Would it have hurt the writer of 'The 37's' to take a few seconds to do a calculation before blurting we go "four billion miles a second!"?
Well, pretty much any usage of real distance units would muck it up since it's all "speed of plot" anyways.

Should they have just said "It'll take us 75 years to get home" and left it at that without saying how far away they were in LY units?
