Default Types of Propulsion in Trek

I discovered a cool website which explains how Trek propulsion systems are somewhat science based.

Warp Drive-http://www.itsf.org/brochure/warp.html

Anti-matter-http://www.itsf.org/brochure/fusion.html

Impulse Drive-http://www.itsf.org/brochure/fusion.html

There's also the "Atomic Rockets" web site, which is a great resource for aspiring SF authors who want to get the science right for their space operas.

More important than any propulsion drive is the plot drive. Better to get the story right before getting the science right.

Otherwise it is just a boring story that is technically accurate. Kind of like science books.

And all of it, thanks to a hamster/gerbil at the engineering core.

You only find that in NuTrek, where Keenser's flatus powers the warp-core.

No, it's part of holy, undeniable Next Generation canon. It's right there on the monitor in main engineering; it's usually covered on-screen, but apparently they slipped up a couple of times.
