IMHO, one of the best "canon" quotes in some time!

No, in The Motion Picture they wait to clear the solar system because the ship's been refurbished. There've been heavy modifications to the warp drive, and they want to be safely away from our planet in case something goes catastrophically wrong when they fire up the most powerful, space-distorting, antimatter-guzzling power source known to exist

I'm pretty sure Kirk said in his log:

"In order to intercept the intruder at the earliest possible time, we must now risk engaging warp drive while still within the solar system."

Aside from the potential havoc caused by strong magnetic and gravitational fields, the biggest danger about going to warp within a star system is just the higher possibility of collision with other objects. Aside from planets, moons, and asteroids, there's also various space stations and other ships to contend with. Even at warp one, a ship only has less than a half second to avoid hitting something that accidentally wanders into its flight path from 100,000 kilometers away. You need as much open space as possible in order to maneuver away from something that close at warp speed, IMO...

I think for safety reasons, ships don't usually go to warp within a system, but that doesn't mean that they can't in an absolute emergency. It's just very risky or a generally unsafe practice.

But then again, Kirk used took the Enterprise-A out of Spacedock One at one-quarter impulse power, which is a pretty dangerous velocity when you consider it was within an enclosed structure with other parked starships inside...

Either way you slice it...it is 1.) A minor "canon" defect (for those who believe in "canon".) 2.) An example on how "canon" is contradicted numberous times. It is documented on film and series. 3.) There is no proven theory that any one fan or for that fact producer can agree on so go with the last example given.

And this thread is not silly. It shows another inconsistency.
