Re: S.S. Valiant Appearance

Jefferies appeared to consider the rings to be the warp drive. There is no other apparent drive on his various ringship designs. Also, it fits with modern conceptions of a hypothetical "Alcubiere" warp drive requiring a negative energy induction ring. Finally, we are told a nacelle is filled with multiple ring-like "warp coils". It would make sense that an early warp drive might consist of only one or two of those coils.
