Re: Scaling the Excelsior Filming Model

I always rather liked Graham Kennedy's explanation of at least Federation Transwarp drives being ones that allow the use of peak transitional thresholds that exist beyond current subspace. (Hence factors like warp 13 in All Good Things...)

Curiously we also know that the Voth have some form of transwarp, and they explicitly switch between transwarp and standard warp speeds, which suggests at least, scientifically it's supposed to be something that's not entirely compatible with standard warp drives. (That sounds more like Quantum Slipstream though...)
