What's "wrong" about it? Was it wrong to kill Ben Kenobi in Star Wars?
He was old, real old. It was a tiny bit wrong to kill off Qui Gon though because he was a great character and much hotter than most of Star Wars.

Was it wrong to kill Boromir in LotR?
No because Tolkien did it 48 years before the film came out.

Was it wrong to kill any of the innumerable characters in Lost who died?
That was the only thing that kept that show remotely interesting.

And really, the question to be asking here is "Was it wrong to kill Kirk?"
Re Boromir, why are you assuming I'm talking about the film rather than the book?

I disagree with regards to Lost, but oh well.

It wasn't wrong to kill Kirk...the idea merited consideration, it was the execution that was somewhat lacking...but even then at least what we got was better than what we might have gotten.

Anyway, "wrong" is a silly word to use in this case.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
