McCoy's daughter: why...

...did she never even get a mention or appearance in the movies? There's been "subspace chatter" about her for decades. She supposedly exists, but would it have been wise to establish her, as 'Tiberius' finally was, or 'Hikaru'?

Heck, even Admiral Nogura is pretty well-established and spoken of. You'd think that the offspring of a major character would at least rate a photograph on a desk somewhere.

Captain Kirk's brother had been dead for a while in the original movies timeline. In the current timeline, he ran away.

Re: McCoy's daughter: why...

McCoy's divorce, a huge part of the character in fanon and the expanded universe, was only made canon in the '09 movie. At this rate his daughter should get a mention by 2026.

Re: McCoy's daughter: why...

She did at least get a name check in TAS: The Survivor (although not by name, McCoy simply says "my daughter").

Apparently even after she was removed from The Way To Eden, plans were still in place to feature her in a fourth season story if TOS had got another year. Alas it was not to be...

Wow I never heard about Joanna marrying a Vulcan! Imagine McCoy being presented with a half Vulcan grandchild. I remember there's a reference to TNG era McCoy having great great granchildren.

Re: McCoy's daughter: why...

^I'm talking about the first Marvel Comics title based on the 1979 movie, which follows from that movie. The comic you linked to is a later comic book from the 1990s line of comics licensed by Paramount Pictures and is a different story.

As great as that would be to happen, unfortunately, it's not canon.

I was referring to a different story from the 1979-1981 comic book published by Marvel; the one you mentioned is from the 1990s books that were published by Marvel, but were licensed to Paramount Pictures as Paramount Comics (it also spawned a team-up book between the X-Men & the TOS crew called 'Star TreX'.)

Re: McCoy's daughter: why...

Canon schmanon, whatever. That's a pretty un-fun attitude. I count the spin off media as soft canon, and where they contradict too hard, then I just think of them as seperate but equal alternate realities.
