How old was she in Enterprise and if she had lived long enough would she have been around when Picard was captain of Enterprise D?

There's an episode in the 3rd season where she reveals that she'll be 66 on her next birthday. Not sure about your second question.

T'pol was 65 Earth years old during Season 3 as she mentions to Trip after he had accused her (jokingly of course) of looking old that she would be 66 Earth years old on her next birthday.

According to memoryalpha T'pol was born on 2088 and with Vulcans having a maximum lifespan of just over 200 Earth years that would mean that if T'pol lived that long she would have been dead by the time of Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country and the launch of The Enterprise - B in Star Trek Generations.

So to answer your other question of whether or not she would have seen Picard no as she would have been 286 Earth years old by the start of TNG well past the lifespan of a Vulcan.

That didn't apply to Spock since he was around during Next Generation and up before he time traveled back in time during the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie.

If Spock was in good decent shape during the underground Vulcan stimulant episodes for Next Generation then it could have been possible for TPol to hang around during or a little bit before Next Generation.

Hell, McCoy was really really old in the first episode of Next Generation and McCoy was still alive during one of those Next Generation novels that involved some weird magic jewel

I have got to ask, Have you ever watch Star Trek? Or read any of the characters biographies?

You really need to go here www.memory-alpha.org

Right here are the date of births for all characters:

T'Pol born 2088

Spock born 2230

McCoy born 2227

So as you can see there is 142 years between T'Pol and Spock.

According to memory-alpha I was right the MAXIIMUM Lifespan of a Vulcan is 200 years. Sarek (Spocks father) lived until he was 203 years old. Here see for yourself http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Life_span

So as you can see there is no way in hell T'Pol could see the TNG era as she would be 276 years old and 76 years past the maximum Vulcan lifespan.

With Spock being born in 2230 he would only be 134 years old by the time of TNG and theoretically live (barring being killed) live for another 66 years+ into the 25th Century.

Same for McCoy. McCoy was in fact the oldest Human seen in Star Trek. I too have read a book The Ashes Of Eden by William Shatner where Kirk, Spock and McCoy where alive together in the 24th Century

Yeah so what.

If McCoy lived a long healthy life where he was running around to meet Picard and Enterprise D, the TPol should have been able to at least meet Kirk once.

Spock cheated death too by the way in case YOU forgot.star trek 2 and 3 mean anything to you?

Of course it is logical to assume T'Pol would have been around to have seen Kirk after all she would only be around 178 years old by the start of Kirks first five year mission.The latest time she could have seen would have been around Star Trek IV.

To give you an example of how possible it is for T'Pol to have met Kirk in the season 4 Enterprise episodes The Forge, Awakening and Kir'Shara we are introduced to T'Pau that is the same T'Pau that officiated at Spock's Pon Farr ceremony in Amok Time. Although she is 34 years younger than T'Pol.

Did you know that Captain Archer saw the launch of The U.S.S Enterprise NCC-1701.

You need to remember that every life form in The Universe has a maximum lifespan which for Humans is currently around 122 - 125 years and for Vulcan's is around 200 years.

So for T'pol Kirk yes Picard not a chance in hell.

The only race that I can think off where it is possible for an individual to have seen both Kirk and Picard and to have been born a century+ before hand are the El-Aurians.

Wasn't Archer and even Pike captains of the 1701 Enterprise?

Kirk had Enterprise A. The original show up to Star Trek III.

Yeah I don't know where the insane idea that Vulcan lifespans max out at 200 came from given that Sarek lived 203 years and died of complication from an illness rather than old age. I don't think anything has ever set a max age limit on Vulcans.
The most devastating defeat is the one which comes when you have stood on the edge of victory.

I have got to ask, Have you even watched Star Trek? Holy Cow Batman you really do need memory-alpha don't you.

The Constitution Class U.S.S Enterprise NCC 1701 was launched in 2245 under the command of Captain Robert April. He was followed by Captain Christopher Pike who spent eleven years as Captain of the Enterprise before Captain James Tiberius Kirk lead it on it's historic 5 year mission.

It was then Captained by Willard Decker during it's refit before the start of Star Trek The Motion Picture and by Captain Spock when it was used as a training vessel by Starfleet.

It was destroyed by Admiral Kirk over The Genesis Planet in Star Trek III.

After what Admiral Kirk did during Star Trek IV Starfleet demoted him and put him in command of the newly commissioned Constitution II Class U.S.S Enterprise NCC - 1701 - A.
