ENJOY and may the Force be with you, always… or at least until 12.18.15!
STORM TROOPERS = RED SHIRTS
If this reference makes you smile, it’s because you know that Storm Troopers in the Star Wars movies are as likely to be killed as the red shirted security officers in Star Trek. If you’re in a red shirt, you’re likely not going to beam back to the Enterprise with the rest of the command crew. If you’re a Storm Trooper going up against a poorly trained rebel battalion you are, inexplicably, a terrible shot and cannon fodder.
Don’t believe me?
Count how many Storm Troopers die in the clip below. This video shows all the deaths in the original trilogy in under 3 minutes. There is a heavy preponderance of Storm Troopers.
