# 5 Inertia

Do you suppose there might be orders of magnitude more inertia to be overcome by the inertial dampers in going from say full impulse to warp 4, than in any turn a ship could make? If you answer yes to the previous question, then I suggest that my initial question is still in play. If you say no, then, why?

" If a starship turned without banking, the inertia would be less evenly distributed, with some parts of the ship experiencing more structural stress than others. " In this statement, are you suggesting that some parts of the ship are moving at different speeds than others in a turn? Honestly, not flaming, just curious.
