Re: Ramming planets at warp velocity!

Consider though that warp drive is Pseudo motion, an object moving at sublight speed just under the speed of light might actually have more kinetic energy than a ship moving at warp. I think the ship should have no more energy than the amount of antimatter it consumed to reach that particular warp velocity. So if the ship just sits in orbit and breaches its antimatter containment, it would release just as much energy as if it collided with the planet at warp.
