Regardless, while you may be able to match velocity vectors with the Andromeda galaxy as a whole, you still have to match vectors with a target star in that galaxy and then a planet within that star system. How big a rocket are you up to now?

And hey, it was merely a thought exercise. I never said it was "realistic".
I rather like this thought exercise. It suggests a number of things that might make simulating Star Trek ship maneuvers a little more realistic.
