How did it get so far out in space in such a short time? Voyager 1&2 are still not even close to arriving at the nearest star by that time.

Yeah, the Beta Quadrant is pretty far out there. 2287 would at least have put it near the end of the Alpha Quadrant. Although who knows. I mean, the odds of a ship making its way that deep into space wouldn't be possible. But, who knows, maybe a Federation ship repaired it and sent it on its way to the unknown, only to be ultimately...

DESTROYED BY THE KLINGONS!

Sol is actually directly between the Alpha and Beta quadrants. So Earth passes through both each year

We've seen plenty of phenomena that can propel objects faster than light, maybe Pioneer got caught in one, or perhaps in the gusts from an interstellar fart.

Though to be fair, considering how long it took the Enterprise to reach the galactic centre, I think we can let off Pioneer 10 for making it out a few dozen light years.

I can agree with you on that statement! Haha! I think the novel of Trek V explained how Enterprise was able to get to the center so fast, but I forgot the quote, in addition to how it was possible. They should have used it to explain how they got there so fast. Darn, why did Scotty have to bump his head! lol It's like a slap in the face on Shatner's part: "Okay, let's find a way to knock Scotty unconscious so we can just skip the possibility of having a logical reason as to how Enterprise get's to the great barrier so fast."

I've never noticed.

Cool

To me, the sound that accompanies the Narada reminds me of Godzilla...

Yeah, but it wasn't really an 'explanation' by any stretch of the imagination. Or, I guess one might say it was a standard Trek explanation!!!!

From the movies MA entry -
Another oddity in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is the Enterprise's trip to the center of the galaxy, which should have taken many years but seemed to occur in less than a day. In the novelization of Star Trek V, it is mentioned that Sybok's tinkering allows them to decrease their travel time. The Bird-of-Prey scans the Enterprise during their pursuit and is able to duplicate their rate of travel as well as Sybok's shield modifications allowing them to penetrate the Barrier.

A deflector shield modification that also conveniently managed to radically increase the ships speed to get to the centre of the Galaxy in hours instead of far, far longer. Sounds like a Trek tech plan to me!

Hey! I didn't know Shatner won a Golden Razzie triple for the flick!

This was the worst film of 1989.

Surely, there was something much worse than TFF. Of course, this is the one everybody has to bash...
