I agree with mbkennel and teotwawkiaiff.
Earlier drives were singilar and less stable.
Due to being less stable they were also easy victims to things that could destabilize the drive componants.
For instance if you took a test mass (your old school disc for instance) surrounded it in a plasma which you intend to use as a EM resonant cavity to
encapsulate your test mass, and if you finely tune the resonance to match something so that a very special effect occures (or maybe fails to)
.....and then you blast said carfully finessed and tuned plasma with radar waves. Especially of the long wavelengths. You might disrupt said EM
resonant plasma cavity, effect goes away and down goes the craft.
Now to stop that sort of thing from happening you might want to try another less susceptible method.
First agenda stop the damned discs from spinning on their axis uncontrollably and fluttering like a falling leaf in the wind.
See when you have something like a field rotating very quickly it tends to have counter rotation on the perimiter with its environment. Think of it
like a gear. The other gear it interacts with will rotate in the opposite direction. Makes the object begin to annoyingly spin. Sorta makes your
ufo look like dopey spinning like a top.
Putting two of these rotating fields next to each other will make things worse. They, with a common virtual gear (the counter rotation) in between
the two will make them orbit around each other and be a major pain in the ass.
Make two counter rotating fields superpositioned will help but probably still not as desirably stable as they would want. Youre still going to
But, put three rotating fields (all rotating the same way) in a triangular configuration you lock each other in place. There is no uncontrolled
rotation. Very stable. Hence the evolution to the triangular platform. So theres one part of the evolution.
Instead of matching this undisclosed something which can have undesirable and dangerous side effects often turning the crew to frappe. Although, what
it allows would put the ncc 1701 to shame in a race to the next star system. Perhaps they can go a different route to keep things safer.
Use same plasma em resonant cavity with the test mass inside and use a soliton polarized laser to keep the field tuned and finessed and adaptable to
sudden changes in the field like say due to encountering various external microwave sources.
The laser can with good computational assistance adapt to correct the fields response to external stimuli dynamically enough to keep the field
The laser would ideally be in a low wavelength of light near infrared (like a deep red light on the bottom of triangle ufos?)
This is for two reasons. The above mentioned soliton to stabilize and finely tune the em field inside said plasma resonant cavity. But, also to in
conjuction with the three rotating dohickys on the corners and signals mixing techniques exploiting a relationship between signal noise , Heisenbergs
uncertainty principle and Planck freauency to phase relationship principles you can (again with say a bose Einstein condensate or super conductors)
drop below the noise threshold into unseen depths thus perturbing the metrics of the vacuum. Digging a hole the universe doesnt like, getting all
negative about its situation. The side effect allows everything within the cavity, test mass included, to reduce mass, inertia and all those good
things but without killing your crew. Cant go to ludicrous speed like in the earlier system (although maybe the same drive can operate in either
configuration) but its more than enough and plenty fast.
Making the strength of this field shapable one can create a gradient squirting the vehicle in a chosen direction.
So less crashes due to drive evolution. This newer approach is less brute force and more finess hence less obvious plasma glowing like a beacon
around vehicle. Its still there, just in less obvious wavelengths to our eyes and not needing to be so brutally strong and bright. So less people
Speaking of not noticing they got something freaky for that that also helps drastically reduce people from noticing. Its not perfect though and
vulnerable to various innocent things I wont go into.
The three thingamajigs that make up the triangles corners. That glow is harder to reduce since the glow is cherenkov in nature which happens when
you perturb your playspace. heck perhaps even due in part to potential tachyon condesation where the fields are the most intense. (Right next to
At least thats one hypothesis as to why there were originally often downed daucers. Why we dont see saucers that often. Why we see triangles more
often. Why they arent always that easy to see.
