I love the Okuda warp scale. It simultaneously explains why Warp 10 isn’t really possible (power usage increases infinitely - this is TNG and later), but also why warp numbers are generally whole numbers with the Transitional Thresholds.
Mike Okuda is one of my favorite people behind the scenes in Trek. He put the ‘science’ in Trek’s ‘science fiction’ by making plausible answers for writer’s gaffes and intended storylines.
on stressful days I like to close my eyes and pretend I’m on my favorite Disney World rides.
I do the same thing, but I imagine I’m walking down Main Street in Disneyland. Typically after sunset on a warm summer evenings. The sounds, the smells, the lights. Yeah.
