Which didn't negate the stations mass, only changed a localized pocket of space around the station to allow it to move with minimal input (and incidentally to keep it from tearing itself apart from inertial forces while making the trip). It may sound like splitting hairs, but it's two different effects to achieve nearly identical results (breaking the newtonian laws of motion to allow for interstellar travel at crazy fast speeds).
