# 1 sector space speed hack?
12-02-2011, 08:37 AM
So today I was running the Tour the Universe and I ran into four different players that had a way faster ship than myself in sector space

Now I actually PM'd three of them (the other vanished before I could get a right click on him, had my view on chase) and none of them responded... so either they are all not very friendly (possible) or there is something going on.

I actually did some testing previously running the full lenght of the Omega Leonis Block with several ships and loadouts and never got more than a second or two (due to my timing) difference.

Does anyone know how to improve sector speed? I was under the assumption that it is the same for everyone but obviously it isn't.

And no, it wasn't Quantum Slipstream they were using, because when they used that, they went even faster.

And yes, I have 4 capped characters and been here since beta. That doesn't mean I know everything, or anything.

This may be too obvious, but what about the Borg Sub-transwarp Engines?

Odds are good that they were using the Assimilated Transwarp Engines, a purple item reward for completing the 'Infected' STF...

Some details from STOWiki: http://bit.ly/uY5dLE

borg engines sound the most obvious answer (keep in mind they can also hide the visuals)

I think that you get faster speeds as you level up, so if you are not VA, you will probably be slower.

Diplomatic immunity can increase warp speed (although I do not know if it increases it for a VA).

The Borg assimilated subtranswarp engines seem to be at least 20% faster than standard engines.

I'm betting on this, they increase your speed to warp factor 14.

Can't go warp 14 anything past warp 10 is impossible. Don't you understand physics. :p

Then I probably shouldn't mention slipstream drive is listed as warp 20... :p

Forget slipstream. Instant travel across the galaxy with Transwarp.
