holy **** was he really? Patrick Stewart wasn't that old was he?
No. Patrick was only 62 at the time (born July 13, 1940). Picard was born in 2305. Nemesis took place in 2379. Humans live longer in the future. Picard was the Ambassador to Vulcan until 2402 (age 97). Admiral McCoy visited the Enterprise D when he was 137.
there are far better cast members they can bring into the game.
If you read any of the Destiny books or any of Ezri's new novels, you'll see she's a pretty strong char now. I think she played her role fine, she had one season to show she was green, she had no time for char development.
