Did he lack stamina?

I mean, did he lack stamina by dying so easily?

Re: Generations - Kirk's Death: A question of stamina?

But he died too quickly. This is usually the case when a person is feeling a little less energetic and more world weary. Perhaps the whole mass of recent events were taking their toll on him? Perhaps it was all too much? In a sense, he gave up in a moment of un-Kirk like resignation.

Baloney, certainly, illogical though that is.

Re: Generations - Kirk's Death: A question of stamina?

I think it was more a lack of a good script, rather then stamina.

At any rate Kirk had been, moments earlier, chopping wood. After which he bolted off to ride a horse, so it didn't seem as if his stamina was lacking in any way. Picard could barely keep up, and he survived the whole incident.

I am not trolling here, so don't get the wrong idea but perhaps if the rocks were rubber like from the original ST, he would have survived?

Let's see...Kirk's death a lack of stamina...rubber rocks...what color socks the TOS characters wore.

Nope, not trolling at all.

If this is a troll-attempt, it's not a very good one.

Re: Generations - Kirk's Death: A question of stamina?

When Picard is standing over his grave at the end, I'm sure he's thinking:
"Should've gone back and got Sulu instead. He had his own sword for a start!"

I'm sure Picard didn't exactly mentioned all the events of fighting Soran to Starfleet.

"What's that Jean Luc? You used a wibbly wobbly timey wimey rift to go back and get James T Kirk to help you? And he just happened to die before you could prove that to anyone?
Yeahhhhh....ok, see you next time.
*Presses communicator* Hey, Admiral? Yeah about giving the next Enterprise to Picard as a gesture...might wanna re-think that..."
