Redshirt is a term used by fans and staff of Star Trek to refer first to the characters who wear red Starfleet uniforms, and secondly to refer to those characters which are expendable, and quite often killed off, sometimes in great numbers.
As noted, the Wrath of Khan losses were all redshirts, but the TNG losses were more varied, but continued their pattern of conn officer attrition.
However, the first known redshirt death on DS9 came when an unnamed officer was killed in ops by the Cardassian counter-insurgency program.

Uhura; since there were no regular characters in the security department, the appearance of any such character in an episode was strongly suggestive.
