If maximum velocity in Star Wars was hyperspace and in Star Trek it was warp speed: does anyone know which one was the fastest?

pretty hard to tell unless you actually got your hands on some information from both of those universes and did some hard core math.

I have no idea.

In Star Wars, Han says they're going at light speed, but it would take them years to go anywhere like that so he may be wrong. In Star Trek, warp speeds are much much faster than light speed.

Star Wars looked slower. Star Trek skipped through the universe.

Star Wars never defined it like Roddenberry did for Star Trek.

warp 1 in startrek is light speed and warp 2 is 10 times light speed warp 3 is 100 times light speed and warp 4 is 1000 times and so on.

Thats what they used to say Zarap. Then in one episode when they went to the future the future ships could go warp 13. That confused me because warp 10 was supposed to be so fast that you would be in every point of the galaxy at one time. Or was that "hitch hikers guide to the"

Since starwars was a long time ago in a galaxy far far away, Light speed could be fast enough for them because all thier stars might be closer together than in out galaxy.

Speeds aren't defined as estimates of velocity in Star Wars, rather, they are defined as travel times. Assuming the two galaxies are of roughly equal size, I'd say that warp drives are faster than hyperdrives.

I prefer Bistomatics myself.

i read somewhere that that warp speed equals (warp number) * 10.5 miles per hour. And hyperdrive is equal can range between 90 and 150 miles per hour (depending on the condition of space). So it seems that hyperdrive would be faster than warp 10.

Ask Wil Wheaton.

I don't know--Warp Speed just sounds so much cooler...

I always heard the same mightyjim said when it came to Star Trek's warp speed.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 5/18/02 - 11:46:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I thought hyperspace was faster...

I'm not sure, but I do know that the Millenium Falcon made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. That's no easy feat let me tell you.

"ludicrous speed!"

I think they were both on Acid not Speed.

Good call on the Space Balls reference Misophist. Here's my question if there are "enertial dampeners" in Star Trek why does the ship shake when they get shot or when they're going through space "turbulance".

Depends on the Warp speed.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 10/4/02 - 12:05:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think that, since the ships in Star Wars went into hyperspace, that they actually utilized one of those dimensions in which the curvature of space would allow for them to travel faster than the average bear (for addition reference, read Dr. Michio Kaku's book aptly titled "Hyperspace"). That being said, I believe that Warp was still faster.

Warp Drives are much faster. And I remember Han Solo actually -did- somewhat define Hyperspace speed (1.5 past lightspeed, anyone?) whatever that '1.5' actually means. And it's spelled 'Inertial dampeners' as in 'inertia' - the resistance an object has to being accelerated (First Law of Newtonian Mechanics). And you bring up a good point.
