You Can Be A Red Shirt In Star Trek

By Josh Tyler | 9 years ago

Personally I’ve always wanted to wear Captain Kirk’s gold shirt of command, but like any good Trekkie I’ll take just about any opportunity to hang out on the bridge of the Enterprise, even if it means I end up as a quickly killed red shirt. For one lucky person, that dream could become a reality.

IDW Publishing and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund are offering the cover of an upcoming Star Trek comic as a prize, in their new contest. The winner will be drawn as a red shirt crewman on the cover, and as red shirts so often do, be quickly killed off in the pages of the comic.

Want to enter? Here’s how you do it:

To enter the “Be A Redshirt” contest, fans must e-mail their explanation in 300 words or less about why their retailer is the best to IDW at with the subject: Save My Retailer. The winning fan and their retailer will be depicted on a limited-edition variant cover of STAR TREK. This special cover will be limited to only 300 copies: 100 each to the winning fan and their retailer, plus 100 to CBLDF to help them continue the important and challenging work of defending retailers everywhere. The winning fan will also receive the original art, by the Sharp Brothers.
