In the year 2063 humanity broke the warp barrier when Zefram Cochrane launched the “Phoenix” and flew at the speed of light. Since that time Earth, and later the Federation, continued to develop faster warp engines. By the late 24th Century, a few starships were able to travel at speeds matching 9.999, allowing Starfleet to explore even further into the unknown.
This section gives a general guideline on warp speed conversion as offered in the Star Trek Starfleet Technical Manual.
