"Wages of Fear" - A classic French thriller movie made in 1953.  It was one of many movies
    available aboard Enterprise.             "Vox Sola" [ENT]

Walker - He called the bridge to report that Engineering was secure but that they probably hadn't
    seen the end of the Sphere-builders who were trying to disable their ship.
                                                              "Zero Hour" [ENT]

Warp - Trip distracts the computer on the alien repair station with a comment about duranium pins
    failing if they "jump to warp".         "Dead Stop" [ENT]

Warp coil -  Part of the warp drive located in the nacelles.  Energized Plasma is injected into them
    creating a "subspace displacement field" (i.e. the warp field).
                                                              "Cold Front" [ENT]
    3 warp coils is one of the "compensation options" that the alien repair station will accept.  Presumably
        because warp coils cannot be or are very hard to replicate.
                                                              "Dead Stop" [ENT]
    The warp coils take awhile to charge, but no more than 20 minutes, tops.
                                                               "The Catwalk" [ENT]
    The primary warp coil was "fried" during the Xindi-Reptilian attack at Azati Prime.  To rebuild it
        from scratch would take a couple of weeks if they had the parts... which they didn't.  Instead of
        rebuilding it, Enterprise ended up stealing one from another ship.   The alien warp coil was tied
        into the alien's injector system and could not be transported out without damaging their ship's
        engines.  It needed to be decoupled by hand - a process which took about ten minutes once the
        forcefield around the coil was disabled.  With a few tweaks it fit right into Enterprise's system,
        allowing the Enterprise a top speed of warp 3.2.
                                                                 "Damage" [ENT]

Warp drive - Primary propulsion system used by most faster-than-light (FTL) interstellar spacecraft.
    On Earth, Warp drive was invented by Zefram Cochrane in 2063.
                                                              "Broken Bow" [ENT]

Warp factor - A number quantifying a faster than light "speed".      SEE:  Warp Speed FAQ

Warp Field Theorist - One of the pilgrims (Silik) claims to be a "warp field theorist".
                                                             "Cold Front" [ENT]

Warp Five Facility- Facility on Earth that was founded in 2119 to develop the warp five engine
        proposed by Zephram Cochrane and Henry Archer.   That endeavor was successfully achieved
        in 2151 with the launch of Enterprise.
    Cochrane's dedication speech: "On this site, a powerful engine will be built. An engine that will
        someday help us to travel... a hundred times faster than we can today. Imagine it... thousands
        of inhabited planets at our fingertips. And we'll be able to explore those strange new worlds...
        and seek out new life and new civilizations... This engine will let us go boldly where no man
        has gone before."                           "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    The facility is located outside Bozeman, Montana.  Archer was taken there by his father at age 8,
        where he met such scientists as Tasaki, and Cochrane.
                                                              "Singularity" [ENT]

Warp Injector - Zobral's warp injectors were clogged with plasma residue disabling his vessel.
                                                            "Desert Crossing" [ENT]

Warp Injector Casings - Hauling spent warp injector casings is an unpopular job which Menos
    used as a cover for his smuggling operations.  Spent casings are dangerous, and if proper precautions
    are not taken when handling them, a form of radiation sickness can result which increases one's
    hemolytic cell count.                       "The Seventh" [ENT]

Warp Plasma - A special type of plasma used in the warp engines.
    One of the "compensation options" the alien repair station will accept is 200-liters of "warp plasma".
    Presumably because warp plasma cannot be replicated. Trip advised Archer against parting with
    parts they can't replace, but thinks they can spare the plasma, so that is what he chose as payment.
    Later, Trip wheels a platform with four large metal canisters (marked "warp plasma") into the
    reception room.  They were actually a remote detonated bomb - part of a plan to escape the repair-
    station.                                                   "Dead Stop" [ENT]

Warp Power chart - When Phlox is studying how to start the warp engines, one of the windows displays
    a warp-power chart, as seen in the TNG:TM.  There's a red line, with four exponential peaks,
    repeatedly crossing a yellow curve with a distinct S-bend.  It's embedded within a wide band of blue.
    There are yellow circles at the tip of the second and third spikes, and where the third spike crosses
    the yellow curve.                                "Doctor's Orders" [ENT]

Warp Reactor - The common name for the Gravimetric FField Displacement Manifold.  One can think
Warp Reactor    of it as a "great big engine" but instead of using electricity or chemical fuel
    it runs on antimatter.  It is the core of the warp drive system.
    The dilithium matrix is part of the reactor assembly.
                                           "Cold Front" [ENT]
    The Warp Reactor has eight major components.
                                           "Desert Crossing" [ENT]
    The procedures for restarting the reactor are in the database.  Output must
    be confined to within 300 and 312 millicochranes to prevent fusion of the dilithium matrix unless the
    spatial-compression index is greater than 5.62% or the ship is within two parsecs of a Class-C
    gravimetricfield distortion.  The plasma relays must be closed before beginning the start-up sequence.
    Deuterium pressure must be brought up to at least nominal readings, and the antimatter constrictor
    coils must be online.  When the warp reactor is engaged the intermix should remain stable.  And an
    alarm will sound if the particle confinement needs to be increased.  This can be accomplished by
    increasing power to the magnetic constriction coils.  When the field stabilizes and is holding, the
    warp engines can be engaged.             "Doctor's Orders" [ENT]

Warp Signature - Shran used Enterprise's warp signature which they got during their last encounter
    to find them inside the Expanse.         "Proving Ground" [ENT]

Warp Trail - A trail of emissions that is left behind by a ship moving at warp speeds.  It can be often
    used to track where a ship has gone.  A streak of light can sometimes be seen behind a ship that has
    just gone to warp.  This is also called the warp trail.  Enterprise can be seen to have a bluish-white
    streak behind it at times.  The Klingon ship Bortas followed the rebel's warp trail to a ringed planet
    and find that the rebel ship is docked with an unknown ship (the Enterprise).
                                                                   "Judgment" [ENT]
    SEE Also:  Warp Signature.

Water Polo - A water sport with two teams of swimmers, each of which try to pass a ball into the other
    team's goal.  Archer is quite fond of this sport.
    Archer throws a ball to Reed, with comments about the sport.  He wishes Enterprise had a pool onboard.
                                                            "Strange New World" [ENT]
    During his senior year at school [high school, college, Starfleet Academy?], Archer was a member [captain?]
    of the [men's?] water polo team.  He was determined that they could win every game, and they did, going
    on to the North American finals against Princeton [at least; possibly to the finals above that].  He's still a
    fan of the sport [or possibly just those games that feature his favorite schools].  He watched a match of
    Stanford vs. Texas with Commander Tucker.  He again wishes that Enterprise had a pool onboard.
                                                            "Vox Sola" [ENT]

Weapons Array - T'Pol orders the alien ship's "weapons array" targeted.
                                                             "Civilization" [ENT]

Weapons Lockers - Storage area for handheld weapons aboard the Enterprise.
    There are 14 weapons lockers on Enterprise.
                                                             "Rogue Planet" [ENT]
    All 14 of them were emptied by a Ferengi boarding party.
                                                             "Acquisition" [ENT]

Weapons Platform - Reed notes that the alien ship has multiple "weapons platforms".
                                                             "Civilization" [ENT]

Weapons Signs - Indications of weapons on another ship.

    a question for the crew of the Enterprise about whether germs could live in space.
                                                              "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

Winston Churchill - Hoshi picked up a speech by Winston Churchill on the radio in the alternate timeline
    where he says: "As to the youth of all the Britons, I say, you cannot stop.   There is no halting-place
    at this point.  We have now reached a point in the journey where there can be no pause.  We must go on.
    It must be world anarchy or world order."
                                                               "Storm Front, part 1" [ENT]

World War III - A nuclear war that devastated much of Earth during the mid-21st century.  Some 37
    million people died in the conflict.     "Bread and Circuses" [TOS]
    In the post-atomic horror after this conflict (around 2079), much of Earth reverted to a barbaric
    state, and legal systems were adopted that ended many individual rights including the right to legal
    counsel.                                               "Encounter at Farpoint, part 1" [TNG]
    Earth was still recovering from World War III in the early 22nd century.  One philosopher of the time
    was Liam Dieghan, founder of the Neo-Transcendentalist movement.  Dieghan advocated a return to
    a simpler life, one more in harmony with nature.
                                                                "Up the Long Ladder" [TNG]

Worley Elementary - School located in Kenmare, County Kerrry, Ireland.  Students from Ms. Malvin’s
    class sent artwork and letters to the crew of the S.S. Enterprise.
                                                                "Breaking the Ice" [ENT]

World Cup - In Spring of 2152, Archer mentioned that England has reached the World Cup (soccer) finals.
                                                                "Minefield" [ENT]

"Wraith" - What the Eska call the telepathic lifeforms indigenous to Dakala which they hunt for sport.
Wraith    They also had shape-shifting abilities which made them hard to find on sensors.
    The Eska found that when they were afraid they emitted a chemical
    signature that they could track.  Captain Archer helped the creatures
    cover their tracks since one of them appeared to him and asked for
    his help.  The female wraith was never given a name, but was played
    by Stephanie Niznik.         "Rogue Planet" [ENT]
