Warp drive is a hypothetical faster-than-light (ftl) propulsion system in many works, most notably star trek. a spacecraft equipped with a warp drive may travel at apparent speeds greater than that of light by many orders of magnitude. in contrast to many other ftl technologies, such as a jump drive or hyper drive, the warp drive does not permit instantaneous (or near instantaneous) travel between two points but involves a measurable passage of time. spacecraft at warp velocity can continue to interact with objects in "normal space". some of the other fiction in which warp drive technology is featured include: stars!, eve online, earth and beyond, starcraft, darkspace, starship troopers, doctor who, and star ocean.
