Re: 70 years to the Alpha Quadrant?

In one of the old tech manuals I read, warp 8 was about 1024c. The old tech manuals also seem to say that power usage is about proportional to speed, so even if they could make the trip, they'd need to stop to recharge at about the same distance intervals.

Now, why they couldn't just go warp 9.9999 instead of warp 10 to avoid the nasty devolution effects -- but that episode probably shouldn't be thought of as canonical.

Anyway, on Voyager you can lose 20 crew members and still only have 10 less people in your crew, so it's clear the show exists in a universe where the rules of mathematics function very differently.
