star trek IP is old. therefore their FTL travel theories are also old. ever look out the window when a ship is in warp, stars are just flying by, consider how utterly fast a ship is moving if a star <insert really big number> billions of AU'saway zip along at a diagonal view forward to a diagonal view backward it makes u wonder why they dont crash into planet if they werent able to fly right through them in the first place.

thats what old gene roddenberry was thinking about but the theory wasnt out yet and it was probably harder to show given they were working with models and cameras and not CGI than it was worth.
