Re: Warp Drive in Star Trek Into Darkness - [SPOILERS]

Trek does explicitly warp in-system throughout TOS, from 'we'll be warping out of orbit a half-second after ye give the order' in NAKED TIME onward.

The only real 'warp abuse' I know of is TVH, where some nut at ILM or Harve Bennett had the BoP go to warp IN ATMOSPHERE.
Can you say transwarpsonic GIGABOOM!

(they also do it in the novel PRIME DIRECTIVE, but there is sufficient tech and pseudotech plus a massive damage issue, all of which ameliorate the WTF factor.)
