If the pictures are 40 years apart in that universe then Spock has been riding hard ...... Too much Romulan ale or something.

Yeah, I was pointing out (for the younguns) what 40 real years look like on a real person's face. You know, youth and beauty don't last forever. Deep stuff like that.

I know, it's pretty much wasted around here.

I wonder how Old Spock will be like. He seems to have grown more human in his later years, at least if we take his last two performances in TUC, "logic is the end of wisdom, not the beginning", and his irrational desire to reunite Romulans and Vulcans in "Unification".

2260s and 2380s, so, actually about 120 years apart. Vulcan lifespans are around 200 years and I think Spock was supposed to be about 40 during TOS. That would put him somewhere in his 150s or 160s or so.

Even if his human side limits his lifespan, this is a reasonable age for Spock. (If his Vulcan lifespan genes are dominant, then he's about 3/4 the way through a normal 200 year-lifespan.)
