Yeah I do.  Unless there's another contradictory mention of the 0.74 as max speed I just have "high cruising speed".

Great.  Now I'm going to be tearing my hair out trying to find the source of that quote.  >:(

It mentions it can go faster, but says it's not sustainable and doesn't say by how much.

My car mechanic will never give me a straight answer either.

Much of the CMTM is reprinted from the original Dark Horse UK magazine articles, right? Was it from there?

Beats me.  Maybe it was from a wiki or someone else "cited" it in an old forum post somewhere else and I took it at face value, but I'm usually more careful than that.  Just look at all the Google results that say the same thing, essentially word for word:

Hey man, I'm just glad that there are enough nerds out here to passionately debate the hypothetical top speeds of a fictional ship from a movie sequel made over a third of a century ago. I say ooh-f**kin'-rah. Sorry for hijacking the thread, RipleyC8!
