Capt. Kirk's Place of Burial

Since Picard buried Kirk on Veridian III in "Generations", wouldn't Kirk deserve a more respectable resting place for burial than on top of a cliff overlooking a canyon on a remote planet? Say at Starfleet Command where he could be buried with full Starfleet honours and a memorial? Or in his hometown of Riverside, Iowa? Kirk deserves better!

You kidding? That's a cool burial spot. And will probably be the site of a memorial later.

Kirk was happy where he was. He had been dead and memorialized to the rest of the universe for nearly a century. I believe Picard out of respect, knowing he had disrupted Kirk's joy by coercing him back into action, left him in peace on Veridian III.

At least give him a better tomb. A couple coyotes could get inside that pile of rocks in under two minutes.

Kirk already died and got the full memorial-service treatment a hundred years earlier when the bit of the Enterprise-B he happened to be standing in got blown up. I'm sure there was a ceremony back in Iowa or San Francisco with plenty of pomp and circumstance -- not that that sort of thing would have mattered much to Kirk.

I think the burial site on Veridian III was really cool and perfect, for the occasion.  Later, probably, Starfleet might transfer his remains to a more permanent tomb, either there or back on Earth.


Did he have any surviving relatives, in 2371?

Maybe there would be the children and grandchildren of his nephew, Peter Kirk. http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Peter_Kirk

Indeed Jim Kirk couldn't have a better tomb buried by Picard, and probaly it was his second death after he died on the Enterprise-B. That was alike him when he saved the ship to be inside the Nexus where Guinan also used to be.

To me it seems the Prime directive mandates the removal of his body from that planet

I agree with this.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?
