La Galaxie Triangulum (ou M33 ou NGC 598 ou Galaxie du Triangle) est une galaxie à spirale se trouvant à 2'700'000 années-lumières de la Galaxie de la Voie Lactée et au-delà de la Galaxie d'Andromède.
Les calculs de retour indiquèrent qu'en vitesse de distorsion maximale, l' Enterprise-D mettrait 300 ans. Un message subspatial envoyé à Starfleet Command mettrait 51 ans et arriverait donc en 2415. (TNG: "Where No One Has Gone Before")

With a return trip time of 300 years using maximum warp speed, Federation technology has now matched that seen of the Kelvan Empire in TOS: "By Any Other Name". The Kelvans made a voyage from the Andromeda Galaxy to the Milky Way in three centuries, remarked at in amazement by James T. Kirk who stated that, in the 23rd century, it would have taken a starship "thousands of years" to travel between galaxies.|Saying the return journey would take over 300 years at maximum warp may not have taken into account that the Enterprise-D could not hold its maximum warp of 9 for that length of time and may have just been an estimation. As was Kirk's estimation that it would take thousands of years to travel between galaxies; taking into account that he knew his Enterprise usually held a cruising speed of warp 5 or 6.
