Default How long do you think Seven of Nine lived for?

Being part Borg do you think her life span would have equalled a Vulcan's?

I don't think so. Those nano-probes might do the trick and improve her health or repair damaged issue, but as longevity is irrelevant for drones (ants live for a few years, bees live for a few weeks), a Borg drone, respectively an ex Borg drone, might have a smaller life expectancy than that of a 24th century human (150 years?).

I would say her Borg implants and nanoprobes would make her lifespan greater than that of the average human. Medical science and technology have advanced to the point that many humans live past 100 years, if not most do. The 150 year life span for humans thing is probably only a few record cases. My guess is Seven easily lived to see 150.

I don't think she lived longer, but shorter. See, as she "grows" to be "more human", her body starts to reject her borg part. As there is no currently known technology to remove the implants, I think she did not make it to live very long.

Unless...something else

According to what?

Books don't mean anything, although I think some of them should! If any new made for TV movie or cameo appearance ever came out with Seven of Nine, then the onscreen story would override anything in the books. I'm not sure how the books finally resolved this issue, but I did NOT like the fact it seemed janeway was killed off.

I haven't read that yet!! Thanks for ruining it!! I'm just kidding. I figured some sort of "Trek" explanation would come about.

I won't get into the "for me" canon argument. Generally, it is accepted that the books, which there are many, are NOT "canon". If you thought onscreen Trek was bad when it comes to inconsistencies, the books are even WORSE!!! Either way you look at it, if anything is ever done for TV or a movie that shows Seven of Nine with full Borg implants at the age 150 while the rest of the Voyager crew are either dead or nearly dead, then THAT would be canon. That was my original point.
