A method of attaining faster-than-light warp travel. Devised at a time when warp drives were seen as impractical to install on ships (warp travel via bending space-time itself was thought to require over ten times the amount of energy that exists in the entire universe) and the effects of gravitational fields were not yet fully understood. In this method, gravitational waves are emitted within the gravitational field around the craft, constricting space in the direction of motion and expanding space on the opposite side. This creates a cycle of gravitational waves, enveloping the craft in a closed-off subspace and allowing it to travel at extremely high speeds relative to normal space.
