Star trek: redshirt’S little book of doom
A mildly amusing Star Trek gift book!
Features 55 different single-image cartoons, drawn by Austrian self-confessed nerd Anna-Maria Jung.
They follow the daily disasters and misfortunes of a hapless redshirt.
Maybe this is bloodthirsty of us, but it’s a bit disappointing they don’t all end in a violent death…
Most of the mishaps are much more low-key, like putting a red shirt in your whites wash, or forgetting to lock the shower door.
Writer Robb Pearlman clearly knows his Trek, but some of the topical gags (like one about hipsters) are a bit wince-inducing.
Best bit: repeated appearances by a cutsey cartoon Gorn. Give him his own spin-off book!
