Births and deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Janice Rand gives birth to a daughter, Annie Rand. Unfortunately, Annie died of an unspecified illness two years later, and Janice decided to return to Starfleet. Although the child's father was never known, Janice may have believed it to have been the evil transporter duplicate of Captain Kirk. [2][3]

Note: Date is pure conjecture. A high probability also exists that Annie's birth took place in 2267, as Janice Rand's last TOS appearance took place in 2266, with a few appearances in novels set in early 2267.
