Evolution of Warp
POLL What’s your favorite warp effect?
You can break the history of the warp effect into eras. The Motion Picture had “the tunnel”, the rest of the TOS era movies went with “the streak”, Generations and First Contact used “the stretch”, while the last two TNG era films had a kind of “accelerator” effect, and finally in Star Trek 2009 the ships just “shot” into warp. So which is your fave?
