Re: Did TNG's Early Scope Shrink?

There's no evidence that such an intention existed. Early promotion for TNG emphasized that technology hadn't advanced so much as attitudes/social conditions. The transwarp thing was just name-dropped in III to make the Excelsior seem like the next big leap forward. Fans invested a lot into the concept at the time, but it was never explained in the movies and was ignored in TNG, leaving offscreen sources to speculate that transwarp had been a failure.
