If a non-artist may offer a thought:

Except you'd have to be careful not to be pointing at anyone you like when you come out of warp, since the accumulated particles would then shoot forward in a high-energy burst. On the other hand, that would make one heck of a surprise-attack weapon.
I can see this being used for strategies in space combat. Maybe advanced enough technology might allow for the storing of these accumulated particles, for an energy source? Or to collect them in capacitors, which can then be discharged as particle weapons in combat? Perhaps both?
We will likely need to find a way to lessen the effects of these accumulated particles, similar to how we are currently needing to lessen sonic booms resulting from going supersonic. Otherwise, the dangers would really limit where you could come out of warp.
