The calculator is operated by entering a warp factor number that is greater than 0 but lower than 10, followed by choosing the distance in light-years, and then pressing the Energize! button. All entries are cleared by pressing the Clear Log button. If the warp factor is too large, or you have used a comma (,) instead of a period (.), the results will display: NaN (Not a Number)
The calculator determines the speed according to the warp scale used in Star Trek: The Next Generation; Deep Space 9; and Star Trek: Voyager. Warp 10 is infinite speed that cannot be reached. Warp speeds in the original series were based on a different scale.
This is the official Warp Factor Calculator for Star Trek: Theurgy. It is based on the conclusions made by Stephen R. Schmitt, and all credit to for the research goes to him, in how he found the references needed to make a comprehensive and accurate formula. The calculator below has been improved in output format, showing years, days, months and seconds instead of just # years/days + decimals. It was also made for sake of easy access on our own site, but the credit still goes to Stephen R. Schmitt for the starting-point of this calculator.
