Not to mention that it would seem to me to be kind of difficult to stop even enemy ships moving at warp speed through such a large volume of space.
I mean, realistically... how in the heck would you stop a fleet of Klingon ships all moving independently at warp speed from reaching Sol? Even if you could see them coming, how would you stop something moving at relativistic speeds let alone hundreds of ships moving that fast?
We kind of ignore those sorts of details for the sake of dramatic effect and assume that there is some logical reason why it doesn't happen. We never look at the man behind the curtain unless the curtain's on fire.
