I was going through my script and realized I never wrote an exit from this scene for No Face. So I let Mara at him, and he is now dead. Kinda anti-climactic for him. Oh well. Not everything can be epic.

Scientists have determined that if you watch The Wrath of Khan and this back-to-back — the weighty theme of death culminating in Spock's death versus the vacuous nature of Kirk's here — that you are in serious danger of getting the bends and should seek out the nearest decompression chamber.
SFDebris on Star Trek: Generations

Grandma got run over by a... plot contrivance.
The Nostalgia Chick, The Christmas Shoes

Bridge on the captain!
William Shatner, after filming his death scene in Star Trek: Generations

It was a script typo. We accidentally wrote: Killed by ‘Bridge on Kirk’ instead of ‘Kirk on the Bridge.’
Brannon Braga (Yes, it's his fault.)
