The Enterprise is ordered to undergo a series of tests that will propel the ship at unfathomable speed, but Riker has misgivings surrounding the equations and theories presented by the arrogant designer, and someone, most unexpected, is the only one who puts his finger on the assistant as the one behind the whole scheme of things.

During the second jump (to the unknown part of the Universe), the Enterprise's view-screen shows several objects through which the ship appears to be passing. The last of those objects is the famous Ring Nebula - a planetary nebula about 2300 light years from Earth. See more
During the first jump, Data states that their velocity is "off the scale". Kosinski then says that for the next attempt he would just do what he did before. However, during each of the following two jumps, their speed never exceeds warp 1.5, according to Data's instruments. As we learn later, Kosinski wasn't really doing anything - it was the Traveler moving the ship, and he was obviously doing things very differently those other two times, because they left space as we know it. The fact that the warp at those other jumps stayed at 1.5 was mentioned specifically to let us know that Traveller's abilities go far beyond such mundane things as "warp factors". See more
