At the end of Star Trek: Generations, Captain Picard constructs a makeshift grave out of stones for Captain Kirk, who died helping Picard to stop Dr. Tolian Soran from destroying the Veridian system.
Was the burial only symbolic, or did Picard arrange for one of the starships picking up the Enterprise D crew from Veridian III to also retrieve Kirk's body?
Kirk was a Starfleet legend, and so a burial on Earth — with Starfleet brass and Federation dignitaries present — might have been in order.
Did this happen, or was Kirk's body simply left on Veridian III?
Since there is nothing further in the films or any of the television series about this (at least not that I can recall), any relevant information from the extended universe is welcome.
