However, more Trek characters have come back to life in novels than onscreen.
Really? Onscreen we've had McCoy ("Shore Leave"), Scotty ("The Changeling"), Spock (The Search for Spock
), O'Brien ("Visionary"), and Kim ("Deadlock"). In fiction we've had Kirk (The Return
) and Tucker (The Good that Men Do
). I suppose you could make an argument for Sisko (Unity
). That still puts the screen stuff in the lead.
