It's still odd that the crew of one ship, none of whom are full time research scientists and have limited time and resources, manage to pull off such a major scientific and technological breakthrough.
DESTINY. Janeway, fixed point in time.
Why was Kirk there for so much key crucial shit? DESTINY. Not everyone gets to do this.
Honestly tho all this warp 10 stuff falls into the category of stuff only nerds like us care about. What's special about Threshold is that it manages to be awful on several levels, ie newt sex.
The newt sex was awesome. But I understand if not everyone is up to it.
