Quantum Slipstream Drive

Quantum Slipstream Drive is a subspace technology that enables space travel at faster-than-light speeds well beyond conventional warp drive. It does this by manipulating the curvature of subspace around the warp bubble, contracting it in front and expanding it behind via the Alcubierre metric. This has a multiplicative effect on the warp factor, enabling starships to operate at speeds well in excess of Warp 9.975.
