The problem with creating wormholes is that they would require an insane amount of energy to run. You know, about as much energy as there would be if our sun went super-nova right now. A lot of mainstream scientists believe wormholes are possible, but highly improbable to make any sort of use. I believe they mentioned all this in a NOVA special once on Time Travel, or was it a show with Carl Sagan... or maybe I read it in A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking. Either way, if you are interested in anything to do with space theories look up Hawking or Sagan.
Here is an interview on the subject:

Im not very knowledgeable on this, but What is the point of using a wormhole to traverse the universe if the universe is flat? I say this because the shortest route from one place to the other is a straight line, so would'nt i just be quicker to get on a spaceship and fly to a particular destination. like I said i'm kinda ignorant on this subject, so please dont attack me if this is a dumb post
