"Redshirt" is a Jonathan Coulton song written for the novel Redshirts by John Scalzi.

History[edit]

"Redshirt" was debuted on May 29, 2012 at the end of a two-week interview series with John Scalzi on tor.com called Journey to Planet JoCo.


Availability[edit]

"Redshirt" was first posted to YouTube. On June 2, 2012, JoCo added the song to his store.


Interpretation[edit]

"Redshirt" is a reference to the fact that on the television show Star Trek, minor characters donning red shirts were frequently killed off. The military theme of the song contributes to this interpretation.
