Re: Federation Law of restricting cloaking device

Random point:

Although looking a second time, it seems that this "9.975" speed is quoted from an alien species (2371) and Neelix but haven't found one from an actual crew member...
The two quotes for warp 9.975 are from "Caretaker" and "Relativity" - both by Starfleet personnel (helm officer Stadi and CO Janeway, respectively), and both before the ship set sail for her very first operational mission.

In the first episode, the expression used is "stable" or "sustainable" (the delivery is a bit unclear, even if the script intent is for the second expression) "cruise velocity"; in the second, "top cruising speed".

I can't recall where the Species 8472 or Neelix would have referred to the warp 9.975 capability.
