Need a way to dive through space verses travel through...bend space around the craft so you don't get hit by the odd meteor/planet/star/etc and nerf the whole trip.
Also getting from point A to point B in under a bajillion years would be helpful..so, if you bend space around you to where your not even in our dimensional space, does time sort of stop in your bubble (or outside of it). This is where Relativity becomes difficult to consider
Star-Trek physics don't work in reality!
If you contract & expand space in your ship, then you are still travelling through it. That means anything in your path (dust, rocks, asteroids, comets, radiation etc, etc) will be smacking into you during your journey. So if anyone finds a way to implement a 'warp drive' in future, then they had better have the use of a big honking shield for protection otherwise they won't get very far. Also, there is no relativistic effects if you were in a warp bubble because your ship is not moving, it's being carried along for the ride inside the bubble.
