I think that if you are able to generate the energies needed for a warp drive ship, that you are able to generate technology or find a means to counter time dilation. I know that ships in Star Trek operate in subspace when traveling at warp, so it's possible to me that this space operates independently of normal space, and to me this space may have an effect on the time factor.
Trek ships traveled at sub-light speeds all the time - especially when damaged but never for what ever reason obeyed the scientific laws according to Einstein related to time dilation as you approach the speed of light. So either he was wrong or Trek is - I'm betting on Trek.
