"The Science of Star Trek" is written by Lawrence Krauss of Berkeley I believe.

The Uncertainty principle is even simplier than the previous attempt at explaination: To know the position and velocity of a particle you need to detect it. In detecting it you have to bounce of photon off of it. Bouncing a photon off of another photon would change its velocity. The more accuratly you know one, the less accurately you know the other...

Anyway, I believe in Star Trek they use hiesenburg compensators, which probably calculate the effect of bouncing photons off of the test particle and iterating back to the original velocity and position....

p.s. I believe the comment about "why would you want to speed up the universe" as made in reference to model if the usinvers, rather than the univserse itself. As it is at the moment we have a fairly good model of the universe anyway...
