It's quite a beast, isn't it? The two Saturn-esque rings around the spacecraft proper are the things that will get the ship encased in the bubble that it needs to get to warp speed. Hang on, before we get too technical, you might want to read DVICE editor Evan Ackerman's explanation on how warp speed works. In a nutshell, you create a bubble around your spaceship and then force the space in the bubble to move faster than the speed of light (as nothing travels faster than the speed of light). Then you push your spaceship along by shrinking the space in front of your craft and extending it behind.
