Re: Why didn't they just keep their characters?

We saw how old McCoy was in "Encounter at Farpoint". Now you want Majel in old-age makeup, as Chapel, to be Troi's mother? Recycling old TOS characters for absolutely no purpose.
I failed to add the age difference between series one that one, mentioning it only because it was the same actress but funny you should say that.

I watched TOS' "Shore Leave" and came across a character they should have recycled. I think they should have used Finnegan instead of Hendorff in 2009's Star Trek. Finnegan could have been that bully that Kirk never gets to pin it back to, instead of a guy who gets killed by a flower in "The Apple".
