Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about!

A friend of mine sent me this clip about Stargate Atlantis:

Anyway my complaint is that the Stargate spinoff show Atlantis takes place in the city of Atlantis in the Pegasus galaxy, DDO216 to astronomers, a location the characters describe as 3.5 million light years from Earth. The Daedalus is described as requiring 20 days to reach Atlantis. This means the ship is traveling at 64 million times the speed of light!

To put that in Star Trek terms, years ago I remember reading that you calculate warp speed by doubling the previous warp factor.  So warp 1 is the speed of light, warp 2 is twice the speed of light, warp 3 if four times the speed of light, etc.  I don't know how accurate that is, (they do tend to change the rules from time to time) but at that rate, the Daedalus is traveling just under warp 37!

Oh well.  At least they got something right.  The ship captain is bald.
