Re: Extended Lifespan In The Trek Universe

Even today, different people age at different rates. Some people look old and decrepit by their 50s while others still look relatively youthful and robust in their 60s. And if future medical science improves longevity, then not everyone might benefit from the same advances.

Although as I see it, "Too Short a Season" straight-up goofed by ignoring the longevity increase implied by "Farpoint."
