Warp drive was a form of faster-than-light travel. Human ships used warp drive by the 26th century and even into the 51st century. The Tenth Doctor implied that the TARDIS made use of one. (TV: Fear Her)

The Thirteenth Doctor recalled that she used to hot-wire warp drives as a teenager on weekends, though she quickly points out that in her early life on Gallifrey, there were no teenagers, or weekends. (TV: Ascension of the Cybermen)

There were at least three types of warp drive: "continuum warp", "implicate theory" and "supralight speed with dampers". Toroidal time dilators were components of a warp drive. (TV: Warriors' Gate)

Before human life — and all life on Earth for that matter — even began, the Jagaroth created spaceships that used warp drive. The drive could be set up to power 3. However, power 3 would have been suicide if the ship did not have a fully working warp drive. (TV: City of Death)

Human ships of the 26th century were powered by anti-matter, which may have been required for warp drive. the anti-matter was kept inside a stable structure in case of an explosion. Should the navigational computers be tampered with while a ship was in warp drive, it could disintegrate. Warp drive-powered starships were in use up to and possibly beyond the 51st century. (TV: Earthshock, The Girl in the Fireplace)

Warp drive was installed on the freighter XV773 by the kidnappers of Romulus and Remus Sylvest, since the XV class of freighter was never built for it. (TV: The Twin Dilemma)

By 5343, the Harmony and Redemption was capable of cruising at speeds up to warp factor 12. (TV: The Husbands of River Song)

The Imperial Flagship likely possessed an extremely fast version of this drive as Porridge stated that it could "warp jump" into orbit within seconds of detecting his identification. Indeed, the Imperial Flagship arrived at Hedgewick's World of Wonders and transmatted the survivors of the battle aboard in a matter of ten or so seconds. (TV: Nightmare in Silver)

Cyberfighters were equipped with warp drive. This "Cyber warp tech" was not designed for human use, causing some such as Ryan Sinclair to suffer motion sickness. (TV: Ascension of the Cybermen)

In the 24th century of a parallel universe, Starfleet vessels were capable of speeds up to Warp Five. (COMIC: Assimilation²)
