What if we had a warp drive? – Piekniewski's blog
Milky Way is probably 100-180 thousand light years across. Which means that with our "warp-capable" ship at maximal velocity of stunning 1ly/h (almost nine thousand times faster than light!!!) it would take 11-20 years to fly across the Milky Way one way! At that velocity the Andromeda galaxy would still be prohibitive 228 years of travel away. It would however only take 2.5 months to travel the galactic disk across the thinner axis.

Knowing that imagining a brighter tomorrow has always been an act of resistance, editors Victor LaValle and John Joseph Adams invited an extraordinarily talented group of writers to share stories that explore new forms of freedom, love, and justice.

A Noir Superhero Thriller: Zero Sum Game by S.L. Huang | Tor.com
"Cas Russell doesn’t have superpowers. What she has is an incredible facility with mathematics, very good proprioception, and sufficient athleticism that what she can do looks like superpowers. (For all intents and purposes, she definitely has superpowers; she just believes that they’re natural talent.) Russell specialises in retrieval work: she can find anything and steal it (back) for you. She’s casually violent, poorly socialised, and has no respect for other people’s property. And she doesn’t do well with boredom."
