What is the meaning of warp speed or FTL speed on Star Trek?

How have theoretical physicists explained the scientific possibility of going faster than the speed of light, beyond what Einstein believed was the limit-speed of the physical laws of the universe?

Noted science fiction scholar and technologist Alan Shapiro answers these questions in detail. He examines the following Star Trek episodes:

"Metamorphosis," "That Which Survives," and "Wink of an Eye" from The Original Series.

"Journey's End," "Force of Nature," "New Ground," and "The Chase" from The Next Generation.

"Past Tense" from Deep Space Nine.

"Caretaker," "Prime Factors," and "Threshold" from Voyager.

"Star Trek: First Contact" (film)
