Are speeds reported correctly by the throttle slider?
 
This has bugged me for some time. The reported speeds on the speedometer report several lightyears a second in sector space, but looking at systems (which I assume are stationary) I don't think I see the numbers change that fast.

Is this a known bug? Is that even a bug at all?

Don't know... Never noticed it before

An interesting fact:

According to the maximum speed of the slider in Sector Space, Voyager could have returned to Earth in under an hour. :p

Yeah, my speedometer usually says something like "25.6 Ly/Sec"...well there are systems that are about 5 LY away...I should be there in about....instantly.

When in reality...I'm moving toward a system, the system is closing from 5 LY...it takes me at least 20 to 30 seconds to get there. In reality to the game, I'm going more like 0.16 Ly/Sec. So...I would guess it's probably off by about a 100 factor (at least 2 decimals). I would like the speed to be displayed just above or below the throttle bar permanently, instead of having to hover over it.
