Silly bit of Star Trek trivia

So, we all know that in TOS having a redshirt(and not being Scottish) when on Kirk' away team was seemingly a death sentence.

However, according to Memory Alpha, the first on screen death(episode 5 "The Man Trap"), and the first on-screen person McCoy declared dead, was Crewman Darnell, who wore Blue. Crewmen Sturgen(Blue) and Green(Gold) also died in this episode...

No Redshirts were harmed in the making of this episode(that I can find evidence of)

    Hmmm, apparently

    55 crew members were killed in the series, of which 40 had known shirt colours. 24 (60%) were wearing red shirts, compared to 9 in gold shirts, and 7 in blue shirts.[4] Most casualties were security personnel, whose uniform was red.[5]

    A red shirt meets a Stormtrooper. the stormtrooper fires 50 shots, missing every time. the Redshirt dies anyway
