Yeah I've been thinking about the aliens, if I remember correctly they are pre-warp, so any rescue would actually go against the prime directive. So my question is, is that what we are doing? Or are the aliens being attacked by a warp-capable species? Or are we going to help them clandestinely?

I was thinking they were warp capable once upon a time. Some sort of calamity struck and they lost use of most of their tech.

Oh okay, that sounds interesting too. Perhaps sudden environmental climate change...scorched earth...rather appropriate!  :D

FYI Being a stickler for mathematical correctness:

The 8.9 light year journey would take 3.236363636363636 days.

Top speed of Federation vessels is 2.75 light years per day, which equates to 1000 times the speed of light.

Just sayin'!  :D  =/\=

That's fine. :) I'm actually glad someone was able to put in the effort and figure that out for me. Anyways, we'll be doing a time jump.

One further note, this mission will continue into March.

That's understandable given how long it has taken for us to get this far!  :D

BTW anyone can post for the CSO, being an NPC. I would like to concentrate on Inzjana a bit, I feel she's still not what I want her to be.

Sorry, lol, I cheated because I'm lazy and used awarp calculator. Out of curiosity, are you basing your calculations off the TOS speed? It's very similar to your top speed if I choose that criteria, but I originally chose the TNG criteria which is apparently faster...?

Also, I'm going to wait to see what your laser message says before posting any details, lol, don't want to spoil your thunder!

Tag to both Adeyemi and Alex

With your suggestion, Admiral, and if I recall a bit of history, Ds9 used rivers as names for their runabouts.  So I called yours Liao.

Not a problem Alex. Actually instead of using a calc and reading the Warp Factor charts on Memory Alpha I went by Gene Roddenberry and Star Trek Voyager. Roddenberry didn't want the TNG vessels to travel any faster than 1000c as the top speed, for some reason. Also in VOY the Intrepid Class starship, which was the fastest at the time was 70,000 light years from Earth and a max warp would take 70 years to get back. 70,000 divided by 70 equals 1000. So in one year Voyager can travel 1000 light years. Meaning its top speed is 1000 times the speed of light. 1000 divided by 365.25 equals 2.75. So Voyager can achieve 2.75 light years per day.

Although many fans and the later Technical Manuals would say other wise, they really didn't work out a true speed when at warp in TOS, therefore there were many instances where the origin Enterprise was actually much faster than the Galaxy Class, but this has largely been ignored/over written by fans and later franchise works. It wasn't until TNG that Gene really said "this is how fast they can go". Michael Okuda did a wonderful job trying to maintain a form of continuity. Naturally it was largely ignore by J.J. Abrams who is a Star Wars fan and thought that warpspeed should be much faster than even the TNG era. Interestingly he probably has a point, for in physics, space does not have a speed limit, only matter and energy travelling through space has a speed limit. 300,000 km/s.
