Gaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then again, that timeline never really happened

The other point I made is that the "modifications" in those TOS episodes seemed to apply only to the engines, but it was implied in other episodes that greater speeds were "unsafe" due to loss of hull integrity, i.e to enable the ship to continuously travel at >warp 10 would have required structural redesign as well as engine modifications.
