Re: What were they thinking? AVENGERS style TREK
It turns out that the reason some people hated Generations
was because they didn't want to see Kirk die. It's kind of like not wanting to see Batman retire. Characters are supposed to eternally remain in some kind of status quo, I suppose. For my part, I spent the entire televised run of TNG wanting to know what happened to Kirk.
You get hurt, hurt 'em back. You get killed, walk it off.
