Re: life-extension technology in Star Trek (or lack thereof)

Nano technology in TNG seems to be fairly new, also there is a prohibition on genetic treatment, so (separately) there might be restrictions on anti-aging.

Picard wasn't supposed to care about losing his hair, and according to Crusher people no longer feared dying.

So perhaps people in the 24th century simply lived out their time in this moral coils, and then philosophically accepted their own deaths when their time was up.
