Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers
That's very interesting that you say that. It seems to me that whenever people talk about how in Trek dead doesn't mean dead, they ignore that fact. When I count the times that a character in Star Trek has actually died and returned from the dead, I count two.
Scotty was killed by Nomad in The Changeling
and then brought back to life by the probe.
