WarpDrive

A diagram of a Warp Drive in action, featuring an extremely primitive old Terran vessel.

Warp Drive is a method of faster-than-light travel that functions via the compression, or 'warping', of space in a localized area. Rather than accelerating a vessel or object normally and thus increasing the mass infinitely as it approaches the speed of light, warp drive instead accelerates a bubble of normal spacetime holding the vessel, using the continual expansion and compression of space to force the bubble forward at superluminal speeds. Due to the extreme power requirements, this method of travel has seen limited use across Mjolnir, but its relative safety compared to methods such as Hyperdrive have made it an attractive technology for vessels operating in a small area, such as local cruise liners and short-range cargo ships.
