Generally used to indicate a medium for faster than light travel, but sometimes used as the act of travelling at such speeds. Made famous by Star Trek - ships travel at warp speed through subspace - but common in many other science-fiction settings to allow rapid transit between the stars. Not to be confused with jump-type faster than light travel.
