just wanted to know what are the fastest engines in sector space?
reason I ask is simple:
doing the tour the universe event I am noticing a lot of ships going really fast, faster than me and i'm doing 20.93 with 34.9 when diplomatic ammunity has been granted.
now how is this possible for other ships to just fly straight past me without them being in the quantum slipstream?
what would I need in order to fly faster?
my driver coil skill is maxed out.
would it be the new romulan reputation engines or something?
The two Minute cool down hinders the use of that. Quantum Slipstream only gets you about through at most two system blocks. You're stuck on "standard" warp drive for the next two minuets. You can get several sectors with that. Plus Quantum Slipstream doesn't allow you to turn, some sections you need to a nearly 180 turns, so you'll need to drop out for a few moments.
You can do the entire "galaxy" in 20 Minutes with time to spare. I think I managed it in 14 minutes and 45 seconds, with a Mark 10 Borg set, and a Crystalline shard chasing me the whole way!
For Tribble and post LOR/May 21st, I think the highest ranked warp/singularity cores that you can equip should be able to do this.
