Warp factor - A number representing a faster than light "speed". Using the wf3 formula:
Warp Chart
The nearest [other] Starfleet vessel is 3 weeks away at maximum warp, but the Enterprise is only 1.5 days from the Fortunate. If the Enterprise can do warp 5, this is about half a lightyear. Which gives the other ship a top speed of about 8.7c or warp two-plus. (Fortunate Son)

Warp Five Facility - Facility on Earth that was founded in 2119 to develop the warp five engine designed by Zephram Cochrane and Henry Archer. That endeavor was successfully achieved in 2151 with the launch of Enterprise. Cochrane's dedication speech: "On this site, a powerful engine will be built. An engine that will someday help us to travel... a hundred times faster than we can today. Imagine it... thousands of inhabited planets at our fingertips. And we'll be able to explore those strange new worlds... and seek out new life and new civilazations... This engine will let us go boldly where no man has gone before." (Broken Bow)

Warp coil - Parts of the warp drive, in which plasma is injected, creating the warp field. Warp coils in the nacelles produce a "subspace displacement field". (Cold Front)

Warp Field Theorist - One of the pilgrims (Silik) claims to be a "warp field theorist". (Cold Front)

Warp Trail - A trail of emissions that is left behind by a ship moving at warp speeds. It can be often used to track where a ship has gone. A streak of light can sometimes be seen behind a ship that has just gone to warp. This is also called the warp trail. Enterprise can be seen to have a bluish-white streak behind it at times.

Weapons Array - T'Pol orders the alien ship's "weapons array" targeted. (Civilization)

Weapons Platform - Reed notes that the alien ship has multiple "weapons platforms". (Civilization)

Weapons Test - Reed conducts a weapons test in which they fire some real torpedos at some asteroids to determine the cause of a malfunction in the targeting system. (Fight or Flight)

Webb, George - During the camp out in Strange New World, Mayweather tells the tale of George Webb, who opened an escape pod from a Y-500-class freighter they found drifting in space for 63 yars. Webb, the ship’s assistant chief engineeer, said the metal felt cold and that he could hear a tapping noise from inside the pod, though it turned out to be empty. Webb’s personality changed after the incident ... he often got into fights with the crew and muttered in some unknown alien language. One day he locked himself in engineering and almost overloaded the engines destroying the ship. He jettisoned himself in a lifepod and some say to this day, he drifts in space - possessed by an alien or taken over by the ghost of the dead crewman he found in the original pod. Some say they can occasionally hear him tapping and pick up his distress signal as he drifts through space. Is it a life form, subspace noise, or just the imagination of some comm officers? (Strange New World)

William, Commander (Jim Fitzpatrick) - Human male. 50's. A somewhat temperamental Starfleet officer who serves as attaché to Admiral Forrest. The character is named in honor of TOS actor William Shatner. (Broken Bow)
