How is it that when the Enterprise travels at warp 10 they're completely fine (minus the millions of lightyears out of their galaxy) but when Tom Paris kidnaps Janeway and goes to warp 10 they both become lizards?


Damn Galaxy class starships.

I would assume that The Traveler allowed the Enterprise to travel outside normal space-time, avoiding the usual side effects.  It's possible they were traveling through subspace rather than normal space.  Subspace has not expanded as fast as normal space, but exists in the same relative position.  Relative to normal space, you would be going faster than Warp 10 (but not infinitely faster.)


I've only seen the Warp 10 episode of Voyager a handful of times, so I don't know the particulars.


Voyager has some of the best Trek episodes, but certainly has one of the worst.

when did the enterprise travel at warp 10 on it's own?

Velocity is distance over time. So, going through the bajoran worm hole would take you past warp 10. However you don't experience the effects because you are in an area that operates under different rules. The key is the means of movement between the two points that determines the effects.

that's how they bypass the light speed problem as well.

Worst episode ever!


*shrugs*


It's strange, being a catalyst for things that move outside.

It was a dumb episode to me. I remember being so excited for it and then feeling let down because like many VOY trailers, the hype was not the same as the actual plot.

The interchange between Janeway and Paris at the end, though, was ROFLs. He apologizes for getting her salamander self pregnant then she retorts that she may have initiated. So Paris was the only crewman to sleep with Janeway.

if you take out the turning into a lizard part I actually think it's a pretty good episode.

The TOS Prise did. But their measurement system was off and they changed the speed scale for TNG.

How do the borg manage not to turn into lizards when they travel at trans-warp speeds?

Transwarp conduits which are like artificial worthiness
wormholes. Different methods have different rules.

Transwarp creates a special time/spatial bubble around the ship.  This bubble protects the ship from the side affects of going Warp 10.  It's also one of the reasons why the Borg can travel through time.  The Quantum Slipstream drive acts more on a principle of a Space Flexure (wormhole).

Is it me or was Voyager the only ship in Star Trek history to go beyond warp 10 and not get blown up?


I'm thinking of the episode the Gift when Kes pushed the ship out of Borg space.


I was just wondering.

The Enterprise D went past warp 10 when Q flung them into the Delta Quadrant to show them the Borg
