Driver coils were also a stage in 24th century impulse drive, using energy from the impulse fusion reactors to envelop the starship in a low-energy subspace field intended to lighten the relative mass of the starship it encompasses. This significantly reduced the mass burden on the impulse drive, allowing for unprecedented rates of acceleration.
In 2372, the driver coil assembly in a shuttlecraft piloted by Tom Paris received a reaction from electromagnetic anomalies in the atmosphere of "Planet Hell", which led to the shuttle crashing on the surface. (VOY: "Parturition")
Later that year, the Delta Flyer II was attacked by the Lokirrim because they suspected The Doctor was a photonic insurgent, which was banned from being in their space. The attack damaged the Flyer's thrusters. Seven of Nine tried to restore propulsion by reinitializing the Flyer II's driver coils. (VOY: "Body and Soul")
