I'm pretty sure Warp 10 isn't 10X the speed of light though.

It's the equivalent of the Hitchiker's Impossibility Drive (if we use the TNG onwards scale)

Warp 9.99 (TNG) is 7,912 times the speed of light

Using the Next Generation warp scale, Warp 10 is infinite speed. No ship has ever reached that speed, and I won't have anyone tell me otherwise.

You mean the Infinite Improbability Drive? You realise the Improbability drive means you pass through every point in the universe simultaneously, right?

Is it that you're in every point at once or there is a probability you could be in every point at once?

I should probably remember as I only read the book for the first time 3 weeks ago but I remember thinking it must be paying homage to quantum superposition.

Whichever is most improbable I should imagine.

Second of all, there is always an energy crisis. Always. As civilisation continues to grow and advanced it is in perpetual need of ever increasing supplies of energy. This means that no matter where you are in history there is always an energy crisis looming just ahead of you which requires a new and greater source of energy. When the time comes that one cannot be found civilisation stops and if the one we current depend on collapses then civilisation collapses also.

The way I see it, making humans immortal is much more achievable than creating FTL, which is probably impossible. What have these things got to do with each other? Well, assuming medical technology reaches the point were we are immortal, the long times required for interstellar travel cease to be a problem. If you never grow old you won't care about taking a few centuries to reach another solar system, especially if you can go into some kind of deep sleep most of the way.

Is it more feasible to buy into the theory that aliens created us, or the god gooseberry fool?

Neither is feasible.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

I imagine an interstellar ship would be strawberry floating huge. If you are going to be living there for a few centuries you'll probably want your own living quarters and all sort of entertainment and such to keep you occupied. You could probably get a job on the ship. If you're not qualified, no big deal, you're immortal so you have time to become an expert in pretty much anything you have the remotest aptitude for. :lol:

Humans can't be trusted to not breed ourselves out of existence on a whole planet in a lifetime. I shudder to think of the state of the spaceship after more than 100 years.
