Re: Quantum Slipstream V.S. Transwarp

Why not?
Being everywhere in the universe at the same time opens up pretty big possibilities.
Paris could have brought back a virus he picked up from phenomena that Federation would begin to dream of for the next thousand years.
Or simply could have been in a part of space that affects Human physiology in the way it did with him.
Coupled with effect of infinite velocity, it's possible this interaction and a combination of factors was precipitated in Paris 'evolving'.

TW as the Borg use it is actually quite similar to the QS technology as it was explained on-screen.
I would surmise BOTH are aspect that remove a ship from being able to interact with the known universe as Warp would allow.

TW that was achieved by Paris is a completely different beast apparently that the Borg never achieved.
And it's possible that the Voy and later on SF adopted a different explanation for what TW stands for.
We are who we choose to be but also have predefined aspects of our personalities we are born with, and make art that defines us.
