Births and deaths
- On Veridian III, Captain James T. Kirk, recently retrieved from the Nexus, dies in his attempt to save the Veridian sun from Professor Dr. Tolian Soran. 
- Kirk's body is recovered by a Borg transporter within a period of time sufficient to allow the Borg to use nanoprobes and temporal displacement to regenerate his life functions, including his mind and memories. The Borg use their technology to mask some of his memory to allow them to manipulate him into working with a faction of Romulans that led the Borg to Kirk at Veridian. After Kirk breaks free of the Borg control, he leads a team of Starfleet personnel to attack a Borg complex, where he sacrifices himself to ensure the facility's destruction. 
- Kirk's body is again regenerated by nanoprobes after he is wounded and shunted through a Borg escape transporter. He awakens at a Borg "dump" where damaged drones are deposited. The nanoprobes in his body caused him to be automatically taken since he appeared to be a drone. Kirk keeps his rebirth a secret and journeys to find his lover Teilani on Chal.

- T'Pas dies.
