Re: battles at warp speed

TOS Star Trek has had warp battles where there were no restrictions on the use of phasers and torpedoes. By TNG Star Trek, the production crew made changes to the way things work in Trek and limited phasers to sublight-only. By DS9 and Voyager, some of those "limits" were ignored.

If you want to throw some "tech" at it, the beam weapons like phasers and disruptors were warp energy saturated or jacketed for FTL use while the torpedoes carried their own warp units
