# 1 Red Shirt Deaths
04-29-2010, 04:24 AM
At the start of some story missions have your crew beam down and an extra guy in a red shirt beam down with you, then have a scripted event somewhere near the start where he gets killed in a verity of different ways depending on the mission.

every time you see this extra guy, you know he's going to die, (just like the show) its just a matter of how and when

id love to see that

Two games did this, "Star Trek 25th Anniversary" and it's sequel "Judgement Rites". There was even an episode in "Judgement Rites" where a redshirt got on Kirk about all the redshirt deaths...

Basically in the plot of each episode there was a place where if you made a mistake your redshirt would die. The idea was to avoid it, as it affected your mission score.

If we ever got ground missions that didn't involve pressing running around and pressing F by shiny things or killing everything that moves, perhaps something like this could be done, except one of your boffs could "die" (be unavailable for the rest of that mission), etc.

Ensign Ricky...

The Redshirt's name should be Ensign Ricky.


When Ensign Ricky beams down with the party, you know something bad is about to happen. Be it decapitation, poison cloud causing his face to turn purple, or he may just touch a flower and explode...

Yes. This game needs more classic "bits".

We should also have the capacity to cause diplomatic incidents by engaging in sexual affairs with the natives. That may explain the excessive shooting

I vote that included with this is, when the red shirt dies, you should see a giant red shirt with the big ol' red circle/slash over it pop up on your screen. Cumulative for each and every red shirt you've gotten killed on that mission.

That would be great!


And they could use the announcer voice from Mortal Kombat; FATALITY!
