    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    I would agree with you as well.

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

    And Kirk's Enterprise, which ended up in the void between unknown galaxies (in another universe, no less!) in Chain of Attack.

    If you do that for wormholes, you must do that for warp and all other FTL systems.
    The distance traversed by a ship at warp, being space-time bent by warp engines, is far shorter than the unaltered space-time, for example.

    By this criterion, a ship which used conventional engines to circle the solar system travelled more than ships that reached other galaxies, etc.

    It's obviously the Enterprise - D. Remember the episode in the first season called "Where No One Has Gone Before", the Enterprise went out of the Milky Way.

    The USS Enterprise D from The Next Generation I'd have to say traveled the furthest away from sector 001 (Earth) It was catapulted 2.7 million light years to the M-33 Galaxy. Later, while attempting to return back to the Milky Way Galaxy, the Enterprise instead traveled to end of the universe, a billion light years away. This was accomplished by an Alien named The Traveler because his name was unpronouncable. It was season 1 episode 6. This would also cover time and space questions because The Traveler used time, space, and his mind to travel. In the end Wesley Crusher helped The Traveler to return the Enterprise to the exact place and time they left from. Crusher received the active rank of ensign for his help in that.

    Acting ensign.

    Also goes to show how useless voyager was at making progress!

    In the first episode of tos Kirk left the Galaxy and returned. By the end of season 3 they'd certainly put a fair few miles on the clock.

    In episode 6 of tng Picard left the Galaxy and came back, at least 6Mly.

    In the first episode of ds9 sisko does about 130k light years in a runabout, and by the end of the first season had done over 300kly on the runabouts.

    In voyager the did 70k in episode 1, and then another 140k in futures end, and a total of 70k before endgame. Total 300k.

    The outright winner though would be the shuttle pod data and Geordi used in "the price", given that it also went to m33 and the edge of the universe with the enterprise, but also did a quick jaunt to the delta quadrant.

    The Delta Flyer traversed every point in the universe at once. Doesn't that count?

    First of all, welcome to the board.

    We generally ask that people don't resurrect dead threads over a year old, especially to post an answer that's already been given. The last reply to this thread was 2 1/2 years ago, so let's let it rest.

    If you find something you want to discuss, and there's been no thread on it for 6-12 months, go ahead and start a new one.

    Thanks.
