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

I think there was aline where Dr. Crusher talks about humans losing fear of death. Add ecological concerns, a humanist worldview that de-stresses an afterlife--that may be more liekly with psionics that exist (katra) so life-extension beyond a certain point seems greedy.
