But Picard didn't die. Kirk did, in a movie with this quote. And then Janeway returned in a book with this quote. It's a dovetail, a teaser.. and you know what, I think it is there just to test the waters. To see if the readers actually care.
You know what we need to do?
We need to start a CAMPAIGN.
Bring Back James Kirk
IT"S THE SAME LETTERS, BUT WITH THE INITIALS REVERSED! Lets do it!!!
