Gene Roddenberry may have been inspired. It seems like matter/antimatter fusion starship engines that exist halfway out of the universe just may be the spark of life NASA needs to get us all into deep space travel some day. And as black holes break all the rules so would starships that exist halfway out of the universe.

Fanciful stuff but not very realistic.

Relativity guarantees nothing going faster than light.

Note that nothing has ever been seen to go faster.

That is because if something goes that fast it is out of the universe.

By definition, nothing is out of the universe.

Forget definition--the nature of dark matter is not even in the dictionary yet. Scientists have only recently discovered dark matter. If an object goes fast enough to become disconnected from dark matter it is effectively out of the universe and unimaginable velocities are possible.

If you knew anything about Star Trek at all. You would know that even
Roddenberry could not think past warp engines getting man outside of the
galaxy.
Inter galactic travel was still imagined to take generations.

Besides,.....there's still that ornery energy field at the edge of the
galaxy to get through without making your eyes glow.

There is a lot of truth in fiction you will some day find out. But some of it is still imaginary. The Starship Enterprise could easily make it to Andromeda in about three months and from one end of the universe to the other in eight years.

Forget about fiction.
I'm still waiting for my flying car we were all supposed to have by the year
2000.
That all the "scientists" in the 1960's were telling us about.

Science is no better at telling us bull**** now, than they were then. And
the science fiction writers had just as bad a track record.

When I started reading this thread, I immediately thought about George
Jetson (remember him from the '60 kids show "The Jetsons") and wondered
what powered his "car"!

What time period was "The Jetsons" supposed to be set in??

What else, other than "Spacely Sprockets".
They obviously were in everything.

I can't vouch for accuracy here, but,.....
