    In Home Is The Hunter, which is set shortly after TMP, Ensign Garrovick gets killed - and then he's a major character in In The Name Of Honor, set after TFF.

    Also, T'Pau's been resurrected a couple of times, hasn't she? Because I seem to recall her presiding over Spock and Saavik's wedding in Vulcan's Heart...

    "Muahahahaha!"

    Martok doesn't have any surviving children, no, but Worf does, and he's part of Martok's House. And conceivably (ahem), Martok could have another child.

    The mirror universe versions of Spock, Marlena Moreau, Uhura, and possibly Sulu were killed in The Sorrows of Empire.

    Well there are laws saying you can't kill people, so I guess fictionally is the next best thing :rommie:

    Oh you devil you! Martok gets laid! Or ... Alexander becomes chancellor sometime in the future. :p

    Anyway, when i read about Shakaar's death, i was really shocked at how he died. I understand that he had to die; he was infected with those damn parasites. As for Drex, he died as a warrior.

    Why would that happen? "Reunion" and "Tacking Into the Wind" made it clear that in the 24th century the chancellorship is not inherited....

    But this means that Alexander will most likely be the head of the house of Martok at some point. Provided he survives, of course:klingon:

    I kinda hope he does end up with an heir, and not a terrible one. He seemed like a good guy, both as a Klingon and just in general, loyal and fair.
    And the poor guy has been through so much! :(

    Well considering the Borg are gone he could always get killed in the possible choas resulting from the various Delta Quandrent species fighting for the now vacant top position if that makes you feel better

    The offspring of Janeway and Paris I killed was named Neelix. Close enough?

    "Home is the Hunter" is a post-TMP novel that begins with the death of security chief Garrovick, and Kirk blaming himself for the man's demise. Many years later, along came "In the Name of Honor", set post-ST V, IIRC, and Garrovick has been a prisoner-of-war for many years. (As DGCatAniSiri has already pointed out.)

    One of DC Comics' first post-ST II comics killed off Kang (or was it Koloth?). He was also bumpy headed, with no explanation. I think, at the time, it was the first TOS tie-in death of a canonical character. Then, many issues later, he was back, again with no explanation.

    And in the similarly titled DC graphic novel Debt of Honor, Garrovick is also shown to be alive in the TOS movie era.

    It was Koloth, and he apparently died in issue 2.

    And the "explanation" favored by Roddenberry was that Klingons had always had bumpy heads and TOS simply hadn't depicted them accurately.
