One possibly relevant and possibly not question: how does one get around the seeming paradox of a powerful Metallic being quite old by humanoid standards, yet not having pre-Gap memories that would break campaign secrets like the fate of Golarion? Of course, for many if not most campaigns this simply won't matter -- the PCs will have better things to do with their time and energy than chase down rumors like that, and their draconic patrons will most likely have more pressing concerns. But if it does occur to players to think "Say, the dragon's really old -- maybe she'll know!", how does a GM respond, especially in a way that doesn't especially annoy the dragon (you don't want to annoy dragons -- trust me on this).
The gods, every single god, have agreed to swear to secrecy the fate of the Cage, only that it is safe. Long lived races had their memories wiped. Of the cage.. of X number of years around that time.. ect.

Note, this only applies to memories of the events *during* the Gap. A sufficiently old dragon could have pre-Gap memories just fine, and it wouldn't break anything. Though the Gap is supposed to be several thousand years long, so I don't think any normal dragons live that long.

Will a dragon EVER die from natural causes? Are there even natural causes for a dragon? Does a dragon ever even get sick?

(And now I'm imagining Billantrix with a cold sneezing cones of ice everywhere, leaving the crew of her ship with problems (and needing to severely bundle up to avoid catching colds themselves).

Am I the only one who imagines larger dragons with space-ship scale power armor?

I can see magic items forged by terrestrial dragons that allow them to traverse and fight in space.

Likewise, I hope future products include outer dragons that can fight in starship combat just as well as they can in normal combat.
