Needs more info on utilisation by Voyager and the DF, as well as the Fort Knox heist and methodology of retrieval. -- Michael Warren | Talk 00:59, Jan 30, 2005 (CET)

The part of the article saying that larger vessels need more coils to propel themselves and smaller ships only require a few coils is not documented. The episode "Dark Frontier" does not make any reference to that. What canon source are you quoting from? --Preator

Actually, it was added by an anonymous user [1]. I figured whoever put it there knew what they were talking about (been a while since I've seen the episode). But you may be right; I don't recall that either. So, I'll move it here for others to review. --Sasoriza 03:43, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Removed from articleEdit

(Source unknown)

The larger the vessel, the more transwarp coils are needed to propel the ship into transwarp; for example, a class IV Borg tactical cube requires at least five transwarp coils to travel at transwarp velocities, while a sphere requires only a few. (Added by, 16:29, 25 March 2005 [2])

Burning out Edit

Yes, the transwarp coil burned out on Voyager, but does that mean that all transwarp coils burn out? There's nothing to indicate that they all burn out; the fact that this one did may simply be a result of using it with Federation technology. The entire section seems to be speculation. If no one objects, I'll remove it...--Tiberius 11:21, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
