Its probably 90%... But if the 90% really cared to understand how impossible space travel truly is ,all 90% would ignore the alien phenomena all together. For some reason the 90% only care about point (a) and point (b) ,not what’s in between ;which is distance . Distance that is massively vast and extremely toxic to all living things.
Basic question: What is the shortest distance between two points of position?
The answer that we were all taught in grade school is...A STRAIGHT LINE. This is INCORRECT!
The actual answer is...The shortest distance between two points of position is ZERO DISTANCE.
Our Universe exists in a Minimum of 10 or 11 Dimensional States and there are probably more. Matter cannot exist in less that 10 or 11 Dimensional States. Plus all Dimensional States are partially governed by every other Dimensional State.
Thus in a One Dimensional State...all points of position in our Universe are the same point. This means that a Highly Advanced Race using a Gravitic Drive...Gravity is an Expression of One Dimensionality...could either Fold or Warp Space/Time which would make the immense Interstellar Distances a NON-FACTOR.
Using any other method of travel would not be viable as you have posted the impracticality of traveling these distances using a form of Propulsion. Since Folding or Warping Space/Time IS NOT A FORM OF PROPULSION...it eliminates both DISTANCE as well as TIME DILATION.
The Method of achieving this is to create a Multiversal Cascade of Energy to represent Mass. This is known as accessing the STRONG FORCE OF GRAVITY. Most people have only heard of the Weak Force of Gravity. When such an Energy Cascade is created using a Matter/Antimatter Reaction generated by a small amount of Antimatter reactive to an element not currently on the Periodic Table which has an Atomic Mass slightly above 100....a Multiversal Energy Cascade generates many times the Energy that could be generated by using another Element reacting with Antimatter.
The Universe reacts to this Energy in the same way it reacts to a Super Amount of Mass. Thus a Gravity Well is created that can be used to Fold Space or in another form of Gravitic Drive...used Directionally. Don't ask me how they Navigate as this is beyond my Pay Grade.
You just described a Tachyon Drive System which is installed on Beamships.
The NavComputer does the navigating for the bridge crew.
