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

It seems Alexander was qualified to be a soldier at eight'ish in "Sons and Daughters" - even though the Age of Ascension ritual supposedly takes place at 13-15, as per "Icarus Factor". So Klingons at least appear fine with having kids at menial work, and teenagers in responsible roles.

Dunno. Humans generally have historically been okay with placing impressionable teenagers in commanding roles and on the bridges of ships.
