Talk:USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D)
I corrected several mistakes. The E-D and the Borg cube reached at least warp 9.6 in "Best of Both Worlds, Part 1":
WORF: The Borg ship is disengaging. Leaving at warp speed.
RIKER: Maintain pursuit.
WORF: Borg vessel has reached warp nine. Nine point four, nine point six.
RIKER: Stay with them. Riker to O'Brien. Can you get a fix on the Captain?
O'BRIEN [OC]: Negative, sir. There's some kind of interference. I can't lock in on his signal.
RIKER: Senior officers, report to the Bridge.
WORF: Sir, the coordinates they have set, they're on a direct course to sector zero zero one. The Terran system.
From the prologue at the begining of DS9's "Emmissary" establishing Picard being captive for 6 days:
On Stardate 43997, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Federation Starship Enterprise was kidnapped for six days by an invading force known as the Borg. Surgically altered, he was forced to lead an assault on Starfleet at Wolf 359.
The twice is the ship is brought out of this high-warp chase is after the deflector weapon is fired and that is only for 8-12 hours (repairs to the deflector dish and warp reactor are required), and to battle the Borg cube at Wolf 359 for several minutes to rescue Picard. --Mike 05:10, 9 May 2012 (EDT)
