    I'm just curious about who in the star trek universe made it past 100 years old. I know Spock, Tuvok, Bones, and Guinan make the list but who else had there centennial (at least)?

    I don't think Scotty counts, he degraded but didn't age in that TNG episode.

    Scott was still chronologically over 100 years old, if not physiologically so.

    Also, add Sarek. He made it past 200 years old.

    Q is reportedly over 5 billion years old. I doubt anyone else (except other Qs) comes close to that.

    Flint was 6,103 years old as of "Requiem for Methuselah." If you count preserved disembodied consciousnesses, Sargon, Thalassa, and Henoch were over 500,000 years old.

    Yeah but those kinda cheat. They were either in suspended animation, are omnipotent, etc.

    Sarek was well over 200 when he died.

    I think Khan and his crew make the list too. Amelia Earhart, Fred Noonan, John Evansville and the '37s made it by alien means.

    Kang, Kor, and Koloth were all in the neighborhood of 120 at the time of Blood Oath.

    The Dax symbiont is somewhere in the 200 - 300 age range.

    Phlox was born in 2070, making him the earliest-born of any Star Trek humanoid main character.

    Do years in stasis or suspended animation count ?

    Suspended animation is cheating but I guess it counts.

    Yep it counts as age is measured from the year of birth.

    But we also have

    Gillian from TVH
    The three people in suspended animantion from TNG's "The Neutral Zone"
    Khan and his augments
    Kor
    Kang
    Koloth
    The Albino

    The Great Link?

    Q's son from VOY's "Q2" is omnipotent so in time should reach well over 100 years.

    When I think of the oldest characters in Star Trek, Grand Nagus Zek comes to mind.

    I know Zek has been doing his job for 85 years but I wouldn't be surprised if he was under 100. I have a feeling Ferengi age poorly.

    Zefram Cochrane was over 230 years old in TOS thanks to the rejuvenating effects of the Companion.
