Did you see the test footage of McCoy for TNG? I wish they went with that instead.
Never saw that before, thanks. Yeah, that would've been better than the cross between McCoy and Doc Brown from Back to the Future.
I recall reading that the makeup in "Encounter at Farpoint" was based on what was used in "The Deadly Years".

That test footage looks like De with gray hair.
Sort of, yeah. Remember that the McCoy we see in TNG is supposed to be nearly 80 years older than the McCoy we see in the movies! Some gray hair and a few more wrinkles isn't going to cut it.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
