Excellent. Now, if we could just keep the acceleration from plastering us all to the back of the ship.

The idea here is that the bubble of space surrounding the ship will be moving, so the occupants wouldn't feel any acceleration at all.

Space wake sucks. I hate it when that happens. That's why you have to throttle back early and as the space wake approaches gas it just a little and ride it out until it passes and then you can idle the space craft.

Your welcome nasa

The occupants of the warp bubble don't feel any acceleration (or time dilation for that matter).

Read somewhere that a ship exiting warp at its destination would annihilate anything in front of it.

All the random particles the ship encounters during warp would be caught up in the warp wake, compressed, and then slam whatever's in front of the ship at very high energy.

Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star, or bounce too close to a supernova and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it.

The next time I'm in the left lane on the interstate I will exit warp speed immediately behind any slow driver I find.

But is Ludicrous Speed feasible?

Its nuts we could get to Alpha Centauri in two weeks.

And we need a tech board. This was buried in two hours by the OT, while it would go on longer on the tech board.

Been there and done that. Nothing like a good hit of acid for a trip at ludicrous speed.

I just want to be able to make the Kessel Run in less than ELEVEN parsecs.

in our lifetime


Silly nerds. This will never happen.

where will we find the dilithium crystals to power it?

quote:

"The crystals provide power for starship warp drives by channeling electro-plasma released by the mutual annihilation from extremely high temperatures and electro-magnetic radiation. And since Spock and Scotty solved the problem of gradual decrystalization during their time travel mission to the twenty-third century, all we have to do is harness this energy, and BAM! - we're set for the next five thousand years."

We just need to tie this in to PIIHB somehow and it'll stay on the first page.

What about deceleration? Wouldn't we all explode into fine pink mists upon arrival/stoppage from hitting shit?
