Approximately 186,000 miles per second, the speed of light, (or appx 11,000,000 per minute)

Warp factor 1 in Star Trek is travelling at 1.079e+9 km/h. That just happens to be the speed of light. Warp factor 2 is 8 times the speed of light, warp factor 3 is 27 times the speed of light, and it continues to climb like that.

• It climbs like that until you get past warp 9. Then it increases asymptopically to infinity as you approach warp 10. Why do I know this? Why am I willing to argue about this?!

From "Memory Alpha" - the Warp Chart:

Warp factor

Calculated speed (*c)

Distance traveled in 24 hours (*light years)

Travel time from Earth to Alpha Centauri

0.5 0.099 0.0003 43.64 years

1 1 0.003 4.33 years

2 10.079 0.028 156.91 days

3 38.941 0.107 40.61 days

4 101.594 0.278 15.57 days

5 213.747 0.585 7.4 days

6 392.498 1.075 4.03 days

7 656.135 1.796 2.41 days

8 1024 2.804 37.07 hours

9 1516.381 4.152 25.03 hours

As you can see, Warp 1 is the speed of light - about 299,760k/sec, or about 1,079,136,000kph

warp 1 is the speed of light

The speed of light is 299792458 m/s

299792458 * 3600 m / hr =>

299792458 * 3.6 km/hr =>

1079252848.8 km/hr
