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

The thing is, McCoy at 137 doesn't seem to be making any records yet. In "To the Death", O'Brien says he wants to die in his bed at 150, indicating that 150 is the new 100 - theoretically attainable, and serving as the very definition of a life not shortened by disease or accident.

McCoy is probably just dying young because of all the ailments he has caught from his adventures...
