I understand that and I don't dislike Spock having a girlfriend. I just would have preferred someone other than Uhura.

Enterprise had plain old fashioned warp drive. Excelsior had "trans-warp drive". It would make sense that by the time of TNG, all starships have "trans-warp drive", to save time people were dropping the "Trans".

So it's possible that Excelsior could warp out from planetary orbit with precision, while Enterprise could not.

Of course, this would violate the canon of TOS which has several episodes ending with
Kirk: Take us out of orbit. Ahead, warp factor one.

If the Star Trek Technical manual is authoritative, and warp speed is warp factor cubed times the speed of light, then warp one is the speed of light. At that speed, it takes 8 minutes to travel the distance from the sun to the earth. At warp 4 (64c), it takes a bit less than 8 seconds.

Even middling warp speeds inside a planetary system could be dangerous if you're manually controlling your ship's course, and/or if you don't know where everything is going to be when you get there.
