Re: Was putting limits on Warp Travel a bad idea?

It wasn't a bad idea in that it hurt the quality of the series, but it was a bad idea in that it was pointless.

Episode 7x?? - With Warp Limit

Captain Picard: Set course for Rigel IV. Warp 8.

Episode 7x?? - Without Warp Limit

Captain Picard: Set course for Rigel IV. Warp 6.

Yup, that sure did do a thing. The ships are going to travel at the speed of plot regardless of what numbers are thrown at us in dialogue, so I just don't get it. Silly analogy for environmental protection is silly.
