I never thought Kirk's death was meaningless. He helped save an entire planet with a species incapable of defending itself. I can't remember how many people lived on the planet, but it was in the millions, I think.

Yet you'd never think that the way some people whine about it still endlessly after 15 years.

I don't see why he should die again.
One time is enough

Coz everyone does?

At least, if they kill him again Shatner might not be around to write a pathetic resurrection novel about it.

Yes, it was easily avoidable. When I first saw generations I thought "why didn't Picard just exit the Nexus at the point in time when Soran is brought on board the 1701-D, but PRIOR to him taking Geordi?" If Picard had done that he could have placed Soran in the brig, and given up all the details of the weapons lab. Easy. I guess that isn't dramatic enough

I think everyone was shocked because he left with no warning or explanation, and the fear was that he had defected.
That doesn't preclude the possibility of Spock being sent on an official ambassadorial mission to Romulus before Kirk dies on the Enterprise-B in Generations.

Anyway, this was a Spock centred movie, and having Shatner in at the end, or doing the voice over when he had no other role in the movie would have been way too corny.

I think the point NCC was making is that Kirk couldn't have known about Spock traveling to Romulus prior to his own "death" on the 1701-B. If that was the case then the news of Spock on Romulas in "unification" would have been rather old.
