Re: Navigational Defletor?
FWIW, the "warp streaks" would be nicely explained as being interactions of the warp field and the interstellar dust impacting on it...
That is the most common explanation I have heard- interstellar dust and debris impacting with the warp-field and being dashed into FTL bits. I have also heard it postulated that it is Cherenkov (sp?) radiation owing to photons impacting on the warp field.
Amy: Please tell me you have a plan.
The Doctor: No, I have a thing. It's like a plan, but with more greatness.
