    The solution to high energy particle build up from a warp drive is to excellerate time around it.Because the high energy particles would be release faster. http://the warp drive.http://www.dai...t-Death-Stars-

    Your link doesn't seem to work., so I am not sure what you mean by accelerating time around a warp drive (how?).

    As far as I am aware, the classic warp drive (the Alcubierre drive) does not suffer from the high energy particle problem anyway.

    Not much of a solution if we don't know how to accelerate time.

    Also, if the problem is the release of energy, you probably want to slow it down (over years) rather than speed it up and make an even greater explosion.

    Well decellerating time may be a better idea.If they can figure out how to build a warp drive, they can figure
    out how to decellerate time as well.

    Fair comment. But then maybe they can just build a warp drive that doesn't trap particles.

    Did you read the article Strange.
    I think that would be very hard to engineer as well.Any idea how to do that?

    Me? No. My engineering skills are more at the nanometre level! Maybe the ship could flip out of FTL mode every few seconds/minutes/hours to release a small burst of the particles built up so far?

    I was thinking that as well.That was my first idea.

    Scotty had a Deflector dish.
    The engineering that would go into that would be a pittance to the problem of getting the energy needed for a warp drive, anyway.
