It is popular fanon concept that Exelsior's transwarp drive experiment was a failure. However, is there any actual support for this? From Wikipedia: It was also my assumption that this was pretty much the point of the transwarp. All warp factors instantly accessible. I don't recall them ever needing to accelerate to reach specific speeds in TNG, except when those velocities were extremely high, and barely within the capabilities of the ships engine's. Also, this new warp technology would lead to reconfiguration of the warp scale, which, as far as we know, could have taken place in late 23rd century. Any huge holes in this train of thought?
