As one who is younger than all those you mentioned, but only by a year at most, it is a wonder to me what a person can call old. Age is a state of mind. Another wonder to me on Star Trek (pick your flavor), beyond no one ever getting promoted, is the inability over hundreds of years to get reliable video from any away team. Sure we can use sensors over thousands of parsecs and tell you if there are any humanoids within x number of light years, but we can't transmit video a few hundred miles! Love the show, but sometimes ya gotta wonder.
