STO is not Massive with heavy Instancing. By shunting people to so many instances they make it feel decidedly un-massive imho.

Um no. Full Impulse isn't speed of light. That is warp one. Full Impulse speeds have gone up over the course of the 23/24 centuries. Full Impulse during the ST:TMP was roughly 33 PSL (Percent the Speed of Light). By the time of Voyager Full Impulse was 80 PSL. (Voyager ep. "Timeless").

I believe when you see 10.0 km that its a place holder. They are always dealing with enormous distances in space so it would be clearer and easier to read and computer is 10,000 km read as 10km or something to that effect

Yeah, it's probably just dumbed down so the officers can read it faster.

Unless you need a very specific reading, 10kk is much faster than reading 10,283km.

Just like how the Prometheus class weighs almost 4 billion pounds, they're not going to want to know the weight in pounds, but more like metric tons in millions. AKA, 1.7 million metric tons. 1.7 MMT.
The Enterprise -D can fire a Phaser with roughly 1,400,000,000,000,000 watts, but do they really set the strength using that scale? Nah, 1.4 petawatts is good.

It is an MO, as in Multiplayer Online, but I definitely wouldn't classify it as Massively Multiplayer.
