Overlooked characters from Star Trek get their due...
22 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Enterprise is a big spaceship (Was it the size of a metropolis?) and so much of the legacy (ALL?) consists of the captain's log. What of the individuals among the multitudes downstairs? For those who live by the world according to Gene Rodenberry, the film's title, Red Shirts, may cause resonance. Being less corporate and more family oriented, at least in terms of '60's television, I was more Lost IN Space, but I understand now what it means for a crew member to be wearing a Red Shirt in a Star Trek episode...

Dry humor, realistically acted, and the tundra landscape is not to be missed.
