Well, actually they might note that going from our solar system
to the entire galaxy in 1000 years is only about a 2.6% rate of
return. When the timeframes are millenia you can go from the world
today to the entire universe with a rather prosaic rate of return.
So perhaps they're calculating it accurately.
