Persons 1, 2 and 3 are going to race from point A to point B



This is the Milkyway Galaxy.



It's estimated to be 100,000 Light Years in diameter.

All the contendants are starting out where it says "Sun"
The finish line will be the Nucleus of the Central Bulge.


Who wins?

IT wins because it's instant. Thats why he calls it Instant Transmission.

right, lets discount Light Speed instantly because it's way too slow to keep up with Warp Speed or Instant Transmission...

between Instant Transmission and Warp Speed it all depends on how much power is behind the Warp Core, for example, if you are pumping enough power into the warp core to allow for Warp 10 (2nd ed warp system), then you are everywhere and nowhere in the galaxy at once, so you can literally be there at the same time you are leaving the start point.

as for Instant Transmission, from what i've seen it always takes a few seconds for the 'effect' to happen, so thats secondary to warp speed...

also while Instant Transmission may be quicker in the long run at lesser warp powers, warp also allows for the 'bending' of space / time, making the win available via the use of time travel as well, which Instant Transmission can't do...

1. Warp Speed
2. Instant Transmission

but it isn't instant, it takes a few seconds for the effect to pass over the body on one side and a few seconds to rematerialise on the other...

it's basically like ST Transporter systems, faster in the long run but actually limited when faced with other options

Wow, someone's been doing their homework. You're right. Instant Transmission is as fast as the speed of thought. If you wish to be in one location; the person can instantly be there with a thought. But even though Instant Transmission allows person A to reach his destination alot quicker, that person needs to sense where he's going first.

And yes, the 2nd edition (if you meant Star Trek) of warp speeds (transwarp) is far faster than any of the Captain Kirk movies version of warp drive. In the movie Star Trek 4; warp 10 allowed Kirk and his crew to time travel. As the veiwer witnesses the screen, the klingon ship is gradually getting closer to the sun, but in actuallity.. the Klingon Ship flew around the Solar System 1000 times or more (can't convert star dates to modern years-sorry)

Actually thats not true at all. In fact, the only reason he puts his fingers on his forehead is to concentrate on trying to sense where the person is so he could transport to him/her. Otherwise he could do IT without it, like the kamahamaha he used against Cell, and he never put his fingers on his forehead. And....you know whats interesting, it's that Goku could go anywhere in the universe and he could sense that person within that universe. Thats like....omnipotence right there lol but without the reality warping.

right

right, here we have a basic second second gen warp table...

you can check the maths here and here if you want, but all Star Trek use exactly the same rules for Warp Speed...

now, if you check Warp 9.99, which is completely viable for Enterprise E Class (Soverign) and Voyager (Intrepid) class star ships...

Warp Factor 9.99 is equivalent to 7912 times C (the speed of light), or about 2,371,957,928 kilometers per second.

yes, you read that right... 2,371,957,928 KPS

while that isn't really fast enough for mass speed, that will give you an idea of how fast Warp really is...

taking into account Warp 10 and Time Travel which Warp system allows access to, i don't really see any other contender...

Yea, just like how Juggs is the unstoppable when he is clearly not. And it pretty much is instant because once he disepears at Point A he is already next on Point B. It's already proven by Cell.

That is a point, but he needs to "see" where his going to pull it off without his fingers. Remember the fight between Goku and Geti Star Cooler? They were fighting at Instant Transmission speeds. But they where all fighting eachother at a local battle point.

With that in mind: when it comes to traveling to vast distances: Goku must "sense" and lock on to where he's going.

um... no...

in everything i have seen it always takes about 7 to 8 seconds as anyone using IT has to use the 'remote viewing' to actually see where they are going so they don't end up in a star, a black hole or just inside a planet....

one light year is 63,241 AU...

which is about 5,878,625,373,183.61 miles if i got my math right...

so avarage walking speed os, what 7 miles per hour?

so basic maths here, time = distance / speed

Time = 5,878,625,373,183.61 / 3.12928 (i converted to Meters per second for ease)

Time = 839,818,247,909 hours approx...

which is about 95,814,974 years at avarage walking speed...

Oops, I didn't mean by the whole year, but by the second light travels. 186,000mps. How long will it take to without stopping to reach 186,000 miles by walking. I was just wondering becuase it takes around 30 weeks without stopping to walk around the world (that's 5mph-unless you're power walking). I wanted to compare how long it takes to walk around the world and map it to 186,000 miles distance so I can see how many Flat Earth can stretch and cover 186,000miles.

It's wierd question, I know.

which is about 5,878,625,373,183.61 miles if i got my math right...

so avarage walking speed os, what 7 miles per hour?

so basic maths here, time = distance / speed

Time = 5,878,625,373,183.61 / 3.12928 (i converted to Meters per second for ease)

Time = 839,818,247,909 hours approx...

which is about 95,814,974 years at avarage walking speed...

why?

Oops, I didn't mean by the whole year, but by the second light travels. 186,000mps. How long will it take to without stopping to reach 186,000 miles by walking. I was just wondering becuase it takes around 30 weeks without stopping to walk around the world (that's 5mph-unless you're power walking). I wanted to compare how long it takes to walk around the world and map it to 186,000 miles distance so I can see how many Flat Earth can stretch and cover 186,000miles.

It's wierd question, I know."
There is this thing called a calculator that is perfect for problems such as this.

"right, lets discount Light Speed instantly because it's way too slow to keep up with Warp Speed or Instant Transmission...

between Instant Transmission and Warp Speed it all depends on how much power is behind the Warp Core, for example, if you are pumping enough power into the warp core to allow for Warp 10 (2nd ed warp system), then you are everywhere and nowhere in the galaxy at once, so you can literally be there at the same time you are leaving the start point.

as for Instant Transmission, from what i've seen it always takes a few seconds for the 'effect' to happen, so thats secondary to warp speed...

also while Instant Transmission may be quicker in the long run at lesser warp powers, warp also allows for the 'bending' of space / time, making the win available via the use of time travel as well, which Instant Transmission can't do...

1. Warp Speed
2. Instant Transmission
3. Light Speed

Wow, someone's been doing their homework. You're right. Instant Transmission is as fast as the speed of thought. If you wish to be in one location; the person can instantly be there with a thought. But even though Instant Transmission allows person A to reach his destination alot quicker, that person needs to sense where he's going first.

And yes, the 2nd edition (if you meant Star Trek) of warp speeds (transwarp) is far faster than any of the Captain Kirk movies version of warp drive. In the movie Star Trek 4; warp 10 allowed Kirk and his crew to time travel. As the veiwer witnesses the screen, the klingon ship is gradually getting closer to the sun, but in actuallity.. the Klingon Ship flew around the Solar System 1000 times or more (can't convert star dates to modern years-sorry)

1. Warp
2. Instant Transmission
3. Light Speed"
Actually thats not true at all. In fact, the only reason he puts his fingers on his forehead is to concentrate on trying to sense where the person is so he could transport to him/her. Otherwise he could do IT without it, like the kamahamaha he used against Cell, and he never put his fingers on his forehead. And....you know whats interesting, it's that Goku could go anywhere in the universe and he could sense that person within that universe. Thats like....omnipotence right there lol but without the reality warping.


"

it's not omnipotence....all he's doing is sensing their energy"
lol dude, i said thats "like" omnipotence.

  Actually it would be closer to omniscience (knowing everything)- but it is not even that because it is still limited.

warp speed

light speed

and than instant transmission

people need to take into account that instant transmission isn't as fast as people think

a group of scientists actually calculated how fast instant transmission is. and concluded it would only be 10,000 times the speed of light. light is insanely fast but still takes Eons to travel across the universe. for example the observable universe is 46.5 billion light years so using instant transmission and the formula of 10,000 times the speed of light it would take 4,650,000 years to cross the observable universe
