Most people, even ones with a Geek score as high as mine, would accept the perceived wisdom that wearing red shirts in the original series of Star Trek was dangerous. If someone in a red shirt beamed down to a planet with Captain Kirk, they had a high chance of dying. However, someone has carried out full research on the subject.

There is one aspect of the research which leads to a survival strategy for those red shirts; the chance of dying is less if Kirk has a relationship with a female. Given the ease with which these encounters happened, all you need to do is find a female the moment you land on the planet and introduce her to the Captain.
