Side note - why do we call it a "warp core"? What does it have to do with warping...anything? Its just a powerplant. A reactor.
I assume its because without that reactor warp speed isn't possible.
Sure, but neither would light bulbs or working control panels. It doesn't even have to be M/AM - the Romulans use black holes, and used to use fusion. Zephram Cochrane's Phoenix might've even used fission.
