The Emperors Gaze Warp Drive by DiegoGisbertLlorens The Emperors Gaze Warp Drive by DiegoGisbertLlorens
A squad of Daethwatch space marines approaches the imposing warp drive of a derelict vessel. You know, nothing with the word "warp" in it can end up well.

I hope this is not taken as canon. The description was really vague, so I totally improvised,

I don't know if there is any canon description of warp drives. The one that featured in the old Bloodquest comic was rather silly to my tast. So this forboding piece of enginering you've come up with is the best guess I've seen  to date =)

Star trek warp drives are not warp related, despite the name. They are matter-antimatter reactors.

40k plasma drives use warp tech to overclock a mini star, while the 40k plasma drives use that energy to tear the rift between warp and space. So a 40k warp drive is not even a power generator.

Pretty interesting, but I guess the 40K universe was never intentended to give actual explanations about how physics work there. When in doubt, they always can use three universal 40K rules:

-The Warp did it.
-Chaos did it.
-The Big E did it and he never told the trick to anyone.

More importantly, there are endless techs in the 40K universe. That vessel could be something lost tens of millennia ago, or alien beyond comprehension. There are few, if any, hard and fast rules in 40k. Look at how fluff has changed just between Rogue Trader and now.

When will someone make a crossover with the StarTreks with their Warpdrive being the very ineffective form of leeching a pure demon (the core) of it's powers.
And without gellarfield they can't get even near the true speed (above Warp 10)

As they say, Star Trek is more like Science-fiction, while 40K wouldme more like science-fantasy-fiction. Difficult crossover.

Difficult per sé? No.
Harder than your run-off-the-mill Naruto-ff? Yes.
Most seem to forget that the whole time 'The war in heaven' was only technological. And THEN it all coes pinoccio and shit's getting real.

A gorgeous image to depict something I've never really thought about - what a Warp Drive looks like. Oh, sure, there are tons of images showing Warp Drives being used or destroyed, but the actual drive itself? This is a first.
Kudos!

Warp drives are the engines which make a vessel capable of making the transition from real space to the Warp, whatever it is, and thus travel huge distances in a relatively small period of time.

Oh, no. Navigators can guide vessels across the Warp, but they do not have the power to move them from real space to the Empirean.

You know, for some reason I always thought that the Warp Drives used by the Imperium wouldn't look like much.

What a fool have I been.

Excellent work. You have provided much needed inspiration. :)

Well, considering how most buildings and devices of the Imperium are made it is no great stretch of imagination to think that something as powerful, important, dangerous, and above all, secretive (at least when it comes to their construction) would be made to look like something between a light house and a gothic cathedral.
