I was more upset about loss of the Enterprise-D than Kirk. I think it was because for a long time, I thought really only McCoy and Spock were the only members of the TOS gang still alive during TNG (with Scotty added after "Relics").
A big problem I had was that blowing up the Enterprise-D and killing Kirk in Generations
invalidated two of the best entries in Trek, TUC and "All Good Things".
Many people expected TUC to be the last time we saw Kirk and the Enterprise-D would have much more adventures, but we were in for a rude awakening!
