Re: ST III's "Transwarp drive"
"Also keep in mind that the decree to declare Excelsior's transwarp a "failure" came from Gene Roddenberry through Richard Arnold. Whether that makes it "canon" is anybody's guess.
So that is the "producer's" comment on the transwarp issue?
If it's just a claim of Mr. Arnold, I feel entitled to take it with grains of salt, as I do still remember very well what Brent Spiner once said about Richard Arnold at a ST convention...
