3.0 (AU per second) = 278 867 663 miles per second; and,therefore 3.0 AU per second = 1497 C.
the speed of light = 186 282.397 miles per second,
So, when you're warping around a single solar system at 3.0 AU/sec in a cruiser, battle cruiser, or battleship, you're moving at 1497 times the speed of light. Einstein would be annoyed. That's also roughly equivalent to Warp 9 on Star Trek (1516 C).
I wonder if that was intentional. Also, I'm surprised I only got around to checking this tonight.
A few others, for fun:
Your shuttle zips along at warp 9.9.Anyway, just a little number crunching that occurred to me in a quiet moment tonight. I'll stick to jump and gate travel. Even at warp 9.99, five light-years takes 5.5 hours to cross. Though on the other hand, if you factor in lag... ;-)
Your 15 AU/second interceptor pushes the EVE limit at warp 9.99.
Even your relatively pokey freighter does just under warp 6.
