How do people move faster than my 9.97 warp ship?

    I see people flying past me through sector space in STO. Yet I have a 9.97 warp singularity core.

    I've seen on forums all these people talking about warp 12 or warp 13, but I can't find any vendor that sells anything above 9.97.

    How do I get a way faster singularity core?

    Fleet Starbases for example, I believe?
    Also at some point you unlock a temporary Transwarp Boost which maxes out at Warp 20 or so. It’s usually enough to last through an entire sector then goes on cooldown.
    A bit fuzzy. It’s been so long

    Transwarp in STO can take you to Warp 30.

    Oh yes I am aware of slipstream travel. I meant just the normal warp drive. I see people going way faster than me in normal warp even though I have warp 9.97 engines. I mean STO warp works on a linear increasing warp value, so warp 8 is twice as fast 4. So these people would be going at least warp 15 it looks like. Yet I can't find any engines that say they go above 9.97.

    Geez that one is even faster. Is that available for Romulan Scimitar?

    I notice is says they are impulse engines. So does that mean once it is equipped, and I have a warp 9.97 singularity drive, they then boost that value to 14 and make the warp core go quicker?
