^ That would make sense, too, I suppose; I was motivated mainly by the the complete absence of any mention of the term (until Descent, IIRC), coupled by Scotty's implicit assessment that the technology—as implemented on the Excelsior—was bunk.
I never really got that vibe from Scott. I think it was more a "resistant to change" mentality coupled with Styles being a complete asshole as far as the Enterprise speed records were concerned.

Scott would've had to have had a hand in the development/implementation of transwarp at some point or else he would have been totally unqualified to be chief engineer. In my opinion.
