Re: Scaling the Excelsior Filming Model
I'm trying to think, is there ever an instance of the Enterprise-D or another 24th century Starfleet ship accelerating as we used to see on TOS? (TVH also had the bird of prey accelerating.)
I´m not sure if you still need another example here, but there is one at the very beginning of TNG when Q chases the Enterprise
in "Encounter at Farpoint". Upwards of warp 9.0 they keep accelerating and continuously call out the respective warp factors.
