Well in terms of space it's the Ent-D. It travelled to another Galaxy some 2.7 million light years away which makes Voyagers trip of 70 000 look like a walk across the road.

Re: Ship that's travelled the furthest?

I wonder if the OP took some perverse pleasure by framing the question as which ship went further, rather than which ship went farther. Enterprise-D traveled the greatest distance from Earth. However, temporal and extradimensional travel could be more extreme voyages, even if they lie adjacent to our space.

ETA: A few trips through the Bajoran wormhole would easily eclipse the distance traveled by USS Voyager.

Lets do the maths on that, as Geordi said it would take over three hundred years to get home, logically that means less than 400 as the line wasn't almost 400 years it' must be closer to the 300 hundred mark.

So we are talking in the region of 7000-9000 light years per year. Of course the Galaxy had a slower top speed than the Intrepid Class So Voyager's trip home could have taken around 10 years.

Re: Ship that's travelled the furthest?

I just chalk it up to Star Trek writers not being very good at math.

But the whole thing about a wormhole is that the distance through them is shorter than the distance going "around" them.

The impression I received from DS9 is that the distance through the wormhole is relatively short, maybe only a small number of miles.

Define small. It takes a matter of minutes to travel through the wormhole to reach the Gamma Quadrant.

Re: Ship that's travelled the furthest?

^Well that would be measured in kilometere's not miles. But enough nitpicking.

As you say a wormhole acts as a shortcut between two points, so the actual distance travelled is the length of the wormhole regardless of the actual physical distance.

Then shouldn't the journey in "When No One Has Gone Before" be reconsidered? According to the Traveler, it was not just a journey in spatial terms, but also cognitive and temporal dimensions. The physical distance might be much larger than the path taken to reach that point.

I'd have guessed that except that we don't know where V'Ger came from on its trip back.

--Sran
When did V'Ger become a Starfleet ship? The OP is which STARFLEET ship traveled furthest.

Not the point of my post. I was merely making the observation that V'Ger probably traversed a distance that would put even the Enterprise's exploits to shame.

Doomsday Machine was also extragalactic, even though Peter David changed that backstory for Vendetta if memory serves.

I can't remember if he did or not, though novels aren't cannon.

If the novels do count, Titan should get a mention for reaching the Magellanic Clouds (160,000-200,000 LY).
