Under normal warp situations, no. The Enterprise -D coould to to warp 9.6 and stay there for 12 hours. Here is the info from Memory Alpha:

The Enterprise had a maximum sustainable speed of warp 9.6 for twelve hours. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint") In 2369, the ship generated about 12.75 billion gigawatts of power, simply while in orbit of a planet. (TNG: "True Q")

Now when outside forces are in play, like the Traveler's accident in the TNG episode "Where no one has gone before", the Enterprise - D pasted warp 10.

Not in NextGen, but in VOY, apparently going warp ten does strange things to you...

There comes a time when the odds are against you and the only reasonable course of action is to quit... That's when you turn to Star Trek.

The USS Enterprise 1701, under James T. Kirk, went past warp ten at least twice. No one de-evolved or had really strange things happen to them.

The Voyager episode where they break the Warp 10 barrier ("Threshold") is quite possibly the worst piece of dross ever written for Star Trek. It makes "Spock's Brain" look like Citizen Kane.

The 1701 exceeded warp 10 on the old warp scale. Once TNG premiered, the warp scale had been re-calibrated, with Warp 10 as an "infinite speed," and apparently unattainable.

Vger23, hear hear about "Threshold" man! That had me confused about Warp 10+/Transwarp etc for ageees!!! I HATE that episode, and I don't say that too often about Star Trek eps.


Now, Warp 10. They probably do at some point, I know in Season 1's "Where No Man Has Gone Before" the Traveller sends the Enterprise way past Warp 10 and in "All Good Things..." they go Warp 13 (I believe) but that was in an alternate future.

There was alot of things about TOS and the original movies that didn't make any sense. They didn't actually start focusing on the Science part til TNG. In the Undiscovered Country I can remember a part where Sulu said they were in the Beta quadrant and would be back to the alpha quadrant in a couple hours. weird.....

Oh Snap.

Maybe that was the edge of Beta near Alpha

well the Romulan and Klingon Empires are in the Beta Quadrant and earth is in the dead center of the border between both alpha and beta quadrants.

Tom Paris (on Voyager) was the first person tho reach warp 10. Before that there was only warp 9.75.
