I've never used these "warping" MFDs, but since Orbiter's world only models the Sun, what's their purpose?
Only to jump from planet to planet? I don't get it.

There might be a misunderstanding here. Most "warp" plugins have nothing to do with "Star Trek Warp", they are just to extend the normal time-acceleration of Orbiter
Quote:
Warp Control (Plugin):

WarpCtrl is the way to control the time acceleration factor (time-warp) beyond
the internal limits of Orbiter.
Whenever you need more than a factor of 100000 of time acceleration, this
should help.


Usage:
======
The Plugin just 'extends' the two time acceleration keys: T & R
* 'T' : (UP) to Speed up by a factor of 10
* 'R' : (DWN) to Slow down by a factor of 0.1


Configuration:
==============
There's not much to configure, but you can set a maximum acceleration factor
in the configuration file located in 'Config\WarpCtrl.cfg' if you like.

MaxWarp: Defines the upper limit for the acceleration factor.
The value has to be a factor of ten (e.g. 10, 100, 10000).
If you want no limit for maximum acceleration factor, you should set the
value to 0 (zero)


Inner workings:
===============
As long as your warp is inside the official range [0...100000] is just sets the
'regular' time warp factor of Orbiters core.
Whenever you go beyond, the Plugin just sets the 'regular' warp factor back to
1.0 and updates the MJD every second by 'over-factor' seconds.

This enables you to set up a larger time acceleration factor for a trip to e.g.
Neptune or Uranus.
...from the "readme" of WarpCtrl / WapCtrlMFD I wrote back in 2011

But again, that might also be a misunderstanding (by me)

Well, FTL is hard, even if you try to yell at it with ALL CAPS .
