The Delightfully Inevitable Fan Video of “Redshirt” Featuring Star Trek Redshirts

YouTube Poster

Well, that didn’t take long at all. It was made by “Trekpropguy.” Nicely done, sir.

Also, because I feel like putting it on my own site, the video of my covering “Redshirt” on the ukulele. If you haven’t watched it, stay with it until the end of the song for extra silliness.

Yes, I’m a goofball.

Just a great day to have such two such wonderful posts… Thank you TrekPropGuy for the excellent video, and John, thanks for the awesome cover with Uke! I shall go forth smiling for the remainder of the day at least.

Those land worms’ll really sneak up on you…

It’s really a great song, so bravo to both of you! And it shows that it’s not always a good thing to be genre-savvy… I’ll be happy to have this running through my head for the day!

I do keep expecting the lyric to be “I look down AT my red shirt,” though. As I tell my students, a preposition is a powerful thing.

Okay, now I just have to wait for JoCo to let me give him money.

Chris G. – I have the perfect opportunity to say/sing
“They said this air would be breathable”.
I (and 2000 others) am moving into a brand new building this month – my first day is this monday.
We’re all tech heads of various descriptions so I think I’ll put the cherry on top and wear a redshirt as well!

Such FUN. Begs the question: Will there be a Redshirts ring-tone? Because my phone ringing to “They said this air would be breathable. . . ” would be awesome.

Have you all seen the new Redshirts game by WeaselPant Productions?
It came out end of April, and it’s designed by Skippy Schwarz, yes, that Skippy! If you haven’t read Skippy’s List: The 213 things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the U.S. Army, you owe it to yourselves.

I’ll bring my copy to Fandom Fest and maybe John will play a round or two?

The blurb goes: Everyone in the Galactic Space Corps knows that the most successful starship Captains go through junior-enlisted crewmen like a fat kid goes through cupcakes.
Assemble and lead an away team of heroic yet disposable characters at a variety of locations, such as A Strange Energy Field Never Before Encountered or the Planet of Beautiful, Utopian, and in No Way Suspicious Women.
Examine missions such as Kielbasa Maroon, Poke This Slime With A Stick, and Fix the Exhaust Port Before Some Redneck Drops a Torpedo Down it to determine the crewman with the very best chance to succeed. And then send someone else!

Chris G. @ 5:52 pm: Also: “They said this air would be breathable” is now my favorite workplace complaint. I’ll be looking for chances to use it. No one around me will get it, mind you, but I’m used to that by now.

Well, they’ve banned smoking in most workplaces, so you’ll probably have to wait until a co-worker farts. ;-)
