Re: where no one has gone before?!?!

In Q Who the Enterprise was 7000 ly away and it would have taken them two and a half years.

In Voyager they needed to pick a time frame that seemed like a lifetime so they were happy just dividing by 1000.

But, according to technical manuals published in the TNG time frame, 1000 times the speed of light is warp 8, and that's always been treated as the sustainable cruising speed.
