That my firend is where you are wrong... it is a change of instance, and because of that the system in STO to change instances for a ground member is to beam and for ship is to warp. Even though that mechanic is actually not happening I believe this is a default action coded into the engine, similar to the smoke puff if your character falls from an overly tall height, this is also what causes the starships to fall sometimes in the space map and bit with a billow of dust particles. It was taken (originally) from a game designed to be on earth with superheroes, who each time they landed from flying would thump the earth and smoke.
