OK, maybe Klingons have an extremely long lifespan that I don't know of, but it seems to me that Arne Darvin would be far too old for this to occur. He was obviously an adult in "The Trouble with Tribbles", but he was still alive more than 100 years later in "Trials and Tribble-ations". He didn't seem 100 years older; maybe 30. Can anyone shed some light on this? -Platypus Man | Talk 03:33, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Well, from the trends we have seen humans definitely live shorter lives than most other species (we have seen Vulcans, Bajorans, Trills, and Klingons all over 200 years old). Kor, Kang, and Koloth all appeared in the 24th century, and did not appear extremely aged, nor were they young in TOS. We can assume that Klingons just age slower, or that there bodies don't fall apart as much over time. Jaz 04:08, 28 Sep 2005 (UTC)
And yet Alexander Rozhenko grows to adolescence in about... what, six? seven years? --The Rev 06:08, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
So Klingons mature quickly, there planet rotates faster. Within one Human year Alexander was three Klingon Years old. I hate defending DS9. --TOSrules 06:21, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
We're talking about a warrior culture. Its advantageous to grow to maturity as quickly as possible, and then to retain experienced veterans to pass on their knowledge for as long as possible.The preceding unsigned comment was added by Regulation Bowling Alley (talk • contribs).
@TOS, defending DS9? TNG started it, Alexander looked about 3 years old even though he would have been born about 1 year before that. TJ Spyke 02:54, September 11, 2010 (UTC)
You're responding to a four year old post from an editor who has been inactive for about three years. Don't you feel special now. --OuroborosCobra talk 04:03, September 11, 2010 (UTC)
