You would see "zoom lines", trailing the object that is moving at light speed, parallel to the motion of travel.

Here you go https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warp_drive
But in essence, Warp 9 = ~1516 times the speed of light - so pretty fast!

Warp 9.9 is considered the best a standard Warp drive can deliver, to go faster, you need to upgrade to a TransWarp drive or better.

Now back to jokes

Hey, that's easy, it's the speed of attitude change when you tell an airline captain that he can't have the meal he wants!

Re: The New Joke Thread

This is a sailing forum, therefore:

Quote:
Warp:

Nautical. to move (a vessel) into a desired place or position by hauling on a rope that has been fastened to something fixed, as a buoy or anchor.
I guess Mr. Scott has a big windlass and a long rope and just drags the Enterprise across the universe

Re: The New Joke Thread

Warp?? It's the bits of thread that run orthogonaly to the weft in your sails (unless they are some non-woven material).
