperson deaths: 43 (73%)

So, the basic segmentation of factors allows us to confirm that red-shirted crewmembers died more than any other crewmembers on the original Star Trek series.

However, that’s only just simple stats reporting – ready for some analysis?

    So schön aufgebaut und dabei die wichtigste Frage vergessen. Wie viele Prozent der Manschaft tragen ein rotes Shirt?

    Waren die Rot-Shirt-Träger nicht die vom Sicherheitspersonal? Is ja klar, dass die gefährlicher leben als zB der Koch oder der Holodeckreiniger.

    Naja kommt drauf an in welchem Jahrhunder wir uns befinden.

    Im 23. Jahrhundert tragen die Sicherheitsoffiziere noch rote Uniformen. Ab dem 24. Jahrhundert tragen sie gelbe Uniformen. (memory alpha)
