On the old scale, speed is equal to the warp factor value cubed, times the speed of light.

  • Warp 1= 1c
  • Warp 2= 8c
  • Warp 3= 27c
  • Warp 4= 64c
  • Warp 5= 125c
  • Warp 6= 216c
  • Warp 7= 343c
  • Warp 8= 512c
  • Warp 9= 729c and so on into infinity.

On the new scale, speed is equal to the warp factor value to the power of about 3.3, times the speed of light.

  • Warp 1= 1c,
  • Warp 2= 10c
  • Warp 3= 38c
  • Warp 4= 101c
  • Warp 5= 212c
  • Warp 6= 390c
  • Warp 7= 651c
  • Warp 8= 1,016c
  • Warp 9= 1505c

but after warp 9, speeds quickly rise towards infinity between warp 9 and warp 10, with warp 10 being infinity.The preceding unsigned comment was added by 74.78.35.216 (talk).
