Welcome to Star Trek Answers. What would you like to know?

A breach on the matter injection side would simply reduce the efficiency of the reaction, by slowing it down. A containment breach obviously refers to the magnetic containment of antimatter, which, if not sufficiently contained, results in runaway matter-antimatter annihilation, and a massively-destructive energetic release, as a result.

"Warp-core breach" refers to a breach in the closed, self-contained, warp reactor, while "containment breach" refers to a rupture in the magnetic bottle container containing the antimatter reactant(s). And don't ask me if I believe all the bullshit I just said ProfessorTrek 03:28, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
