- Hi new member here. The Excelsior Transwarp
experiment failed due to Scotty tinkering around in the
works. I think transwarp drive did work out soon after
that. I remember seeing some ship schematics that had
ships max speed around warp 14 and such (noncannon
specifications). The Warp speeds used in TNG and TOS are
differant. Picards Warp 9 is alot faster than Kirks warp 9.
I think it was the TNG tech manual or the ST Ency.
that metions the speeds being revised, but it didn't
say why they were revised.
