Well in Star Trek IV when they time travelled Scotty said it drained the dilithium crystals and they had to recrystalize them by using photons from a nuclear reactor. He clearly said they couldn't go to warp without them.
I always saw that as the trip overworked the dilithium crystals, causing them to deteriorate to the point where they were no longer usable.
