    Throw some wildflower seeds out in your lawn and you will have a meadow you won’t want to mow.

    According to the Star Trek episode writer’s guide for The Original Series, warp factors are converted to multiples of c with the cubic function v = w3c, where w is the warp factor, v is the velocity, and c is the speed of light. Accordingly, “warp 1” is equivalent to the speed of light, “warp 2” is 8 times the speed of light, “warp 3” is 27 times the speed of light, etc. Plots involving the Enterprise traveling beyond warp 10 were once in the original series (such as warp 14.1 in “That Which Survives”), but for The Next Generation it was decided that these would no longer be featured. A new warp scale was drawn up, with warp factor 10 set as an unattainable maximum. This is described in some technical manuals as “Eugene’s limit”, in homage to creator/producer Gene Roddenberry. Warp 8 in the original series was the “Never Exceed” speed for the hulls and engines of Constitution class starships, equivalent to the aircraft VNE V-speed. Warp 6 was the VNO “Normal Operation” maximum safe cruising speed for that vessel class. The Warp 14.1 incident was the result of runaway engines which brought the hull within seconds of structural failure before power was disengaged.
