I thought his warp drive was powered by a fusion plant. He must have some form of IDF to get up to near lightspeed much less warp 1. I do not recall any gravity control in the cabin.
You don't need an IDF for warp travel - no inertia is imparted. His ship was in warp from the moment Cochrane flipped the engage switch while in orbit. You don't have to get up to near light speed with conventional engines and THEN flip on the warp drive, you know.
Never fear! JuanBolio wuz here!
