Question: Warp Drive or Singularity Core: Which is more realistically achievable by known science? Further what keeps the Romulans from imploding when they activate this mini black hole, or for that matter how is Warp Drive even achieved? In theory it is possible but the physics says the amount of power required makes it highly improbable to achieve; let alone maintain a terminal velocity beyond a few seconds before said engine would burn itself out. – Before your post, keep in mind the concept of an “ion engine” first introduced by Star Trek’s earlier days was once pure science fiction. This technology is now a viable propulsion system used by NASA/JPL and ESA as recently as the DS1 probe sent earlier this decade to explore a near earth comet.:uhm:

warp drive is theorettically possible and antimatter is being created so matter / antimatter technol;ogy is theoretically possible as well

I call dibs on the first akira class they make:D , but really i do believe we can get past the stars, its just a matter of time.

And speed :D . I believe warpdrive is possible, to bend space/subspace around a ship seems it would drain less energie then to bring a starship at lightspeed with a conventional engine. Several scientist think plausible idea and it could be achieved in the (distant) future. I am not so sure about the microsingularity warpdrive. I'm not an expert on physics of blackhole-theory, but is a blackhole not a stationairy object, which cannot be removed from it's place, because of the immense gravity?

Yes I believe we can travel beyond the stars in the future. Anything is possible.

Tommy, Black Holes aren't stationary, they are moving objects :) And I'd like to think that Humanity wont be stuck on Earth forever, but there are two flaws with this. Either we (as a civilisation) will annihilate ourselves before we get to that stage, or some natural disaster may happen which will kill us. And I have my doubts as to whether we'll be travelling the stars in our life times. :(

It will not be in our life time. The ideal interstellar propulsion system would be one that could get you to other stars as quickly and comfortably as envisioned in star trek. Before this can become a reality, three scientific breakthroughs are needed: discovery of a means to exceed light speed, discovery of a means to propel a vehicle without propellant, and discovery of a means to power such devices. And Earth is NOT a shite hole!

Iraq,Britain well we here in britain have the highest youth crime rating in the Eu-it is a shite hole as the Government controls us,we are managed by other people and we have no freedom,as said in the song for Fireflys opening"Take my love , take my land, take me where I cannot stand-You cannot take the skys from me" the skys where I wanna be
