Re: life-extension technology in Star Trek (or lack thereof)
I am still trying to figure out where I got the age of 200 for McCoy from. Oh Well. I have always seen the Doctor as older even in in TOS. Perhaps at 137, he really isn't that old. There was a book that gave the impression that he had a lot more years to live. But I think his life extension plan was similar to George Burns, lots of young women
