we're still in theory here, were at the point where no-one knows what would happen if the light barrier was broken. probably nothing i'd imagine, but just how to or if it's even safe i'm not sure. probably go off on some crazy event horizon nightmare with Morpheus chasing you around the ship stabbing himself in the eyes. as a kid I always imagined the engines expending dilithium fuel to move the ship. however I've come to find the dilithium only powers the warp core that creates the warp 'bubble' making FTL a viable solution. the idea that the ship isn't actually using it's 'fuel' to move is a fascinating one. too bad wedging magnets won't pull a ship forward quickly through a vacuum. build some big driver coil sized magnets! = (
