Re: 70 years to the Alpha Quadrant?
^Well the 3 years might be at a certain speed. After all a car uses it's fuel more efficently at certain speeds. As for fuel that's what the Busssard collectors to allow partial refuelling to take place whilst moving through space.
But for sure at times they just wrote what sound good. 4 billin miles per second sounds really fast, it's not until you actually work it out thats 21 000 times the light that you run into a problem. I.e at those speeds it would take Voyager about 40 months to return home
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
