How does warp speed in Star Trek relate to the speed of light? It seems it must be logarithmic to allow for travel across the galaxy.
OK, believe it or not, there were different Warp speeds for different Star Trek shows. Let me show you two of the most obvious.
For the original Classic Star Trek series, the warp equation is generally accepted to be:
V = C * W^3
C -- the speed of light ~3 x 10^8 meters per second. W -- the warp factor V -- velocity through space
