a device by which a spaceship is enabled to travel through space by means of a space warp; a faster-than-light drive
With these modern time-warp drives a small magnetic disturbance is cumulative, and the center is like the center of a cyclonic windstorm.]
The atomic engines of ordinary space vessels attained only a small fraction of the inconceivable velocity which Alward claimed for the warp-drive of the Starling.
An American scientist at Harvard had discovered the spacewarp drive. ]
This ship works by warp-drive. It warps space, so that it can travel even faster than light!
Let’s see yarns about vampires, ghouls, werewolves, and other assorted spooks, as well as ray guns, six-headed Martians, galactic wars, and warp drives.
Space is warped, just as your own scientists have theorized, and with the new warp drive our Altairian VI scientists have developed it’s no trick at all, even for an amateur to travel to any place he wants to in the galaxy in a matter of just a few days.
One fact—normally of interest only to warpdrive technicians—concerns the curious propagation of radiation in warpspace.
Though we are not far by warp drive from the Klingon Empire.
Perhaps they never discovered the warp drive.
By the turn of the century the intricacies of the Toynbee warp drive had been sufficiently mastered to permit the building of large, well-equipped exploration vessels which were safe and reliable in operation.
He moved through the exotic crowd—everything from aliens and diplomats to stocky merchantmen and deep-space sailors. Even the talk was strange: star systems and warp drive, antimatter engines and Imperial intrigue.
McCoy came through the door as if he had already been under full warp drive.
It’s like trying to work with a warp drive that has no magnetic field to shield you.
Sekar entered the craft and found…that it possessed warp drive and a small transporter.
Suppose we do have remnants of some super-duper, alien warp-drive scout ship from Algerdeberon Eleventeen.
We are short of most parts, the replicators are functioning only on an emergency basis, and the warp drive is down over fifty percent. Is that a fairly accurate assessment?
They had only made a stop at Delta Vega to obtain the hardware they required to repair their warp drive.
He’d have been absolutely fucking delighted with one that could be traversed with some kind of warp-drive or jumpgates or wormholes or similar fanciful mechanism.
