North pole/south pole of the warp field?
A favored interpretation in many early fan works, the most prominently in Franz Joseph's Technical Manual.
Hmmm, there's no mention of the Alcubierre drive. The forward dome is labeled "space energy / matter sink (acquisition)" and the rear dome is "space energy / matter source (field restoration)".

Neither is very specific, and the latter makes no sense at all. ("Source"?)
