Trivia: Trip tells Malcolm, "if I remember my honors biology course correctly, your hair and nails keep growing for quite a while after you're dead." However, this is a myth and would never be taught in any biology class, especially in the future. Nothing keeps growing after you're dead, as the skin dries out, and the body decomposes, the skin retracts and just makes the hair and nails look longer. This is more likely a mistake, but since it's possible Trip isn't a biology expert, forgot his honors biology, or is just teasing Malcolm, it should be noted as trivia.

Question: Does anyone know how old Zefram Cochrane is or when he was born? He seemed pretty old in Star Trek: First Contact which takes place in 2063, and "Broken Bow" shows him still alive about 60 years later dedicating the Warp 5 complex with Captain Archer's father Henry.

Answer: Acording to the Star Trek Encyclopedia Cochrane was born in 2030. His warp flight was in 2063, and he himself disappeared from Alpha Centauri in the year 2117 at 87. Kirk met him on a planetoid in the Gsmms Canaris region in the year 2267 making him 237. The first episode of Enterprise is in 2151, so Cochrane was missing for 34 years by that time and would have been 121 at that time.
