Haven’t made it through page 1 yet but the need for a light sail when you have several compact fusion reactors is unnecessary complex!! Lose the
sail and laser systems (Want to keep ‘em, I would lose the mirror stuff and do a laser version of LRAD), fusion can fuel things like argon plasma
rockets for slow and steady increase to very fast speeds (there is a guy in England doing this, now. See, this article:
). Particles “pushed
out” at 20 KM a second is probably better than a laser pushing from huge rock(s).
The loss of mass to push is real deal space travel (Star Trek is in the years around 8000 CE, they have had time to work on this! In TV quantum
time!). We will get there (some think we already have!), but like nuclear fusion, the question is when (and the whispers are Lockheed has one in
use... for years!! The “2014 announcement” was that they were taking their ‘black project’ public in a slow release style!
). But for
now, it is all the different ideas we need (see, Gizmo
for flying machines!).
Thanks for a great question about ideas that may work or not. Then putting on the imagineer hat to take an idea and make it better!!
