Guidelines for writing Poems, Stories and Tales

Is anything like the propulsion systems (warp/impulse drives) copyrighted from being use in other sci-fi novels?



Warp drives first appeared in science-fiction back in the early nineteen-thirties. As a result warp drives are neither copyright nor trademarked as belonging to Star Trek. Impulse drives is a term coined in the Star Trek franchise. So it may be trademarked by them.

Who came up with the idea of warp drive?

Inspired by Star Trek, distinguished physicist Miguel Alcubierre developed the general relativity-based model for warp drive 20 years ago. Hear why he doubts it will ever be a reality, and learn about his current research on gravitational waves.

Did Star Trek invent the warp drive?

As any avid Star Trek fan can tell you, the eccentric physicist Zefram Cochrane invented the warp-drive engine in the year 2063. It wasn’t easy.

When was the term warp speed first used?





The first known use of warp speed was in 1977.

How would warp drive work?

Alcubierre’s warp drive would work by creating a bubble of flat spacetime around the spaceship and curving spacetime around that bubble to reduce distances. The warp drive would require either negative mass – a theorized type of matter – or a ring of negative energy density to work.

Is NASA making a warp drive?

According to Popular Mechanics, the NASA warp drive will expend a massive amount of energy that will “warp” (contract and twist) space time behind the spacecraft, which will create a space time “bubble.” This bubble, which will be created around the ship and curved behind it, will theoretically reduce the distance that

How fast is a real warp drive?

Only in a single episode of Star Trek Voyager there was a specific numerical speed value given for a warp factor. In the episode “The 37’s”, Tom Paris tells Amelia Earhart that Warp 9.9 is about 4 billion miles per second (using customary units for the character’s benefit).



Why is warp 10 Impossible?



Our solution was to redraw the warp curve so that the exponent of the warp factor increases gradually, then sharply as you approach Warp 10. At Warp 10, the exponent (and the speed) would be infinite, so you could never reach this value.

What’s the fastest warp speed?

Warp Speed In The Next Generation Era



According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, in simple terms, the new warp speed factor 1 is the exact speed of light, 299,792,458 m/s.

How fast is warp speed compared to light speed?

Warp one, a veritable snail’s pace in the world of Trek, is equal to the speed of light. Warp speeds exceeding warp one equal a multiple of C (the speed of light), but the exact speeds are variable, depending on the source material.

Do you age at the speed of light?

The simple answer is, anything moving through space at c, equal to the speed of light in a vacuum, experiences zero time flow. If you were to travel at the speed of light, you would experience no time.

Is Impulse drive possible?

Unfortunately, there is no way around this. That’s why impulse engines are often limited in science fiction to about 25% of the speed of light where relativistic effects would be minimal. The other challenge for such engines is where they operate.

How do I make a real warp drive?


Quote from video: And this type of a device sometimes referred to as the alcubierre. Drive the hypothetical way for us to travel faster than speed of light by essentially warping the space time around the craft.

Why is warp 10 Impossible?

Our solution was to redraw the warp curve so that the exponent of the warp factor increases gradually, then sharply as you approach Warp 10. At Warp 10, the exponent (and the speed) would be infinite, so you could never reach this value.



What is the difference between warp drive and hyperdrive?

Hyperdrives allow you to travel around the galaxy in a matter of days whereas warp drives take decades, requiring numerous refueling operations along the way.

When did Vulcans discovered warp drive?

23rd century



According to the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology (p.

How fast is warp speed compared to light speed?

Warp one, a veritable snail’s pace in the world of Trek, is equal to the speed of light. Warp speeds exceeding warp one equal a multiple of C (the speed of light), but the exact speeds are variable, depending on the source material.

How long would it take to travel 70000 light years at warp 9?

Voyager was about 70,000 light-years away from home, and crew would often use “75 years” as the time it would take to get back home at top speed. This means the Voyager series used the old method of Warp calculation. 70,000/9.9753 is roughly 71 years.

How long would it take to get to Alpha Centauri at warp speed?

Moving at Voyager’s speed, it would take 700 *centuries* for a mission to reach Alpha Centauri. With speeds like that, we stand to become the first generation to know life is out there, and to not be able to know much more than that. The prospect is maddening. Don’t miss what matters.
