|Avoid tricky time dilation, with WARP DRIVE!|
Alcubierre bends space in order to cheat Einstein and make a mockery of his ludicrous theories, of course cheating Einstein always takes a ton of energy... More precisely the number of tons that make up the entirety of Jupiter, which is umm, a lot of tons.... So many tons that it clearly makes such a propulsion system a bit of a non-starter since no ship in Star Trek appears to be towing a gas giant behind it, sucking its mass into its warp core with some type of big straw.
|How many tons? How the hell should I know, Wes? - It wasn't written in the script.|

I HAVE QUESTIONS!
Oh there's a surprise, go on then....
Therefore I ask:
Is Prometheus real future and ancient mythology?
Is Damon Lindeloff noble future-seer?
Perhaps most shockingly, we discover that Eeendiana Jones 4 is a semi-plausible reality.
I would stake my reputation upon this being true.
If I may interject, Erich. This news will clearly be a boon to those in fringe science... Since it utterly blows the 'can't get here from there' argument out of the water.. Presumably a whole new series of Ancient Aliens is therefore in the works?
I have already ordered brand new yacht in anticipation!
But perhaps the best part of the following article which validates and unfortunately inspired this trek into madness: http://www.space.com/17628-warp-drive-possible-interstellar-spaceflight.html
"White and his colleagues have begun experimenting with a mini version of the warp drive in their laboratory."
Which is why I said they'd probably be wearing a lab coat.... Or perhaps an old pair of jeans and crinkled T-shirt (I am as stylish as I am talented). It all sounds straightforward enough... Anyone got some Dilithium handy?
