Instead, he dies from a bridge collapse with a guy he's just met on a planet no one knows about.
Just pretend the real Kirk died saving the Enterprise B, and the one that got out with Picard was a echo/duplicate version of the real Kirk. Remember Guinan's echo in the Nexus? That is how I choose to interpret it to wave away the stupid death scene.

I like that idea! I think I'll use it.
Seconded. That's quite a neat explanation, and is fully consistent with what we're presented with on screen (the Guinan-echo introduces Picard to Kirk, but she never specifies that Kirk is any more 'alive' within the Nexus than she is).

The nexus is a very weak story device, isn't it? :facepalm:
