Normal warp uses a single axis like the axis that runs through the planet using two nacelles to create a single bipolar field.

The coxial-

term coaxial comes from the inner conductor and the outer shield sharing ("co-") the same axis. It is often used as a high-frequency transmission line to carry a high-frequency or broadband signal but may also be used for frequencies as low frequency. The warp field carrying the signal exists (ideally) only in the space between the inner and outer conductors. The shielding reduces interference from external electromagnetic fields, although coax cable does radiate energy, shielding does somewhat reduce the possibility of a transmitting device causing undesired interference through transmission line leakage.

That's what I'm shooting at...not shure it makes sene.

It's about cables.. then suddenly about a warp field... and then back to the cables.

Gotta have something to do with the Heisenberg compensator, a nadion pulse and a replicator malfunction. Other than that? Classified.
