Re: original explanation of the warp drive

The newest Star Trek movie (2009) alludes to it in the scene where Spock Prime gives Scotty the formula for transporting to a ship at warp.

He says something in regards to "I never thought of space as the thing that's moving." Implying the theory that the ship isn't actually traveling fast than light, but that space warps around the ship to allow for travel great distances very quickly. The fact that one of Starfleet's top engineers didn't realize this is surprising, but we'll ignore that!
