Re: TFF Shuttle

Have we considered the very real possibility that not all warp drives work the same way... that some ships can safely go to warp inside a solar system -- or even in an atmosphere -- while others are at risk of destroying themselves every time they try it.

They might not bother to specify one way or the other because it's something so fundamental to warp drive that it totally goes without saying. Sort of like NASA astronauts neglecting to explain (for the Audience's sake) why they never fire their maneuvering engines while they're next to a space station, while a Dragon and a Soyuz probably wouldn't have the same limitations.
