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

Matter and anti-matter are fed into a warp reactor chamber. This creates enormous amounts of energy which enable a starship to travel at warp speed.

Deuterium, an isotope of Hydrogen common in Earth's oceans, is combined inside a dilithium crystal with its antiparticle. The result is a highly energetic plasma which is then routed to the warp nacelles. Inside the nacelles are a series of warp coils made of verterium cortenide. When the plasma is passed through the coils, a subspace field forms around the ship and it can go faster than light. Admiral William Thomas Riker 19:28, August 9, 2011 (UTC)
