Explaining Blue Warp Nacelles to a newcomer is a bit like trying to explain quantum mechanics to a kid. You can try. Trust me, you can give it your best. But unless the kid is a gifted savant you'll have to give him lots of time to absorb the information before he gets even the most basic grasp of it all. And even then there's no guarantee he'll understand what the hell's going on.
It's easy: quantum mechanics are mechanics who work on quantums. Next!
