A warp drive uses power from a [[Matter-antimatter annihilation|matter-antimatter reactor]] system (often called the "[[warp core]]") to generate a [[subspace]] field around the vessel, allowing it to exceed the normal speed restrictions of [[general relativity]].  Any phenomenon which prevents the formation of this field will prevent a ship from using warp propulsion.

The subspace disturbances created by warp drives seem to be highly visible to subspace [[sensor]]s, making ships travelling at warp speeds much easier to detect than ships cruising at sublight speeds.
