Anyone notice how old McCoy in TOS was so much more convincing than old McCoy in TNG?
Did you see the test footage of McCoy for TNG? I wish they went with that instead.

That is probably what they'd use today, since what the novelverse would later establish about the human lifespan - 100 is considered prime physical condition - would make 137 years not anywhere near as ancient as McCoy looked on TNG.
