warp speed now even warpier?

Well, I ventured out and watched the new Star Trek movie. On the whole it was quite enjoyable. But I suspect it has rendered the warp speed calculator obsolete. Was I mistaken, or was there dialogue like this:

Kirk: “How long ’til we reach Vulcan?”

Chekov: “3 seconds…”

Three seconds? It used to take hours or days, not seconds. It seems that in this Star Trek reboot warp speed has been enhanced so that you get places as quickly as if you were using Infinite Improbability Drive without the interesting side-effects!
