Traveling at Warp Factor Nine

Outer space is a big place. But you are bright people and knew that already. Science fiction aficionados have produced many stories that involve going faster than light, but Uncle Albert Einstein spoiled that idea. Some wrote stories and just ignored the problem (similar to the way some evolutionists ignore inconvenient fossils), moving at many times the speed of light. When the universe got bigger (well, better measurements and such), moving at such speeds would still take a mighty long time to reach other stars. So, they lassoed the concept of warp drive.

Warp drive has several names (including subspace), and did not originate with Star Trek, but Mr. Roddenberry's humanistic programs sure did make it popular. Naturally, fans will attempt to explain such things in their favorite shows and make them seem somewhat realistic, but they can only do so much with a concept that is extremely speculative.

What about serious research? Yes, it's happening, but not very promising. Why do people have such a fascination for traveling at warp speed? So we can see space aliens that must have evolved, and they can come here and see us. Have some nachos and soda, shake hands (or whatever) and part friendly. Evolutionists keep getting excited about finding habitable planets, but they come up empty, including the latest prospects to date. The concept of contacting extraterrestrials is actually based on evolution and several other atheistic presumptions, and implies that God is not the Creator, nor is Earth special.
A ‘trekky’ enthusiast once told me that the warp speeds described on the television shows and in the movies may be calculated as follows. Warp factor w, from the original Star Trek series, means that the spacecraft travels at w³ times the canonical speed of light (c ≅ 300,000 km/s or 186,000 miles/s). Therefore warp factor w = 7 means the spacecraft travels at 7 = 343 c. It would be unusual to hear that the starship the USS Enterprise had exceeded warp factor 9, which is about 729 times the speed of light.

To travel even around the local neighbourhood of our galaxy warp factor 9 (from the original TV series) just won’t do it. The nearest star to our solar system is about four light-years away. So travelling at warp 9, you would take two days to get there. Not too bad. But what about going to other star systems?
