Added DiffLines:

* Happened twice in ''Series/{{Glee}}'':
** Jean Sylvester, Sue's sister and a recurring character, dies off-screen in season 2 (''Funeral'' dealt with exactly what you think it did). The actress who played her was diagnosed with Alzheimer and was no longer able to work.
** Even more of a TearJerker and a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming was ''Finn Hudson's death''. The character had been PutOnABus at the end of Season 4 due to his actor having gone to rehab, but Cory died in between seasons due to drug overdose. Season 5's third episode, ''The Quarterback'', is a heavily emotional tribute to him. Since Finn was the show's deuteragonist, he wasn't forgotten after this episode. On the contrary, he was remembered until the very last moment.

** Spock Prime finally does die between ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' and ''StarTrekBeyond'', with young Spock finding out about the news from envoys of New Vulcan, which prompts him to consider dropping out of Starfleet. This bus crash was necessitated by Creator/LeonardNimoy's death.

* The actress who played Marla [=McGivers=], Khan's lover from "Space Seed", was not able to appear in ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'' due to multiple sclerosis destroying the use of her legs, so she was killed offscreen by the [[BrainSlug Ceti Eels]] to explain her absence. This makes Khan's desires for revenge more believable. Rather than simply wanting revenge on Kirk for "You defeated me," it becomes "You killed my wife."
* And rather more infamously, Picard's brother and his family are ''burned'' to death offscreen at the beginning of ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'', just so Picard can be properly tempted by the Nexus. Goodbye to that optimistic episode ending about his nephew hoping to join Starfleet!
* One of the major fan complaints about the ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot was the implication that the time-travel shenanigans in that film had done this to the ''entire original timeline'' (with Spock Prime being the only survivor). The ''Star Trek Relaunch'' series of novels shows that the Prime continuity still "exists" as a separate timeline. Because time travel is funny like that.
** There are clues in the movies to this effect, Scotty's exile posting being due to a transporter experiment causing '''Admiral Archer's''' dog Porthos the Fourth to be beaming.. somewhere. Scotty says he'll be fine when he ''eventually'' rematerializes. (The novel of the movie has this happen on the Enterprise bridge in the epilogue.) On the face of that alone, it's clear the reboot is happening in the near-parallel timeline established in ''Series/{{Enterprise}}''.

* In ''Machinima/RedvsBlue'' the last time we see Sister is at the start of season 6. Later in season 7 when Lopez shows up, he claims to have killed her before leaving Blood Gulch. Grif doesn't believe it, but Lopez gives no indication that he is lying.

** Turns out to be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], as the second to last episode of Season 13 reveals that Sister is still alive and well in Blood Gulch. Apparently, Lopez only choked her until she passed out, which Sister recalls as being "[[TooKinkyToTorture kinda hot]]".
