So it's obvious that the higher the tier ship you have, the higher the maximum warp is. The Tier 1 starters have 7.21 I believe and the Tier 2's have 7.77. Can anybody that made it to the higher tiers in open beta please tell me what the speeds are for Tier's 3,4, and 5.

T3 is 8.4.
In open beta T5 was 9.4 I think.

Sweet. Do the speeds scale like warp speeds do in actual cannon, with it getting exponentially faster, or do they scale like the impulse speeds? From what I've seen from the difference between Tier 1 and 2, it scales like it's supposed to. If it's true, Tier 5's should move about 2.3 times faster than Tier 1's by my calculations.

my tier 2 is goin wrap 8.13 right now. So i think some things like engine and such effect it, Since early it was on 7.8

This is just conjecture, but i belive it wouldn't scale as impulse engines, but also definatly not exponentially.

That's odd. I'm in a Science and it's still going about 7.8. One would think that Science would have the highest warp speeds. Especially since the Discovery is a Science ship and has the highest maximum warp speed in the game (of the ships we've seen so far).

Well I guess technically it isn't exponential until you get past warp 9.9 or so. But I'm going by this table from the TNG technical manual http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi.../Warptable.gif

I'm hoping the speeds in game follow the table pretty closely.

The speeds aren't directly related to what teir of ship you have, they actually increase a little with each level you obtain.

In fact, it is exponentially, in TV/Movie, despite some re-ajustments in the various spin-offs.

Cubic of the Warp factor (in Light years) is the speed time (in multiple of Light speed)
eg : Warp 8 is 8x8x8= 512 times the speed of Light.

In "theory", the maximum is 10, except on some rare occasions.

If I'm not mistaken the cubic was from the Original Series. The new warp system from TNG uses this formula:

s(w)=w10/3 c

s(w)=velocity
w+warp factor
c=speed of light
