    The book Ashes of Eden is the first of the Shatnerverse series, it details his last adventure before being lost on the Enterprise B

    A part I liked in The Return was that Spock was going through Kirk's files and compiling a list of all his enemies and then through facts and logic was whittling it down to the ones that most likely would have had the means, and motivation and sheer hatred of Kirk to wait over 80 years to attack Veridian 3 and steal his body.

But it was the Borg who resurrected him right? I didn't know it was after 80 years. Do bodies not rot anymore?

    I don't remember the full list, but the Squire of Gothos and Harry Mudd were on it and some others.

Wouldn't Mudd be 150 years old by then?

    Ryker pointed to an entry and said "Khan's dead". Spock said "I know" but did NOT remove Khan from the list.

    Against all logic, Spock left a minor probability of Khan somehow being alive as he knew the threat of Khan very well.

Well I always thought Khan could have been reborn on the Genesis planet like Spock was. Was there ever a book that explained what happened to the planet after Star Trek III? Sure it tore itself apart, but it was still a large planetary mass. Did it ever settle down again or just remain a giant volcano forever?

I think there were some TNG novels that dealt with th Genesis wave from the reiliamt explosion traveling through space.

The planet however was destroyed.

The boeg allied with th grand daughter of the romulan captain from Balance of Terror, her family was disgraced by Kirk's victory and she wanted revenge on Kirk, th Borg wanted a weapon to destroy Picard.

So the Borg used a literal Dues Ex Machine to revive Kirk after they attacked Veridam 3 to steal his body. Spock was there and he maintained that for years he always sensed Kirk was alive, even then.

So he went through Kirk's list of enemies to figure out who would have the motivation and means to wait for any mention of the return of Kirk.

Kirk's return and subsequent demise had not yet been made public knowledge so Spock figured it was one of Kirk's old enemies
