    Explain your choice in your post.
    Myself, TNG.
    Killed on the Enterprise fighting a Borg.
    Or Climb into the reactor to carry out some critical repair like Spock does in Star Trek 4?
    (also part of a Star fleet exam for Commander rank, but that's beside the point - you must command the engineer to enter the reactor to his own detriment)

    Would you prefer death on Voyager under Captain Janeway?

    Or maybe be a body shield for someone else like 7 of 9

    Killed on DS9 fighting the Dominion. Or from a dodgy drink at Quarks.

    Killed on that holiday planet from a heart attach from too much pleasure. Risa?

    A nice clean bat'leth decapitation when the Klingons attacked DS9.

    Commander Eddington: Lt. Evade here's your phaser rifle. Take 10 waste disposal maintenance crewmen and defend the secondary shield generator.

    Lt. Evade: Sir!? I'm a Xenoentymologist.

    Eddington: And a Starfleet officer. No go defend the secondary shield generator from a race of warriors that are bigger stronger and faster than you.

    Evade: *sigh* Aye sir.

    (Technically I would be a blueshirt but, eh)

    @OP Why not add Voyager and Enterprise to your post option's and you might get more answers?

    Me killed on the Enterprise NX-01 in The Expanse fighting the Xindi but not before I got three of them first by using my phaser as a granade.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

    It would be a simply beautiful death to die as a redshirt on a Star Trek Music Video like the Picard Song and Star Trekking across the universe,

    preferably in Picard & Data by Pogo

    Name: Adam Jenson
    Rank Lt Cmdr
    Death 2375
    Location: AR558 Chin'Toka System
    Details of death: Lt Comdr Jenson Fought the JemHadar, Killing several with his bare hands. The Vorta, who observed this, demanded that Jenson be captured, due to his obvious strategic knowledge on the Starfleet encampment. Unfortunately for the aforementioned Vorta, Lt Cmdr detonated a hidden Phaser, which he had rigged to overload, just prior to being captured, and hidden safely enough that the JemHadar did not detect it. The Vorta, along with half his column were killed, or severely injured

    Posthumously awarded promotion to captain; also awarded Hero of 558 Campaign medal (with oak leaves and swords); Christopher Pike medal of Valor

    CLASSIFIED; Secretly resurrected by Director Sloan of Section 31, to aide in the defense of the federation. Killed Sloan in 2376, and took command of S31 - Whereabouts currently unknown - Last seen entering the vicinity of the Romulan Star shortly before super nova
