IDW Ongoing Comic Comparison: The Redshirt's
Every series needs its "Lower Decks", where we witness events from
the point of view of the lesser-known but still important people.
In this episode of Standard
Mike and Drew talk about the IDW comic that tells the story of "The
Apple" from the point of view of the redshirts. This issue lets us
know what the rest of the crew feels about everyone's rushed
promotions at the end of Star
but more importantly, how important redshirts are for a ship to
function. We also talk sports mascots, both real and fictional, how
the uniforms of background characters may actually be different
from the "hero" uniforms, and ponder what sort of Thanksgiving is
actually celebrated in the future.
