Warp Drive

Warp drive is the standard faster-than-light propulsion employed by interstellar civilization.


Methods used to travel at warp involve using ignited plasma to generate a subspace field around a ship, which propels it at faster-than-light speeds.


In the year 2063, Zefram Cochrane, aided by Lily Sloane, successfully developed and tested the warp drive. This test drew a Vulcan scout ship to Earth, resulting in mankind's first contact with an extraterrestrial species.
