Prime Timeline
(The root of all realities)

An engine capable of faster-than-light speeds,[1] warp drive was invented on Earth[2] by Zefram Cochrane[3] prior to 2063.[2] The S.S. Bonaventure 10281NCC, the first Earth ship with warp drive, disappeared in the Delta Triangle during its third mission.[4] Some time between 2236 and 2254, the so-called "time barrier" was broken.[1] Without warp drive, destinations that were otherwise days away were, instead, years distant.[5] Warp engines used the energy produced from combining matter and antimatter[6] to warp space and exceed the speed of light.[1]
