Rather than time travel which still has certain scientific limitations (at least the science we currently believe) when it comes to going forward
rather than back, I'm inclined to believe more in parallel universes as forecast in the latest quantum theories. I also think the idea of being able
to bend space makes sense. I don't think it would be economical to go with the many generations ship model.
Keep in mind that if we were talking to someone from the 18th century, that person wouldn't be able to fantom the idea of an airplane or car and his
idea of science wouldn't support those ideas. So, I tend to believe that what we now consider impossible or magic could very well become reality
after we learn more about the laws of the universe. Take the question of big bang or not. Our latest theories seem to change almost monthly.
So, let's assume some kind of bending of space as the most logical way to cover huge distances right now. I'm writing a novel right now that uses
parallel universes as a key concept. The more I study the physics behind the idea, the more it fascinates me.
