Later investigation found that a fragment of the shattered wine-bottle had lodged itself in a space-time synchronicity sensor causing severe system failures. Once this was corrected Transwarp delivered the goods and became the fleetwide standard for FTL drive.

Years later something simmilar happened to the crew of Voyager, a misplaced champagne cork caused a prototype Quantum Slipstream Drive to nearly destroy the USS Voyager. After this incident christening of new systems and ships with glass bottles full of alcohol was forbidden by Starfleet General Order 271494-J.
