    Story
    (5178)

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Ken says: "It's all about the codas"
    "Entertaining, but doesn't develop well"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Redshirts to be better than the print version?

    Wheaton's narration is great, I enjoyed the audio production


    Would you recommend Redshirts to your friends? Why or why not?

    Overall I would recommend it, because the story is interesting enough, but it won't stay in my mind for long. The codas were overly long and unnecessary.


    Have you listened to any of Wil Wheaton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is similar to Wheaton's over performances.


    Any additional comments?

    Some interesting treatments of the ideas, but best suited to a short story.
