Forget Star Trek. A wormhole is more like hyperspace, than a spacewarp. Focus on ufo's and Extended Burkhard Heim physics.

"Heim theory"
en.wikipedia.org...

And because anti-matter is so hard to produce - consider zero-point-field energy.

"Zero-point energy"
en.wikipedia.org...

And the zero-point-field might also be useful as a FTL communication medium.

Thanks for the reply.

"Heim theory"

I like the science of the Star Trek. To have an insight on how a wormhole would look like, I suggest checking these links:

en.wikipedia.org... (Wurmloch.jpg)
www.vis.uni-stuttgart.de...
www.spacetimetravel.org...

The Heim theory requires higher dimensional spacetimes; i.e., more that 4 known dimensions of length, width, height, and time. When I started researching the possibility of faster than light travels by distance reduction approach, I made a tough decision to avoid considering the theories having extra dimensions. They provide numerous probabilities, but I've limited myself only to 4D frameworks.

Of course the zero point energy is the only way! I've presented a paper about it:

Can the Present Technology Create Gross Amounts of Negative Energy Density?

The reason of coming the antimatter powers into the topic was the need of the spaceship to establish the source of its facilities to extract the ZPE out of the quantum vacuum for the propulsion, plus the its other (off-propulsion) needs to control & run itself while interstellar journey.

This is my newest paper:
.
Emitting solitonized laser beams to boost the negative energy density of squeezed regions of the vacuum
.
However, I might change it a little, but it is a good way of producing exotic matter, IMHO.

Recently, I found this interesting post that is relevant to the thread:


Interstellar Space Flight: Social and Economic Considerations


by Richard Obousy


Arguably one of the key factors in the decision to begin construction of an interstellar spacecraft will be the economics. Any interstellar space vehicle is likely to be astronomically expensive to build, and in all likelihood will cost tens, hundreds and possibly thousands of times more than even the International Space Station (ISS). Of course, this potentially multi-trillion dollar burden on today’s suffocated economy is incredibly unlikely. However, we can perform a simple exercise to calculate approximately when such a project becomes fiscally feasible. Before we do consider the economics let us first contemplate some of the motives that might drive us to partake in such a project. Arguably one of the most convincing arguments, although least urgent, is the long-term stability of the sun. Clearly on billion year timescales, continued life on earth cannot be guaranteed. While Earth’s fate is not entirely sealed, the belief that the death of the sun is an event looming in the distant future is widely accepted. Although a civilization of some deep future may engineer ingenious methods to perpetuate life on Earth as long as possible, the Earth and ultimately the solar system itself will become increasingly inhospitable, and more appealing climes will manifest themselves compelling us to visit and maybe colonize other star systems. ...

This page contains some links to interesting articles. I suggest reading them; however those are rather old, but consider the progress in this field is unfortunately slow:
www.earthtech.org...
For example, this article is informative IMO:

Just FYI: A summary of a good book:
arxiv.org...
Progress in revolutionary propulsion physics; Authors: Marc G. Millis; (Submitted on 5 Jan 2011)
.
And another related paper by the same author:
