While talking to the Abby, the Phantom mentions that she's in her late 20s. By the time that NCIS (the original one) started Abby had already worked there for a little while and had obtained both a bachelors and a masters degree prior to that. On average it takes 4-5 years to obtain a BS and another 3-4 for the MS. This would mean that upon getting her MS she would have most likely been between 25 and 27. This episode was released during the 7th season of NCIS. That means that Abby's age has to be at the very least 32 during this episode (unless she was a prodigy who graduated early). See more
