Re: Excelsior Technical Manual - Revived!

OK, the last paragraph. If they traveled at high impulse, from the crew's point of view (due to time dilation) they would have less time to prepare. Also, the time required to intercept using impulse as opposed to the faster warpdrive would, from the rest of the universe's standpoint, be longer. Hence V'ger would be closer to earth. So how is it in anyway an advantage for them to intercept slower AND have less time to prepare?
