You can't show me TR-3Bs.
All you have is the same old quoting of a few conspiracy sites -- over and ove and over again. Some bozo makes something up out of whole cloth and you figure that enough people copy and paste it, it will magically come true.
But it won't. No matter how badly you want the TR-3B not to be a hoax, it is.

Firstly, the alcubierre warp drive idea is a theoretically valid way to travel faster than the speed of light.
Secondly, the energy calculations for an alcubierre warp drive have varied dramatically depending on the size and shape of the warp field. Some warp field designs have shown titanic amounts of negative energy density material are needed as you noted. On the other hand other calculations have shown that very tiny amounts of negative energy density material is needed.

The TR-3B is not "Star Trek" technology - no warp nacelles.
The Alcubierre drive principal may be ruled out due to required energy consumption, and an internal warp envelope temperature hotter than a star. But I believe the Burkhard Heim anti-gravity principle could still apply. And it may also use these reactionless engines for lateral propulsion:
And it might be supplemented with some kind of Tesla field, to provide that 'disappearing while in sky' function. Seems akin to the "Philadelphia Experiment".
The TR-3B is "Forbidden Planet" and "Lost In Space" flying saucer technology - albeit triangular rather than circular , in my opinion.

Firstly, the Alcubierre drive doesn't allow you to travel faster than light. The ship never goes faster than light. It's the fabric of space itself which gets screwed with.
Secondly, the energy calculations have been produced 3 times. 1st was by obviously by MA himself. This was all the energy in the universe. The next one was proposed a few years layer by Chris Van Den Broeck. He managed to whittle it down to the energy of an entire galaxy. The 3rd & most recent was just under 2 years ago by Gerald Cleaver & Richard Obousy. This last time they had managed to whittle it down to the size of a large gas giant & that was only for something 10m in size.
Lastly, no point in me going on about Heim theory since I never even referenced it in my post!

True... the EmDrive does not produce enormous thrust.

As to debunking, it's already been done:
