Re: Fantastic artist's representations of interstellar spacecraft

Thank you. so as the ship approaches the speed of light the dilation increases? Just out of curiosity how did Trek address this issue when ships were traveling close to light speed but at sub light speeds but at impulse as they approached the speed of light? Especially where their "warp field," was disabled? Wouldn't they also face the dilation

I'm guessing they did not. Nonetheless it's a problem with super fast speeds created in the real world because the people traveling at them wouldn't know anyone when arriving at their destination who was living when they left.
