# How fast is maximum impulse?

## How fast is maximum impulse?

Accelerating to Quarter Impulse Power The Enterprise D has a mass of 4.

## How fast is 1/4 impulse speed?

One quarter impulse for the shuttle could be estimated at 1,852 kilometers per second. The Star Trek Voyager Technical Manual, page 13, has full impulse listed as ¼ of the speed of light, which is mph or 74,770 km/s. One quarter impulse for Voyager would be 18,665 km/s.

## How fast is warp?

Accordingly, "warp 1" is equivalent to the speed of light, "warp 2" is eight times the speed of light, "warp 3" is 27 times the speed of light, etc.

## Is Impulse drive possible?

It all sounds very complex, and it is. It's actually do-able, b ut not with current technology. Effectively, impulse engines represent a step forward from current chemical-powered rockets. They don't go faster than the speed of light, but they're faster than anything we have today.

## How fast is sublight speed?

meters per second

## How fast are sublight engines?

Sublight or space-normal speed is a term that refers to anything below the speed of light, approximately 3 × 108 meters/second. Sublight is usually used to describe non-warp speeds, typically when either an impulse drive or maneuvering thrusters would be used as propulsion for a vessel.

## How fast are the ships in Stellaris?

That works out to 3536 mi/s or 5691 km/s, which means 12.
