Yes, you get the same effect shooting the Enterprise as it enters warp speed (picture not shown).

Very nice !


And who doesn't know NCC-1701 and NCC-1701-A then shame for them!

Note quite. Enterprise warps through an effect called "Lorentz-Transformation" which is a special case of the Realitivity-Theory (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorentz-Transformation). Essentially you can think about it in a though experiment in the following way: If a train would pass you at light speed, and you are the orthogonal positioned observer, you could see the front and back of the train "warped" at the same time. Now….Enterprise accelerates so fast to "Warp Speed" (whatever that means) that you see the Lorentz-Transformation "in action".

Sorry, could not resist. I'm not a Startreki but I always likes the show, and thought that is a nice touch of the original authors….
