  • Having a “debate” about changing the filibuster rule is about as realistic as having a debate about whether we should be building warp-drive spaceships.

    Matthew Yglesias » Governments Should Govern

  • This stuff ain't dilithium-crystal warp-drive science or anything.

    Chris Weigant: Friday Talking Points -- Give 'Em Hell, Barry!

  • But actually I don't find that far-out prospect very interesting -- it bears the same relationship to serious aging science that warp-drive spaceships do to aeronautical engineering.

    David Stipp: Why Anti-Aging Science Really Matters

  • Demonstrating warp-drive capacity—which really amounts to little more than sustaining and harnessing the mutually annihilative reaction of matter and antimatter, as the Hranrarii have done—is what determines whether a culture has attained warp capability.

  • The Hranrarii, after all, had yet even to put one of their own into low Hranrar orbit; the discovery of warp-drive technology, the traditional benchmark of Federation first-contact scenarios, was doubtless several generations away.

    Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Seize the Fire

  • More likely that we would have developed warp-drive and got a manned mission there before the bloody probe arrived.

  • It certainly seems more plausible than aliens crossing vast distances to skulk around cattle farms and wheat fields in England and the U.S. Exactly what possible reason would they have to fly all the way here in their warp-drive spaceships, only to make pretty pictures in the fields in the middle of the night?

    Anal Probes Explained… Maybe « UDreamOfJanie

  • That it might take months if not years for these people to even begin grasping the concepts behind modern warp-drive technology did not seem to dampen their enthusiasm.

    A Time to Sow

  • Of the thirty-eight members of the skeleton crew, fully twenty of them were warp-drive engineers.
