Re: Your own personal continuity

A few more brought to mind by previous posters:
  • Rear-Admiral Kirk was not Commandant of Starfleet Academy, he was merely the Dean of the Academy Command School, which is why he oversaw the Kobiashi Maru test.
  • Transwarp is a generic term for anything that travels faster than current warp engines. The 2280s Transwarp Project was not dealing with radically new technology, just a massive upgrade to the old style warp engines that would allow travel at twice the old speeds. The project was not a failure.
  • The 1701-A started life as the NCC-1798, built as the first test-bed for the transwarp engines that would later be used on Excelsior. The Constitution-Class space frame was not strong enough to take full advantage of the new engines, so the NX-2000 was built specifically to hold the more powerful engines. Later she was christened USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A in honor of the recently scuttled 1701.
