Re: Rolling Stone Magazine makes a case for TNG to return to TV
Not sure I get the aversion to aging. I don't think Frakes is too old at all. Think about all the older captains and admirals we've seen on Trek before. I would love to see him in the captain's chair.
Sure, Data presents a problem because he's not meant to age. But Riker is meant to grow old.
I think they could work around the Data aging thing. Maybe he just decided to alter his appearance for whatever reason. He did try having a beard.
