# 1 Quantum Slipstream Drive
04-12-2011, 02:54 PM
Hi All,

I STO once you reach the level of Vice Adimral you unlock the ability to use quantum slipstream which should shorten your travel time but I swear when you use quantum slipstream you don't travel the fast. Should the speed inrease, the warp factor says it gone from warp 9 or if you use the borg updates from warp 14 to 20 but the speed is hardly increased that much.

When you are puttering along at maximum war and get passed by someone like you are sitting still, you will notice the difference in speed.

That being said, it isn't that much faster than the Borg engines.

When I see one of these run by me, it looks like they are doing Double or more than what I am.

With the borg engine u seem to move cover more distance then slipstream and with slipstream it only lasts about when 30/20 secs.

The Borg engine is only available by completing the STFs at VA I believe. So it is a technically higher ranked engine than the Slipstream.

Close its when u reach RA. When u reach VA u get the slipstream drive which u can go warp 20, with the borg engine it warp 14. Even after putting the two together it still seems with the borg engine u travel alot faster. Maybe its just me thinking once u reach slipstream it will look cool.

if you need to get somewhere fast within your sector slipstream (a short bust of warp 20) is better. if you need to fly though a couple of sectors the Borg engine (a sustained warp 14) is better.
so its how you use them. still id argue that the Borg engine is better because it's benefit is always active...

True. Has there been any news of any improvements? Slipstream looks like its Hyperspace travel from stargate and transwarp is more like wormhole drive. lol

Well, ultimately, I don't have an issue. I use the Excelsior which gives me a Transwarp to every sector block and almost everywhere I would need to go is within a slipstream's reach of the transwarp in point.
