How long had Scotty been on Delta Vega? He could have been there a while close to decade. Yeah, Jothan Archer would STILL be very old. But people are assuming Scotty was just sent there. Even if Jonathan Archer went on to be a Federation President or an Ambassador he would have used used his Starfleet rank while teaching at the Academy.
I'm pretty sure Scotty says he's been on the planet for 6 months. I agree about the rest, though.
