04:59 pm - Memorials and tombstones
Right now my Starfleet insignia sits on my tomb, a pile of rock on a distant planet. I died performing my last duty... saving the Enterprise, Picard's Enterprise, from destruction.

Which is what I was doing when I died the first time, saving the Enterprise. I suppose Bones and Scotty must have memorialized me then. Then I arrived in the Nexus and for the first time in my life (or death) I put duty aside, until Picard. He needed me to help him save the Enterprise one last time. And I died, separated by time and space from everyone who had mattered to me before, except my Enterprise.

So, my insignia is a fitting tribute, and perhaps, the only one I require.

The insignia on top of a pile of stones might be the only 'physical' memorial, Sir, but there is a far greater memorial to you, in the hearts and minds of every cadet that passes through Starfleet Academy.

You're one of the leaders of the past that we all aspire to be like, Captain. There can be no greater memorial than that...to inspire others to greater hights.
