He gets to invent warp drive, has a really interesting life, then gets lost in space, meets an alien entity that takes care of his every need and makes him young again, and then melds with a really cute chick and gets to finish out his remaining days in peace and comfort, with someone he loves and that loves him back. Not a bad destiny if you ask me. If I was captain, I'd order a double round of those shots McCoy gave the crew in "Wolf In The Fold", you know the ones that make Sulu not afraid of a Supernova?
