Okay, i have max points spent in Driver Coil which increases my warp speed in sector space, yet i can only max out at 9.41, why is that? I would like to hit Warp 10 and i thought maxing this out would achieve that, what else do i need?

What level are you? Your base warp speed increases with level, up to 9.97 at 50. Even with max driver coils, I think you won't quite hit warp 10 at very low levels.

Quite so.

Driver coil is a modifier of your highest warp speed *for your rank*, so you will never see Warp 10 until you reach one of the Admiral ranks, and you will never exceed it unless you have an engine that specifically allows it. (Borg Retro, Starfleet MACO, etc)

You don't quite have to be Admiral. I don't know when it ends up happening, but I know fresh Klingons can hit warp 10 out of the gate with less than 9 points in driver coils, and they get to space about level 21-22.

I stand corrected.

I could hit warp 10 with my 20lvl Fed. character, with Driver Coil maxed, and I think it was an escort. But then I reskilled my character, changed to cruiser, with Driver Coil at 0, and on 40 lvl I'm hitting about 9,5

Yes were all warping around at 20-30..... EXTREAM lame... don't even have to leave ESD (at VA you just TW back and forth to Ds9 to do your STF's Dailys and reruitment missions)... why bother with borg space....(killed random encounters.. made them optional).. why bother with sector space... WHY BOTHER WITH EXPLORING THE GALAXY, it's just trek nothing to do with exploring (sarcasm)... 1 click STF/PVP (combat).... Lame and getting lamer..... just Like How stupid WoW got when we could just click and raid (oldschooers will remember EPIC battles with the horde/alliance just to hold a summoning stone like Kara and earn the right to raid....and they spent YEARS building that world to be visually appealing)..... HATE IT. just gets weaker and weaker....


BAH!!! who in their right mind would want to boldly go... spend time travelling... just to see whats there??? certainly trekkers would hate that... Again (sarcasm).

STO shields are weakening....
Just give me a plain B&W Dos screen with the options

1. STF
2. ESD
3. Ds9

I don't need space GFX or anything (that would use memory better allocated to web surfing in the background well you wait for STO to be fun)... just give me white text on a black background and launch a raid/fleet action when available....

(yes loaded with sarcasm)


Freaking LIVE the journey for F's sake... instant Gratification is instant bored too.

I've been going warp 10 a few ranks now. Though it is a bit distressing to fly at infinite speed all the time.

Except, aside from the tech manuals, warp 10 wasn't infinite. All five series had examples of ships traveling at speeds of warp 10 to 16, Voyager even gave higher numbers.

If the scale in the tech manuals was ever actually used in the show, at Voyagers best speed the trip home would have been home in either a month and change or 3 years (depending on which of the conflicting formulas you use for warp 9 and above), not 77 years.

The Tech manual I have stated that the reason the Constitution class starship was able to achieve a higher warp factor than the Galaxy class was that the "math" behind the factors was changed and if the Constitution class starship was the star of TNG it would be unable to go faster than warp factor 10.

I can post word for word what the warp section of my tech manual I have states if anyone interested.

I agree that there have been examples of ships being flung faster than warp 10 but by the tech manual I have apparently the math changed and that no starship as of TNG was able to achieve warp factor 10 on its own. Power consumption would increase out of control the closer you got to 10 to infinite.
