Re: How long does it take to traverse the UFP?

I'd rather argue that those two things are the ones the most trivially compatible.

After all, TOS emphasizes that Kirk's ship can swiftly move from any part of the galaxy to another, sometimes within a single episode, and always between any given two. Going to the "rim" or "center" of the galaxy is something the heroes or villains can do on a whim, and indeed the only way to hold them back is to erect scary-looking Barriers... DS9 "Valiant" is automatically compatible with that, unless we specifically want to argue that Sisko's ship is markedly slower than Kirk's.

It's from random utterances in TNG and VOY that we might get the impression that the feat in "Valiant" would be difficult to pull off, even with a ship that wasn't reputed to be slow by 24th century standards.
