Re: battles at warp speed

I don't think so. TOS had a pretty good mix of warp vs warp and warp vs sublight battles

"Balance of Terror" - Enterprise (warp and sublight) phasers at Romulan (impulse)
"Balance of Terror" - Romulan (impulse) plasma bolt at Enterprise (warp)

"The Ultimate Computer" - Enterprise (warp) phasers at Fed ships (warp)
"The Ultimate Computer" - Fed ships (warp) phasers at Enterprise (warp)
"The Ultimate Computer" - Enterprise (warp) torpedo at Woden (unknown)

"Elaan of Troyius" - Klingon Battlecruiser (warp and impulse) at Enterprise (impulse)
"Elaan of Troyius" - Enterprise (warp) torpedoes at Klingon Battlecruiser (warp)

"Journey To Babel" - Enterprise (unknown) phasers and torpedoes at Orion ship (high warp)
"Journey To Babel" - Enterprise (sublight) phasers at Orion ship (sublight)

"The Changeling" - Nomad (warp and sublight) torpedo at Enterprise (warp and sublight)
"The Changeling" - Enterprise (sublight) torpedo at Nomad (sublight)

"The Deadly Years" - Romulans (probably warp) torpedo at Enterprise (warp)

In TOS, virtually every battle where weapons were fired at warp speed occurred with the warp speed ship firing on a sublight target. The only exception may be the M5 incident but I don't recall exactly. When firing at a sublight target, the weapons do not have to be traveling at FTL....they just "drop out" so to speak like a plane dropping bombs.
