For most lifeforms, death is a permanent state. However, sometimes resuscitation is possible:
  +
*''In [[2259]] of the [[alternate reality]], {{alt|Leonard McCoy}} used {{alt|Khan Noonien Singh}}'s blood to revive a dead [[tribble]], and then {{alt|James T. Kirk}}, who had died from [[radiation poisoning]] after reactivating the {{USS|Enterprise|NCC-1701 alternate reality}}'s [[warp core]].'' ({{film|12}})
  +
*In [[2267]], [[Montgomery Scott]] was killed by the [[Nomad]] probe. Nomad subsequently "repaired the unit Scott". ({{TOS|The Changeling}})
  +
*In the same year, [[Leonard McCoy]] was killed by a [[Black Knight|knight]]'s lance, in an environment that created reality from people's thoughts. McCoy's resurrection was brought about by the power which created the knight in the first place, after Kirk realized what was occurring. ({{TOS|Shore Leave}})
  +
*In [[2285]], [[Spock]] experienced death, but with his ''[[katra]]'' having been placed into [[Leonard McCoy]] and his body regenerated on the {{dis|Genesis|planet|Genesis Planet}}, he was able to live again. ({{film|3}})
  +
* [[Tasha Yar]] killed [[Yareena]] with a poisoned, spiked weapon. Dr. Crusher revived her. The details of how exactly this was achieved weren't described. ({{TNG|Code of Honor}})
  +
*The [[Kobali]] were capable of reanimating dead lifeforms in order to [[sex|procreate]] their [[species]], however the reanimated corpse would have a limited memory of his or her true life. ({{VOY|Ashes to Ashes}})
  +
*[[Species 149]] were medically advanced and had the ability to reanimate the dead. They were assimilated by the [[Borg]], allowing the Borg to reanimate a [[Borg drone|drone]] as much as 73 hours after death. [[Neelix]] was also brought back from being dead using this technique after [[Seven of Nine]] proposed it as a medical treatment, but as his death did not match his culture's beliefs regarding an afterlife, he was profoundly disturbed by the experience. ({{VOY|Mortal Coil}})
  +
*[[Data]] noted that his off-switch provided for an experience comparable to death, albeit one that permitted a simple resurrection. ({{TNG|The Schizoid Man}})
  +
*In [[2369]], upon his death, [[Kobliad]] criminal [[Rao Vantika]] [[synaptic pattern displacement|transferred]] his [[consciousness]] to [[Doctor]] [[Julian Bashir]] and continued living in Bashir. ({{DS9|The Passenger}})
  +
  +
{{bginfo|In the novel ''[[The Return]]'', Kirk is brought back to life by the Borg and the Romulans following the events of {{film|7}}.|In the novel ''[[Before Dishonor]]'', Admiral Janeway is assimilated by the Borg to become a new Queen and her ship is subsequently destroyed in a confrontation with the ''Enterprise''-E. However, her existence is saved by [[Q (female)|the female Q]], who allows Janeway to exist in the drawn-out moment between life and death until '[[Q (Junior)|Junior]]', although forbidden by Q law to bring Janeway back to life himself, indirectly 'teaches' Janeway how to put her body back together, with [[Kes]] subsequently restoring Janeway's body to its most perfect state, in the novel ''[[The Eternal Tide]]''.}}
