Changing the warp scale from TOS to TNG was one of the worst decisions they made.
I get that you need to be "going faster" in 2364 because episodes are shorter so plot needs to happen quicker. But TOS-Ent passed warp 8 on like three total occasions including the movies, whereas Ent-D hits warp 9 on the regular. Faster even without recalibrating! And "warp 12" scans so much better than "warp nine point nine nine five" so in summary stfu warp is open-ended.
